If you are like most companies, you see the value of the importance of accessing data and leveraging this to turn it into insightful decision making. By utilising the power of cloud processing you make this data accessible across your entire organisation to inform plans and reform systems in real time.
Today, we all expect great user experiences and powerful capabilities from technology in both our personal and work lives. We see this in the emergence of disruptive business models from companies like Uber, Spotify, and AirBnB. None of these disruptive industry leaders actually owns assets — Uber does not own cars; Spotify does not own music; and AirBnB does not own real estate. They do however own customer data, and they are able to develop new service models and target customers with compelling offers based on vast amounts of data turned into business intelligence, which, in turn informs business innovations.
The disruptive business model works by offering similar services at a lower cost than a traditional company. For example, Uber uses Mobility as a Service (MaaS) to target social users, and it offers more convenience at a lower cost than a traditional taxi service. Uber is utilising the shared economy system, as well as peer-to-peer (P2P) sharing to make choosing them seamless and easy for the rider. Behind the scenes, Azure’s web, mobile, data analytics, and business intelligence solutions allow your company to stay ahead of the competition and make informed decisions in real time.
As an organisation you need to make smart, well-informed business decisions based on business-specific algorithms tailored to the business’ unique needs. With Microsoft Azure, you can do this by integrating Azure into your existing system. Azure lets you maximise what you can do with your data with its developed industry-leading Web, Mobile, Data Analytics, and Business Intelligence solutions.
It is likely you have some questions about how this all works and what it means for your team in terms of management, such as:
- Web + Mobile: What are the advantages of the Azure web or mobile services and what things could I do to help give customers a personalized experience?
- Data Analytics: What critical things can I do with my data that will help my business grow and make informed decisions?
- Business Intelligence: How can BI help?
