Cloud is so much more than a place to store data and run applications. It offers new methods to achieve scale and business value faster than ever before. The most important enabler in all of this is the concept of automation. It is the key to unlocking the potential of the cloud and taking full advantage of the capabilities that cloud offers. Fortunately, automation is easier in the cloud than on-premise.

Join Patrick O’Leary, Microsoft Practice Leader at Softchoice and Skip Purdy, Senior Microsoft Azure Solutions Architect at Softchoice, to learn how to leverage the cloud to deliver applications with higher levels of agility and availability through automation concepts.

What you'll learn:

The Cloud as a Model

The Cloud Difference
