HPE Business-Ready Adoption of Microsoft Azure Stack

+ show more

Customers choose Microsoft Azure Stack to provide end users, developers, and application owners a cloud platform that is easily and quickly accessible and consumable, taking benefit of a pre-engineered, cloud-native, and hybrid-capable technology for connected or disconnected deployments.

However, the full benefits of Azure Stack are not realized until it is integrated into enterprise IT processes and standards, including automation, security, and monitoring. This requires specific expertise, typically not available within a software development staff.
