Why connect cloud services?

Connected cloud services is when you adopt multiple cloud services in order to achieve your specific goals and objectives e.g. Mobilising your workforce to work more productively and efficiently from anywhere.

Within this showcase, Grey Matter has identified the most relevant cloud services for mobility and which work hand-in-hand with Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS).

Connected cloud services

Bing Maps

The Bing Maps platform provides multiple API options for your application including an AJAX control, a Windows Store apps control, a WPF control, REST Services, and Spatial Data Services. This allows you to develop your own mobile mapping services to benefit you and your customers, such as offering this as an App service to enhance your customer's experience e.g. by proactively providing relevant location details and directions to their nearest retail store or your offices. For more scenarios and details of how Bing Maps could help you to grow your business, please contact Grey Matter by phone: +44 (0)1364 655133 or email:

Microsoft Azure

Beyond the Microsoft Azure products with the Enterprise Management Suite, there is a much broader range of Azure uses and services available, to help you to scale and secure your business with cloud data storage and back-up, to highlight just a couple of popular uses.

Office 365

Office 365 delivers your essential and familiar business productivity tools as cloud services, so you're always up-to-date with the latest Office Apps and game changing products such as Skype for Business and SharePoint. In addition to the extensive end-user features, you can manage and secure mobile devices when they're connected to your Office 365 organisation by using Mobile Device Management (MDM) for Office 365. Mobile devices like smartphones and tablets that are used to access work email, calendar, contacts, and documents play a big part in making sure that employees get their work done anytime, from anywhere. As a result, it’s critical that you protect your organisation's information. You can use MDM for Office 365 to set device security policies and access rules, and to wipe mobile devices if they’re lost or stolen. Office 365 MDM is a good entry level device management option for SMB customers, which can be enhanced by Microsoft Intune, offering PC Management, Mobile App Management, System Center integration and enhanced security features across Windows, iOS and Android devices.
