Microsoft Azure is a combination of infrastructure, a platform and software in the (public) cloud. Microsoft owns all hardware, software and infrastructure, but you can use the servers, virtual machines, storage, networking and computing power of the Microsoft Cloud. You can effortlessly increase or decrease the desired capacity, and you can link a public cloud to your private cloud or other IT solutions.
You can access your CRM, ERP and BI systems, servers, storage, and databases through the internet. You only pay for the modules and storage you use. Besides, you have access to relevant business information, regardless of device or location, as long as you have an internet connection.
