Efficiently provide outstanding citizen services by innovating faster and meeting your data privacy requirements.

Update and extend legacy apps

Take advantage of enhanced security, scalability, and flexibility by extending legacy apps to the cloud—and improve the performance of on-premises apps that aren't yet ready for the cloud.

Improve citizen services

Provide practical, predictive, and efficient services for citizens by enhancing your on-premises app and database performance.

Meet compliance regulations

Adhere to specific data compliance, regulatory, and policy requirements by using a common set of tools for building and managing data and apps.

Build, deploy, and run intelligent apps anywhere

Consistently run diverse workloads and extend Azure capabilities almost anywhere—including datacenter, edge, and remote office locations.

Bring the cloud to your factory floor

Streamline your operations and increase your efficiency by running Azure services at the edge from the factory floor, in the cloud, or in on-premises environments—without needing to connect to the internet.

Get immediate intelligence

Help ensure quality control and prevent product damage by monitoring for defects in real time directly on the production line with the intelligence, security, scale, and performance of Azure.

Reduce manufacturing app costs

Lower the costs of intelligent manufacturing app development and moving massive industrial data volumes to the cloud. Also, alleviate network traffic by processing data right on the factory floor.

Accelerate in-store and online retail innovation

Reimagine retail by maximizing on-shelf availability and reducing shrinkage by extending Azure capabilities to the environment of your choice.

Create unforgettable experiences

Increase customer satisfaction by using intelligent data to run your business more efficiently. Get deeper insights into footfall, dwell time, and promotional placements at your physical stores.

Maximize on-shelf availability

Alert store managers to rapidly dwindling items before they run out of stock by monitoring inventory with cameras and other in-store equipment.

Reduce shrinkage

Decrease inventory losses and other shrinkage with intelligence and insights into theft, ticket switching, return frauds, and voids.

Enhance patient outcomes and healthcare experiences

Accelerate healthcare innovation, overcome latency and processing speed challenges, and improve protection of on-premises health information.

Improve analytics and records management

Reduce latency and processing speeds and locally aggregate, process, and store records. And, bring real-time AI and analytics capabilities to specialties like pathology, imaging, research, and genomics.

Modernize legacy systems

Connect medical devices and apps to healthcare IT networks. Aggregate essential data within each device and help safeguard patients from equipment malfunctions by minimizing data delays.

Update clinical environments

Improve emergency department wait times, operating room performance, bed utilization, and patient-flow bottlenecks by transitioning legacy infrastructures and IT environments to the cloud.
