10 reasons why Microsoft provides ideal solutions for custom software development

Microsoft Gold Partner

Forward-thinking organizations around the world are achieving tremedous success in custom software development by transitioning to cloud-based business solutions.

As the technological revolution continues to advance at a rapid pace, companies today must remain dedicated to an ongoing adaptation to the latest innovations and evolutions or face the possibility of being left behind.  The efficient use of cloud-based software and applications to improve internal processes, customer services, data management, and daily administrative tasks is crucial to an organization's long-term viability and profitability.  

By choosing Microsoft cloud solutions that include Azure, Dynamics 365, Power BI, and a multitude of amalgamated power apps, businesses can rapidly design, build, deploy, and manage traditionally complex infrastructures with ease.  By collaborating with a reputable Microsoft development partner, these companies further experience maximized security capabilities, unlimited scalability opportunities, and a streamlined systems integration process through a wide variety of technologically advanced tools, both current and those yet to be imagined.

Custom Saas Development

Whether the enterprise is reliant on customizable Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), or Platform as a Service (PaaS) capabilities, Microsoft Azure boasts an enticing combination of opportunities. Microsoft provides a complete software solutions package where end-users can access company-specific applications through a conventional web browser with ease.  Enterprises can also outsource their infrastructure on Azure (IaaS) while creating their own unique web applications without purchasing and maintaining the necessary underlying platform (PaaS).

Microsoft Azure
Additional SaaS benefits include
  • Access to a wide variety of sophisticated, pre-built applications, including ERP and CRM options.
  • Access to free client software without complicated downloads, installations, or plugins.
  • No need to recode software and applications for differing operating systems.
  • Access company software, applications, databases, and email from any web browser.
  • Quick and easy mobilization of the company workforce.
  • Scalable payment plans (Pay-as-you-go).

Scalability and Ductility

For enterprises specializing in custom SaaS development, scalable web applications are of the highest property.  A scalable web app is one that remains fully operational regardless of the number of end-users accessing it at any moment in time.  Scalable web apps creation and deployment through Microsoft Azure rarely require additional coding, and they seldom experience performance hiccups due to unforeseen surges in traffic.  For optimal productivity, IT developers often augment their IT infrastructures with Microsoft Power BI, Microsoft Flow, and various power apps.

Seamless Integration

Regardless of size, industry, or sector, today’s businesses typically rely heavily on a wide range of Microsoft products already. Company-specific processes and authentication protocols usually already exist for Microsoft Office access and Outlook email capabilities to SharePoint and Dynamics 365 management applications.  When upgrading to a Microsoft power platform for enhanced custom software development now and in the future, IT administrators benefit from seamless integration with these existing legacy programs, applications, and related protocols.

4

Unparalleled Hybrid Capabilities

For organizations that utilize both on-premises and cloud-based solutions, Microsoft Azure offers a broad range of enhanced capabilities, including content delivery networks (CDNs), virtual private networks (VPNs), and ExpressRoute connections.  With the most advanced Application Programming Interface (API) technologies available, Azure helps enterprises coordinate with remote servers, social media platforms, third-party vendors, inventory databases, and numerous custom SaaS development assets.

5

Analytics and Intelligence capabilities

Azure is the only cloud-based platform that offers Machine Learning, Cognitive APIs, Bots, and Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) capabilities.  Meanwhile, Microsoft Power BI solutions help enterprises transform data into intelligent, easy-to-understand visualizations that facilitate in-house decision-making processes.  Companies can set alerts for quick identification of anomalies while efficiently monitoring performance objectives in real-time.  Employees can even track pertinent data through a mobile app that requires no additional coding or extra costs.

The Power BI technology also allows in-house managers to connect to essential data though over one-thousand pre-constructed APIs, including those designed for:
Big Commerce
Ebay
Google Big Query
Magento
SalesForce
Shopify
Walmart Marketplace
Accuweather
And Hundreds More...

Maximized Security

Microsoft invests over one billion dollars per year in cybersecurity.  Its industry-leading Security Development Lifecycle (SDL) technology offers state-of-the-art security and privacy considerations throughout all phases of the custom software development process. Microsoft SDL helps developers design optimally secure software and applications, address a constantly evolving variety of compliance security issues, and reduce the customization processes’ overall costs.   Microsoft Azure is also the most trusted cloud-based platform of the U.S. Government and the first to embrace the most current international standard for cloud privacy, ISO/IEC 27018.

7

Identity & Access Management

Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) is the industry-leading solution for Identity & Access Management (IAM) strategies.  In coordination with a reputable Microsoft development partner, companies can maximally protect data and resources by incorporating the most advanced authentication protocols without compromising end user experience.  Meanwhile, the in-house administrative team can manage multiple identities with just a few clicks of the mouse.  They can assign the correct employees and contractors to the proper resources while protecting, monitoring, and auditing other critical assets associated with custom SaaS development.

8

Interoperability

Many forward-thinking organizations are designing their IT environments with a combination of Microsoft and Oracle cloud-based solutions.  Coordination between the two platforms is often challenging, to say the least.  Fortunately, these two revolutionary companies now offer a cloud interoperability partnership for Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). This new technology allows enterprises to connect Azure-based applications, software, and other assets with Oracle cloud-based services.  By essentially connecting the two different clouds, organizations can now consolidate workloads, decrease the complexities of data exchanges, and initiate migrations more efficiently.

9

Ease-of-use

Because Microsoft enjoys a sort of monopoly in the business world for the operating systems market, most IT administrators, developers, and end-users are already familiar with Windows coding protocols. This built-in advantage helps to flatten the learning curve before, during, and after software development and deployment. In fact, Azure is so easy to use that even amateur IT “technicians” can learn and engage with a significant portion of the platform without knowing any programming language at all.

10

Cost-efficiency

Microsoft’s pay-as-you-go model allows businesses and organizations to pay for only the services they need during the custom software development or custom SaaS development processes.  Companies can expand their Azure solutions purchases as-needed and quickly scale individual solutions based on the number of end-users required - which cuts down on IT administrative costs.  Upon initial signup, Azure customers even receive twelve months of free cloud-based services, including those in the areas of artificial intelligence (AI), networking, database management, and various computing technologies. An additional 25 services remain completely free for the lifetime of the company account.
