Microsoft migrated its products content management application to cloud services in Microsoft Azure. The application, built long before Microsoft began developing modern app experiences in Azure, relied on an aging physical infrastructure that had grown complex and was difficult to manage. Migrating to Azure improved security, scalability, performance, and reliability of this business-critical application.
The workforce at Microsoft is incredibly diverse and includes more than 16,000 employees who come from different countries—all require work authorization to live and work in the United States. To help manage the complex immigration and travel issues for these employees and their dependents, we created a solution with configurable Dynamics 365 features. Learn how it helps simplify complex immigration workflows, creates and reuses forms, and integrates with partner systems.
Microsoft recently migrated our SAP environment to Azure on the S/4HANA platform, and we’re already seeing greater agility, scalability, and efficiency. We recognized the importance of proactively addressing SAP security issues in Azure, and so we developed a strategy to protect SAP assets and data with Azure security solutions and SAP tools. We intend our environment to be secure by design, with integrated systems, tight controls, and effective monitoring so that we can mitigate current and emerging security risks.
At Microsoft, continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) helps internal engineers release more than 1,000 builds per month through the Visual Studio Team Services platform. Software engineers who run the most critical line-of-business applications built on modern Azure technologies discuss our release management processes and principles. Learn how we organize our development teams and subscriptions—all while driving fast and maintaining control.
At Microsoft, adopting cloud services in Azure helped us embrace digital transformation that includes both technology and culture change. Our experts discuss the technical and cultural journey of the Core Services Engineering and Operations organization (formerly known as Microsoft IT) as it transformed from a rigid, process-centric operating model to an agile, scalable model with native cloud solutions in Azure. They answer questions from the audience, share our roadmap for change, and discuss the team’s focus on ensuring reliable, secure, and optimized services.
Now that we’ve migrated most applications and services to Azure, the infrastructure operations team at Microsoft is transforming its processes and tools to simplify management and reporting. Our experts explain our cloud architecture and how we manage apps and services in the cloud at Microsoft with Azure Resource Manager and cloud-based management tools. They discuss how our environment has evolved from centralized cloud management to self-service management and answer questions from the audience.
