The Azure Advantage Program from ICS Solutions is a flexible framework of options that helps you to plan, build, deploy, manage and support applications in the Cloud and leverage the benefits of Cloud Computing in a flexible, rapid and viable manner.
Cloud Computing is the term used to describe large-scale offsite IT resources that are accessed over the internet. Leveraging Cloud Computing has the potential to create significant value for clients by providing unparalleled speed-to-value, enhanced flexibility, lower costs and increased environmental efficiency in data centre services.

Azure aligns with the Microsoft vision of Software-Plus-Services by offering customers, developers, and businesses a transformation in connecting devices, business, productivity and software.
