Innovate faster with Azure data services

Wherever your data is, Microsoft Azure will help you unlock its potential. Build intelligent apps faster using the tools and technologies of your choice and artificial intelligence (AI) that’s already built in.

Easily build and deploy anywhere

Use your team’s existing skill sets and tools you know and love to build intelligent apps and deploy without a change in code. Build once, deploy anywhere: in the cloud, on-premises and on edge devices, with the confidence of global distribution to more data centres than any other provider.

Create an impact using an open platform

Choose your favourite technologies, including open source. Azure supports a range of deployment options, popular stacks and languages and a comprehensive set of data engines. Capitalise on this flexibility, as well as the performance, scale and security delivered by Microsoft technologies, to build apps for any scenario.

Develop apps with built-in intelligence

Building intelligent apps using Azure is easy, because no other platform brings analytics and native AI to your data wherever it lives and in the languages you use. Take advantage of a rich set of cognitive APIs to easily build new experiences into your apps for human-like intelligence.
