In our next Azure ‘n’ Action session, we will explore how many companies are leveraging Software as a Service (SaaS) and Azure Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) to lower their operational costs.
Did you know that by extending your on-premises Active Directory into Windows Azure Active Directory (WAAD), your users can authenticate to Exchange, Lync and SharePoint SaaS by using Windows Azure Active Directory managed accounts, and stop requiring federation back to your on-premises data center by leveraging DirSync with password sync? This allows you to take advantage of Microsoft’s facilities, which provide the redundancy and high availably that you desire, for not only your applications but the underlying authentication infrastructure as well.
Did you know that Windows Azure Active Directory (WAAD) is FREE? It provides you and your organization secure authentication via Azure for your all your devices, and services for a globally mobile workforce.
Do you want to learn how to securely integrate your Office 365 SaaS environment by extending your information architecture into SharePoint 2013 IaaS? You can quickly and securely leverage Windows Azure AD as your Identity Provider to enhance authentication globally.
Are you ready to see this in action? Please join us at the next Azure Café we will walk you through the scenario of an Office 365 SharePoint website integrated with an Office 365 Site Collection, and an IaaS-hosted SharePoint 2013 environment — all using Microsoft to provide authentication.
