A technology year can be more like 20 human years; your 3-year-old computer could be more like a 60-year-old person. If you have a

Azure – Always at Work in the Background

We like that it’s a living system – one that continues to evolve and grow. If you read the article Microsoft ‘Ignites’ Tech Initiatives, you couldn’t help but notice that Microsoft
