Cloud N°9: Microsoft Azure 

More than 80 percent of enterprise workloads could be running in the cloud in 2020. The benefits include greater flexibility, efficiency, productivity and scalability, and lower costs.

The Microsoft solution Azure is one of the strongest cloud services on the market. A major advantage of the scalable and customizable platform: data can be stored partly in the cloud and partly locally. Another positive factor: programs can also be used in Azure with locally stored data. 

Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things

diconium is a specialist in the fields of data and artificial intelligence and also offers future-oriented IoT solutions. Both technologies will be taken to a new level in conjunction with Azure.  

Microsoft provides a range of powerful AI-based personalisation functions for e-commerce. Microsoft Azure's Cognitive Services offer a range of machine learning tools that process large data sets and handle personalization models. diconium gets the most out of the possibilities for you as a technology consultant and implementer.

Our customized gateway solutions enable communication between sensor networks and end-user devices.

BEST CASES

VOLKSWAGEN

With diconium as its technology partner, the Volkswagen Group is taking the next step in its digitization strategy. A central component is the global online sales platform, through which Volkswagen customers can purchase and also manage all upcoming "We" services and on-demand functions for the connected car. Microsoft plays an important role as a strategic partner in this context. 

MANUFACTURER FOR DIGITAL PRINT PRODUCTS

diconium meets Microsoft

diconium managing director Markus Böhm In conversation with Alexandra Mennes, Senior Partner Manager At Microsoft

Alexandra Mennes: Why has diconium become a partner of Microsoft?

Markus Böhm: For us, Microsoft is not the extended workbench, but the extension of our service portfolio. In terms of infrastructure, when we talk about the Azure Cloud.

Mennes: Which topic has particularly great potential in this cooperation?

Böhm:  I'm thinking about the Internet of Things. More than 400 employees work on this topic in our Indian branch alone. And rightly so! Because IoT is attractive for almost all companies - even in retail commerce.  And ultimately also in the area of AI, where it is about integrating Microsoft's Cognitive Services and leveraging your expertise.

Mennes: What do you think the customer gets from our partnership?

Böhm: Through our close partnership we have a much better and faster access to your expertise. The magic word here is Go-to-Market. You are also ideally positioned globally. diconium is also becoming more and more international, as are our customers. Having accelerated access to this makes a clear added value for the customer.

Mennes: I see another advantage. Many companies have a knot in the C-Level area. On the one hand there is IT, which is stepping on the brakes a bit. On the other side there is the CDO or CMO who has to drive the digital transformation. Together we can manage to solve the problem for the customer. So that they can move forward in their transformation - at the right speed.

Böhm: For us, transformation is also not just technology. There are three factors: One is people culture - in other words, a clear change in mindset. Then there is the issue of processes. And the third factor is IT. Many customers try to beat or solve this issue with IT. And they think: Okay, if I go to the cloud, I've already taken a step towards digitalization. That's certainly a step in the right direction, yes, but it's not the full one.

What's next?
