The outstanding compliance credentials of Microsoft Azure was essential for Itello’s strategic choice of Microsoft as its cloud partner. Itello customers operate under strict regulatory requirements when it comes to transparency and security due to their vital societal importance.

In this transition to a more data-centred and data-driven future, cloud technology is key.
