Most people do not believe that Linux and OSS tools / application layers are first class citizens in our Azure services. We have come a long way in a short period of time to reverse that line of thought. Learn from experts in the Linux and OSS world how to design and deploy Linux and supporting technologies in your Azure environment. You can deploy machines from our Gallery or pull images from our VMDepot to get started quickly without having to re-invent the wheel.
SharePoint 2013 is not just a collection of lists and libraries anymore. It is a big product with lots of built-in out of the box services. We as SharePoint developers used to build a lot on the top of SharePoint, but with rapidly growing product functionality, there is less need for developing custom code. In fact there is more need for consultants that they know SharePoint out of the box services and features and they also know how to configure and use them. The new generation of SharePoint architects, have deep understanding of built-in services and their limits so that they can decide whether to develop custom code or just enable a built-in Service. This approach makes SharePoint development quick and dramatically reduces the cost of maintenance and support.
In this session, we discuss how to transform the economics of hybrid clouds built with Cloud OS. We look at the process of metering granular usage and cost data for Microsoft System Center 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V, Windows Azure Pack, Azure public cloud, and other non-Microsoft IT resources, and then transform it into actionable financial intelligence. We discuss a variety of use cases, such as multi-tenant chargeback and billing, demand forecasting, profit management, technology trends, and what-if modeling, to get a better understanding of how enterprises and service providers are using IT Financial Management to optimize costs and drive greater business agility with the Microsoft cloud platform and Cloud Cruiser.
