Microsoft Azure for Small Businesses – Mat Morgan, Microsoft Azure Cloud Solution Architect, Microsoft

Microsoft Azure is transforming how companies large and small can take advantage of the latest in Microsoft and Open Source technologies. For this session, we will look broadly at Azure services and focus on ways solution providers can help small organizations use capabilities previously only available to large enterprises. Leveraging experiences with helping large NW enterprises onboard to Azure services, we will look at services that can be easily onboarded for small businesses and how solution providers can expand their business through Azure CSP programs.
