“When we launched Microsoft Cloud Regions in 2019, we saw an immediate acceleration in digital transformation across the region. At the time, we pledged to continue expanding and improving our services to feed the region’s appetite for all things digital. Governance, multi-cloud, open communications, and Artificial Intelligence are vital components of the post-COVID rush in digitization and we are pleased to provide our regional customers with four category-leading services to enable them to engage, empower, optimize and transform.”

Azure Purview

Azure Purview is a unified data-governance solution that allows organizations to manage the use of their on-premises, multi-cloud, and software-as-a-service (SaaS) data. The service enables the creation of a holistic, up-to-date map of the entire data landscape through automated data discovery. Stakeholders can impose policies on sensitive data by formally classifying it and maintaining an audit trail of its use.

Azure Arc

Azure Arc is a suite of technologies that unites the security of Microsoft Azure with its cloud-native services to bring rich, secure functionality to hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Azure Arc allows the management of Windows and Linux physical servers and virtual machines hosted outside of Azure, on-premises, or other cloud providers. This management experience is designed to be consistent with how Azure VMs are managed, using standard Azure constructs such as Azure Policy and applying tags.

Azure Communication Services

Azure Communication Services is a set of rich communication APIs including those for video and SMS, that allow the deployment of applications on any device or platform. Each API allows custom integration with Microsoft Teams, which means app developers can deliver rich video, voice, chat, text messaging, and telephony experiences anywhere for their end-users, across applications, websites, and mobile platforms.

Azure Machine Learning

Azure Machine Learning allows enterprises to build business-critical machine-learning models at scale. Data scientists and developers can collaborate on the development, deployment, and management of responsible, high-quality models while accelerating time to value, by leveraging industry-leading machine learning operations (MLOps), open-source interoperability, and integrated tools.
