Other than being the world’s largest software maker in terms of revenue, Microsoft is promoting its services on data security and cloud storage to the country’s small and medium enterprises (SMEs), businesses and government agencies. In last Friday’s CIO Summit sponsored by Microsoft Philippines at the Movenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu,  entrepreneurs and government officials were  told how their customer-centric solutions can help their business processes and operations. In a press statement, Ilagan said Microsoft remains committed to keep Philippine businesses competitive owing to the role of digital technologies in changing the way they operate. Microsoft has its Microsoft Cloud computing platform and Microsoft Dynamics CRM, a customer relationship management software package it developed for sales, marketing and service sectors  to offer to its clients in business and government. Ilagan said their cloud services have passed standards for data privacy and security set by the European Union. Saputil said using cloud services is nothing new, comparing it to email “which a majority of Filipinos uses nowadays.” “We are trying to raise awareness about these services to the public, to change their mindset on how information is processed and stored,” he said. Microsoft Azure is Microsoft’s cloud computing platform, a growing collection of integrated services—analytics, computing, database, mobile, networking, storage, and web—for moving faster, achieving more, and saving money. Azure supports the broadest selection of operating systems, programming languages, frameworks, tools, databases and devices. Azure runs on a worldwide network of Microsoft-managed datacenters across 19 regions—more countries and regions than Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud combined.
From small dev-test projects to global product launches, Azure is engineered to handle any workload.
Azure’s pay-as-you-go services can quickly scale up or down to match demand, so you only pay for what you use. Azure’s predictive analytics services like Machine Learning, Power BI and Stream Analytics are redefining business intelligence. The chief executive Satya Nadella has told that the last year was the vital period for both the company and the customers regarding the great digital transformation. According to the report the last quarter profit was just equal to that of the loss of last year. Under the supervision of Nadella, Microsoft has changed its business to cloud computing and related services. This program gives interesting opportunities to partners including distributors, MSPs, ISVs and hosting providers to package their solutions with Microsoft cloud offerings. Many MS partners have said that customers realize real, long-term value from Office 365 once they’re fully onboarded, and they can offer support and value-added solutions through services and applications.

The rise of Apple and Google as major forces in the technology industry has diverted attention away from the fact that Microsoft ruled the roost up until a few years back. While Microsoft has more than held its own in the PC market, the tech industry has expanded considerably and is no longer based on superiority in a single market.
However, one major criticism regarding the Azure platform is that Microsoft has rushed with its release.
Another cause for concern has been the Office 365 Microsoft has been providing alongside Azure.
A positive move on Microsoft’s part has been to create a community portal for Azure where developers can create new features to enhance the platform.
By acquiring the right software and employing cloud storage for data security, government agencies and local governments can streamline their services and reduce paperwork, making them more efficient and extend more services to the public,” said Karrie Ilagan, Microsoft Philippines general manager.
With a little training it can be used by anyone and any information can be made available by the end user to the public for reference and transparency,” he said.
Syquia, executive director of the Department of Budget and Management’s (DBM) Procurement Services, said awareness of these solutions is slowly being introduced to government agencies.

We reserve the right to exclude comments which are inconsistent with our editorial standards. Azure’s integrated tools, pre-built templates, and managed services make it easier to build and manage enterprise, mobile, web, and Internet of Things (IoT) apps faster, using skills developers and IT professionals already have and technologies they already know.
Not Azure, which easily integrates with your existing IT environment through the largest network of secure private connections, hybrid database and storage solutions, and data residency and encryption features—so your assets stay right where you need them.
That’s why Microsoft has made an industry-leading commitment to the protection and privacy of your data. This fast-growing global footprint gives you lots of options for running applications and ensuring great customer performance.
More than 57% of Fortune 500 companies rely on Azure, which offers enterprise grade SLA’s on services, 24×7 tech support, and round-the-clock service health monitoring.
Per-minute billing and a commitment to match competitor prices for popular infrastructure services like compute, storage, and bandwidth means you’re always getting unbeatable price for performance. Make smarter decisions, improve customer service, and uncover new business possibilities from your structured, unstructured, and streaming Internet of Things data.

