Building applications on the Microsoft Cloud: A guide for enterprise application leaders

Dan Wahlin

If you’re an enterprise IT leader, you don’t need to know every detail of the technologies your organization uses. You do, however, need to understand the big picture. What technologies should your people use? How do those technologies fit together? And most important, what choices will provide the most business value going forward?

The Microsoft Cloud, which includes Azure, Power Platform, Microsoft 365, GitHub, Dynamics 365, and more, illustrates this challenge. While many enterprise application development leaders understand the value of creating applications on Azure, the truth is that you can use the entire Microsoft Cloud as an application platform. Since your organization is likely already using many Microsoft Cloud components, it makes sense to create applications that build on the services they provide.
