Microsoft Azure is a public cloud computing platform that serves as the driving force behind the success of countless organizations. It offers a plethora of solutions, including Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). Microsoft Azure is a versatile tool that can be used for analytics, storage, virtual computing, networking, and much more. Thanks to its flexibility and affordability, it has quickly replaced on-premise servers for many companies!

To appreciate the power of MS Azure, it is worth having a look at some case studies. In this article, let us look at some companies using Microsoft Azure and learn how it helps them enhance the efficiency of their daily operations.

#1. General Electronics (GE) Digital

GE Digital is an industry leader in airline systems. Knowing the importance of safety and efficiency. GE Digital developed FlightPulse, an app that offers airline pilots data and analytics to make every flight safer and more efficient in terms of fuel usage and sustainability.

While collecting data isn’t a hassle, one major challenge is making it human-readable and usable. That is the purpose of FlightPulse. It collects, processes, and simplifies data such as temperature, pressure, fuel levels, and weather indicators. Pilots can access this data and make informed decisions with the help of their FlightPulse dashboard.

With Microsoft developer tools, GitHub, and Microsoft Azure, GE Digital was able to build and deploy FlightPulse in just a few months. Currently, they are developing on streamlining pre-flight and post-flight analytics data through Azure for a smoother user experience.

#2. BMW

For the automobile giant BMW Group, the goal was to enable cost-effective, faster innovation in the entire automotive and manufacturing sectors. In these sectors, profitability and production are often hampered by complex proprietary systems. These systems create multiple data silos, which make it harder to analyze data and streamline operations. It also leads to slower productivity.

BMW teamed up with MS Azure to create the OMP (Open Manufacturing Platform) to reduce the number of data roadblocks and shorten the time of manufacturing. The OMP is built on the Azure IIoT Cloud Platform. Users can access its innovative reference architecture along with various open-source sections, which adhere to the open industrial and manufacturing standards and are built on an open data model.

#3. Samsung

Samsung has adopted Microsoft Azure to manage its entire Smart TV infrastructure and is one of the top global companies using MS Azure. Samsung was able to significantly reduce costs and increase production capacity.

MS Azure’s flexibility and robust infrastructure allowed Samsung to sustain its current production as well as make decisions to expand its horizons, all while maintaining complete control over its data and operations.

By choosing MS Azure, Samsung is in a position to grow its customer base, which already spans over 120 countries worldwide.

#4. eBay

eBay was one of the first companies to adopt MS Azure back in the year 2010. They wanted to explore how MS Azure could enable them to easily deploy and scale applications in a way that was fast, cost-effective, and customized.

The key benefits of using MS Azure were:

  • eBay was able to quickly provision their own custom application development services.
  • They were able to host marketplace applications on a given public cloud.
  • eBay experienced flexibility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness
  • The project made eBay future-ready by offering insights on how cloud computing could keep them afloat in the coming years