Last Tuesday this company has posted the report where it was pointed out that the company is in $3.1 billion profit at the end of last quarter.
According to Nadella, the Microsoft cloud is a promising sector to the consumers and this would make the company winner in the coming days.
The in-product tools in the Partner Admin Center will help them to directly manage their customer subscriptions and own the technical support relationship. Microsoft has expanded this platform to all cloud offerings, including Microsoft Azure, Dynamics CRM Online and the list goes on. Therefore, MS has evolved the FastTrack for Office 365 methodology to include enhanced onboarding assistance as a service benefit for qualified Office 365 purchases. And if you want to build a private cloud with them, it's downright impossible if you don’t have a management suite. Naturally, the company is feeling a little insecure, given that many of its fans and customers are questioning some of their moves in the recent past. Losing ground to Google in search and Apple in the mobile devices market, Microsoft has two major rivals that seem to be running away with their market share. The cloud gives them the chance to store all their files and documents safely and without any reason to worry. They should have taken their time to make it foolproof and ready for use by large organizations.
At first, market experts believed this was a great move on the company’s part and that Office 365 would be reliable ‘Software as a Service’ (SaaS).
However, it is going to take much more than this if the company wants to gain an edge over its competitors in the cloud market. Microsoft is also the only vendor positioned as a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrants for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service, Application Platform as a Service, and Cloud Storage Services for the second consecutive year. Azure supports the same technologies millions of developers and IT professionals already rely on and trust.
We were the first cloud provider recognized by the European Union’s data protection authorities for our commitment to rigorous EU privacy laws.

However, the recent profit has made the company again placed in the forefront of the tech market.

Today, Microsoft announced new capabilities for managing mobile devices from the cloud, and its overall vision for integrating the customer data center, the Azure public cloud, and third-party service providers with Windows Server 2012 and System Center 2012 Service Pack 1. It seems that the whole world keeps an eye on Microsoft’s every move and they have to deal with a lot of criticism for their performance. There is another area where Microsoft has been trying to make major inroads: cloud computing.
Microsoft has developed the Azure platform as a means of asserting its presence in the cloud market. This is not to say that Azure doesn’t work or is inadequate but the fact remains that Microsoft’s cloud service is not ready for the big leagues yet. Still, all is not lost and insiders still believe that Microsoft has a better cloud platform than Amazon and a couple of other providers.
Azure’s hybrid cloud solutions give you the best of both worlds: more IT options, less complexity and cost. Microsoft was also the first major cloud provider to adopt the new international cloud privacy standard, ISO 27018.
Given the fact that enterprise customers still account for 80% of the revenue generated by Microsoft, it seems probable that businesses would love to use Azure over other cloud computing platforms.
Now it is up to Microsoft to make some changes to Azure and make it a worthwhile cloud platform. We also launched Azure Government, a stand-alone version of Azure designed to meet the rigorous compliance requirements of U.S.
There is considerable room for improvement and Microsoft has to fill the gaps before it can capture the market. The first part is to update System Center to support all the capabilities of Windows Server 2012 (a not inconsiderable task all by itself). The second part is to roll up the management of these capabilities into a higher-level, more holistic and integrated environment: Microsoft's "Cloud OS", the company's mission to make deploying and managing Microsoft-based cloud computing seamless between company data centers running Windows Server 2012, Windows Azure services, and third party service providers.
This also includes support for management of non-Windows systems, chargeback, and deeper Azure management capabilities such as deploying VMs directly to Azure or backing up running on-premises workloads to Azure with Data Protection Manager. InTune is now tightly integrated with Configuration Manager and provides more mobile device management (MDM) capabilities than its predecessor. For example, Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V network virtualization is a new and critical component to Microsoft’s cloud vision because it separates the virtual network environment (such as a VM’s availability-impacting IP address) from the ever-changing physical network.
I like to think of network virtualization as making a VM “slipperier” because where you move a VM is no longer restricted by its physical IP subnet. If you’re a hosting provider network virtualization isolates your customer networks from one another.
However, implementing Hyper-V network virtualization in a large production environment can be a daunting task.
Virtual Machine Manager in System Center 2012 SP1 greatly simplifies this task with a separate virtual network section that allows you to visualize and manipulate your virtual network, including a view that shows the often confusing VM-to-network relationship. Like Operations Manager’s synthetic transactions (real time actions that simulate a customer’s actions to monitor an application or service’s performance) writ large, the Global Service Monitor provides synthetic transaction monitoring at any one of many Azure points of presence around the world. There are a lot of moving parts that comprise this architecture, so it’ll be interesting to see how well Microsoft’s vision actually knits together in practice for the IT pro or service architect.
