How to Set Your Small Business IT Up For Growth

Reduce costs while getting the right technology for every phase of your business growth

The only constant is change, especially when it comes to the technology we use to help run our businesses. And the pace of that change is constantly accelerating, whether as a result of major innovations like cloud computing or the impact of economic events.

Technology should be an asset—one that helps you to anticipate, manage, and respond quickly to change. Technology should also help your organization reduce costs and get more from the investments you make.

When it comes to growing with greater efficiency, there are some key questions businesses are asking today:

  • How quickly can we get new employees up and running with the tools they need?
  • How do we keep up with the massive growth in data needed to do business today?
  • Are we getting the maximum return on our technology investments?
  • Can we simplify IT, so less time is spent on repetitive tasks and more is focused on addressing strategic business needs?

Get solutions that help you grow your business with greater efficiency—by reducing costs and getting exactly the technology you need when you need it. And because it’s Microsoft, you can build on familiar tools, so growing your company doesn’t have to mean growing your training and ramp up costs.

Grow efficiently use cases:

 

Scale up or down on demand

Scale your business applications up or down with availability on demand, while only paying for what you use, with Microsoft Azure.

 

Add employees and apps as you go

Quickly equip employees with exactly the apps and services they need, as they need them with Office 365.
Make it easy for each employee to access all their apps and devices with a single sign-on using Azure Active Directory.

 

Run your business on Microsoft Cloud

Get your always up-to-date business applications through a simple monthly subscription with Office 365.
Replace large up-front costs with more affordable pay-as-you-go pricing by hosting business applications like Microsoft Dynamics ERP on Microsoft Azure.

Easily manage the data explosion

 

Bottomless, affordable application storage

Data-driven applications that keep up with your business

Get more from your technology investments

 

Upgrade easily and affordably

Reduce the cost and complexity of IT management

Windows 10 PCs and devices use the same identity service as Office 365, making a single identity—and single sign-on—possible across Office 365, Windows devices, and more than 2,400 Azure Active Directory apps.

 

Get automatic updates from cloud to devices

Reduce time spent keeping everyone up to date and know you’ve always got the latest tools and software with Office 365 and Windows Update for Business.
