On a more serious note, it’s a platform where you can use compute, database, storage and a host of other services on demand. You can build full fledged tech (cruise) or automate discrete tasks. It’s like a lego set, possibilities are endless.

Its a cloud platform, not a point solution so very wide range of possibilities.

Highest level: azure hosts everything you’d put in an on premise server so you dont need a server farm. It comes in with a ton of built in capabilities like security and scaling that all companies need. It then has all kinds of developer tools which help your company built AI, blockchain, analytics, IoT solutions.

Microsoft is also seemingly making huge huge pushes on power platform which is really terrific.

A whole suite of cloud hosted services for all sorts of things, as mentioned above. Storage, databases, servers, VMs, analytics, machine learning, etc. If you want to build an application and require these sorts of resources you can leverage Azure’s services instead of purchasing, maintaining, scaling, and securing your own technical resources. All that IT work is offloaded to Microsoft and their cloud.

Azure is a color. That's it.
