Academic research

Researchers around the world are using Microsoft Azure to enable them to accelerate their research. Microsoft Azure provides an open, flexible, global platform that supports multiple programming languages, tools, and frameworks allowing researchers to achieve faster results and achieve more using the cloud.

Analyze data with powerful cloud computing

Analyzing large volumes of big data requires high-performing, super computation power. Microsoft’s technologies and services can help with this process.

CASE STUDY

Tackling traffic jams with Microsoft Azure

The Federal University of Minas Gerais—home to one of Brazil’s foremost computer science programs—is using Microsoft Azure to solve traffic jams. The goal is to predict traffic conditions over 15 minutes to an hour, so drivers can be alerted of likely traffic snarls.

Explore insights, visualizations and data sources

Once research teams are empowered to analyze, exploring data is paramount to uncovering new truths and patterns, and accelerating discoveries.

CASE STUDY

Flood prediction and response with Cortana and Azure

The University of Texas used Microsoft Azure to centralize flood data in the cloud for better predictions and responses. The result was a groundbreaking prototype for a national flood data-modeling and mapping with the potential to provide life- and cost-saving information to the public.
