MVPDays: Meeting IT's Needs for Simple, Flexible, Low Cost App Delivery

Posted by Tom Rose on Sep 30, 2015

I spent last week in Canada, where I met with hundreds of IT pros at the Microsoft MVP Days Community Roadshow. At our stops in Vancouver, Calgary, and Edmonton, we heard the same IT challenges repeated:

  • "Our IT project list is constantly expanding."
  • "They expect us to do more but they don't give us more budget."
  • "There aren't enough of us in IT to get everything we want done."
  • "We need tools that simplify our work and make us more efficient."
  • "I wish I could offload basic management tasks to less experienced admins."

Unidesk was a big hit on the roadshow because our layering innovation offers relief from these challenges when it comes to the delivery of Windows desktops and applications:

To Keep Microsoft Commercial Cloud Growing Like Crazy, Azure Management Tools Needed

Posted by Tom Rose on Apr 28, 2015

Sanford C. Bernstein just released "MSFT Q315: Who's Got the Biggest Cloud Now? ...And It Grows Faster Too!!!" The Wall Street brokerage firm's analysis of Microsoft's Q3 results found that the Commerical Cloud segment - which includes Microsoft Azure - helped the company beat consensus estimates for revenue, EPS, and operating margin.

Bernstein Senior Analyst Mark Moerdler writes "Microsoft's Commercial Cloud now has an annualized revenue run rate of $6.3B and grew 111% in constant currency this quarter. Note this makes their Commercial Cloud larger than Salesforce.com and growing over 3x as fast." Later on he reports that "customer usage of Azure compute doubled."

To sustain this incredible pace, however, Azure management tools will be needed. Here's why.
