Join the Webinar and discover how Booz-Allen-Hamilton has implemented latest Microsoft Azure innovations Booz Allen leverages Microsoft Azure as a key part of our cloud platform strategy. Azure is an open and flexible cloud IaaS and PaaS platform that enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. Booz Allen’s Strategic Innovation Group leverages Azure to field key solutions including, but not limited to, collaboration and business intelligence solutions. In this webinar the Booz Allen team will discuss two recent projects that they leveraged Azure for IaaS as a hosting and development platform for SharePoint 2013 and PaaS for SQL Server analytics. By incorporating these technologies in their solutions, Booz Allen was able to provide their clients an existing platform that allowed them to quickly develop their own SharePoint applications as needed. Why Transform the Datacenter? Why Microsoft? With the advent of SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint Online, Booz Allen has been using Microsoft Azure for testing and development of several App solutions to include their Solution Store product that provides for a showcase of solutions throughout an organization. Booz Allen has leveraged the flexible architecture behind Azure to quickly deploy testing environments to staff members, maintaining image version and configuration control to provide for development and testing activities for the Solution Store product. The Booz Allen team has begun to leverage Azure's Platform as a Service capabilities to provide organizations the ability to transition workloads from on premise to the cloud. Using Azure SQL databases, Booz Allen transitioned a series of SQL workloads from on-premise to the cloud, providing developers greater capability to utilize Analytics capabilities provided for through Azure.
