Cloud Computing with Microsoft Azure
Industry Education Programme
Microsoft Azure is Microsoft’s public cloud computing platform. It provides a range of cloud services, including computing, analytics, storage and networking. Users can choose from these services to develop and scale new applications or run existing applications in the public cloud.
The Azure platform aims to help businesses manage challenges and meet their organisational goals. It offers tools that support all industries — including e-commerce, finance and various Fortune 500 companies— and is compatible with open source technologies. This provides users with the flexibility to use their preferred tools and technologies.
The industries include Energy, Financial Services, Public Service, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Retail, Media and Entertainment. And those professionals that make use of it are Public Servant, Accountant, Developers, Nurses, Doctors, Engineers, Film Directors and so on.
Microsoft provides a learning environment for students through Microsoft Learn. Microsoft Learn is a free, online learning platform that allows students to learn Azure technologies at their own pace. Learning Paths combine modules that enable students to start with the basics and then move to advanced methods that address real-world challenges.
