Microsoft established a presence in the government market with Office 365, but the software leader is adding to arsenal with Azure Government and Dynamics CRM Online for Government.

Microsoft is advancing its suite of cloud computing products for the government sector, rolling out versions of the Azure platform and Dynamics CRM specifically for the public sector to join Office 365 Government in the firm's cloud portfolio.

On Tuesday, the software giant announced the general availability of Azure Government, and is signaling that public-sector clients in short order will be able to obtain a version of its cloud-based CRM product geared exclusively for government environments.

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella makes the announcement at a conference in Washington this week. The company is billing the new offering as a unified cloud solution for the public sector, and a major step forward in its government business.

"This is a huge milestone for us in really announcing where is Microsoft going and what are we delivering in compelling and differentiating value to our customers," Greg Myers, Microsoft's vice president of federal sales, said in an interview.

Microsoft's Newest Cloud Offering Merges Productivity and Collaboration

Myers calls Microsoft's newest offering for the government a "coherent and consistent cloud architecture," one that merges the productivity and collaboration tools in Office 365, already in use by nearly 3 million public-sector users, with the company's cloud-based platform and CRM suite.
