Due to ongoing advances in cloud technology and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions, it’s important for IT professionals to stay up to date by developing new skill sets and learning how to use new tools for effective cloud administration. Microsoft’s Azure Cloud computing platform is an increasingly popular choice for business professionals of all kinds. Overall, Heitzmann’s seminar helped demonstrate how IT professionals can take advantage of Azure Resource Manager (ARM) tools to complete tasks, stay organized and drive cloud optimization.

The seminar provided detailed information about all things Azure, including:

  • The full scope of services that Azure provides,
  • Comparisons between the old ASM platform vs the new ARM platform,
  • How to create and backup Azure virtual machines,
  • Real world examples from experiences in moving clients to Azure, and
  • Future projections of Azure within 5 years and how this may affect hardware purchases.
