  • AI readiness: Organizations get results with an AI-ready foundation on Azure. In a study of customers using Azure AI services, a composite organization based on the experiences of six interviewees achieved a three-year ROI of 284%. Work output and operational efficiency increased, employee collaboration and safety improved, and organizations reported faster and more data-driven decision-making.
  • Code-to-cloud security: With Azure, you get a complete code-to-cloud security platform. From foundational security to cloud-native workload protection, replacing multiple third-party security tools with comprehensive, multilayered security reduces risk and costs.
  • Maximizing ROI and performance: Workloads run faster and at a lower cost on Azure than with other cloud providers. AWS is up to 5 times more expensive than Azure for Windows Server and SQL Server—and SQL Server runs up to 5.5 times faster on Azure than on AWS.
  • Cloud agility anywhere: Azure meets organizations where they are in their migration journey through an adaptive cloud approach. Azure provides the tools and support to help you secure and govern your entire digital estate across hybrid, multicloud, and edge environments on your own terms.
