A survey of just over 1,000 IT professionals found Microsoft Azure adoption up to 34% from 20% last year. Among larger enterprise customers, that jump was higher, with 43% of respondents on Azure now, compared to 26% last year.1

Working in the Azure Cloud platform gives developers an undeniable edge. Not only does it open up greater possibilities to develop networks as they see fit, but it allows for greater collaboration, ease of testing out new apps, and improved speed of innovation.

With Azure, developers have the power and flexibility they need to turn ideas into solutions and stay ahead of the competition.
