NTT Communications brings the agility and fast-paced innovation of cloud computing to your on-premises and private hosted data center environments with a range of Azure Stack solutions.

The Business Case

Every company in every industry around the world is being challenged to transform from an organization that uses digital technology, to a digital organization. Application modernization is at the heart of digital transformation, with the opportunity to help companies engage customers, empower employees, optimize operations and transform products.

Azure provides a rich platform for developers to build modern applications, and in fact most applications are moving to public cloud quickly. Some applications however face technological and regulatory obstacles; regulation, latency, data sensitivity, and customization needs are primary examples. Azure Stack provides a way to run the same applications in on-premises environments. With a consistent cloud platform, organizations can confidently make technology decisions based on business requirements, rather than business decisions based on technology complications.

Extend Azure To Your Own Data Center With Azure Stack

Bring the agility and fast-paced innovation of cloud computing to your on-premises environment with Azure Stack. This extension of Azure allows you to modernize your applications across hybrid cloud environments, balancing flexibility and control.

Plus, developers can build applications using a consistent set of Azure services and DevOps processes and tools, then collaborate with operations to deploy to the location that best meets your business, technical and regulatory requirements. Pre-built solutions from the Azure Marketplace, including open-source tools and technologies, allow developers to speed up new cloud application development.
