It allows teleworking from any place and device guaranteeing productivity.
Employees will be able to access the desktop and applications they need to work from any device, anywhere. This is possible thanks to Windows Virtual Desktop, an infrastructure for the virtualization of applications and desktops that runs in the Azure cloud.
In addition, it offers a simplified and scalable administration allowing access to multiple sessions paying only for the infrastructure that is used and, saving money since it allows to deactivate the machines when they are not in use.

A business needs to follow the market trends and change itself to thrive in the industry to continue making profits. A business that doesn’t transform itself with time, is unable to stand the test of time. There are a number of companies that were famous in the 80s or 90s but no one remembers them anymore because they failed to transform themselves as per the changing times and thus were either acquired or merged by the big players and are now non-existent like Remington typewriters, Compaq, General Motors, Merry-Go-Round, Kodak, Eastern Airlines, Pan Am and more.
Businesses which are highly scalable, grow exponentially. Scalability helps a business grow without any needless expenditure. So, make your business more scalable with cloud services.
They help you scale resources up or down as per the fluctuations in your business size and needs. Cloud being a subscription based model allows a business to pay for those resources, which they consume and save for non-procured ones.
This level of agility gives an edge to the business using cloud services over the ones still using traditional setup.
