AvePoint, the leader in governance, compliance, and management solutions for social enterprise collaboration platforms, today announced full support for the general availability of Microsoft Windows Azure Infrastructure Services, which enables organizations to move applications into the cloud, as well as a continued strategic relationship with Microsoft to pursue engagements with customers with these technology offerings.
“Microsoft put it best in its announcement of Azure Infrastructure Services – it’s not just about Infrastructure-as-a-Service or Platform-as-a-Service. It’s about utilizing all of an enterprise’s various technology investments to stitch together a cohesive information collaboration story,” said Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang, AvePoint Co-CEO and Co-Founder. “Our unique capability in cross-platform compliance, governance, and infrastructure management means customers with on-premises, cloud, or hybrid environments don’t have to choose only one deployment option to collaborate with confidence.”
