Microsoft today announced the launch of the Cloud Platform roadmap site, a new resource that provides a comprehensive view of the wide range of improvements and developments across the Cloud Platform business. This Cloud Platform website includes cloud services like Microsoft Azure, Intune, Power BI, and Visual Studio Online; server offerings such as Windows Server, System Center, SQL Server and Visual Studio; and converged system appliance offerings such as Cloud Platform System, Analytics Platform System and StorSimple.
Microsoft thinks that this new website will help ensure its enterprise customers have a comprehensive view and current access to our roadmap, including where they are focusing some of their development efforts and what technology is currently in development and coming within the next few months. This will help them in taking full advantage of the expanding portfolio.
Just as we have accelerated our development processes to meet our customer needs in this fast-moving mobile-first, cloud-first world, we are also transforming our communications processes regarding what’s next for our products and services. We believe this site is an important step on that journey. As the site grows and matures, we’ll look forward to your feedback on what is working and where we can improve, to ensure this resource is a valuable asset for your business.
