Yesterday Concepts Technologies organised a Distributor Bootcamp for the resellers in Brunei, with the theme to empower the partners to be more efficient in dealing with cloud. I’ve learnt something new along the way and it’s Microsoft Azure – which can be a “Platform as a Service” (Paas) or even “Infrastructure as a Service” (IaaS). The bootcamp also introduced new licensing updates on Windows Server 2016 and System Centre 2016.
The event took place at the Brilliance Hall at Concepts Computer and Afif Mohamed Ali, Country Manager of Microsoft Brunei gave his welcoming remarks to the audience to kick start the event. He took over Haniza Zakariya since August 2016 as the Country Manager of Microsoft Brunei.
Concepts Technologies emphasized that Microsoft Azure is a growing collection of integrated cloud services where developers and IT professionals build, deploy and manage applications through our global network of data centres.
Now it’s a different story. With Microsoft Azure, you can be anywhere you want., using the tools, applications, and even frameworks of your choice. It’s more like an open source technology. It’s also an ideal place for hosting and website creation. So for those who are creating websites for the end users, Microsoft Azure would be a good choice.
As a Microsoft distributor in Brunei, Concepts Technologies is paving way on the challenging their partners and resellers to invest in the open source technology, data or apps and extend it to the cloud. You will enjoy seamless hybrid cloud capabilities in Azure span infrastructure, data, user identity, apps and management.
The event is in collaboration with Microsoft Brunei and they aim to keep the momentum of conducting events like this and nurture the growth of technology in Brunei.
