According to Mr. Nick the virtual meetings are going to reduce the expenses incurred in transport, meals and accommodation as the Ottoman Empire has several regional outlet around Chicago. The company day to day business is going to run as per company requirement because no activities are to be interfered with. Virtual meeting will help the staff to think critical and air their views without the fear of facing other. Through this the company is growing to fulfill set goals as each person is focus and working towards meeting those goals (Barlow 156).
Virtual meetings are easy to conduct as long as the company is well equipped with the technology, encouraging cooperation and honesty among the staffs, maintain momentum in meetings; staff needs are catered for by proving a favorable working environment and ensuring the activities are running as planned (Petz 307).

Virtual meetings, helps in saving time unlike face to face meeting the staff are only going to discuss only one issue but the latter a lot if issues will be covered. Each individual in the Ottoman Empire will be able to raise their concern and hence a lot of time and money will be saved. The virtual meetings are so important since at the end of the meeting the executives need to evaluate whether what they have done is as per according the set rules and objectives (Petz 267). Through the evaluation of performance in the virtual meeting it helps the executives to plan what to do. Virtual meeting, evaluation will be of benefit since each individual will able to know whether they have met their set rules through the presence of internet in the Ottoman Empire. On the other hand, virtual meetings will not allow individual socialize and share their views and hence not a hundred percent appropriate.
Lotta B. Essen a Microsoft representative in Ottoman Empire who suggested the company should use Azure. Azure is cloud repairs platform that allows one to construct, host and scale applications and information in the Microsoft data center. Window Azure will help the company in the expansion, service organization and service hosting since Ottoman is growing at a higher rate (Mackenzie 198).
Azure is an important facility in the company since the company has at around 150 stores all over Chicago at they are growing at ten stores and at rate of twelve percent in the regional. The Azure company will assist the Ottoman Empire since it store are distributed all over Chicago (Krishnan 123).

They are various marketable and open sources that can be implemented in Ottoman Empire instead of Azure. These include ERP system, SQL server Data, Amazon’s Web services and Google AppEngines. The good thing about the Azure is that it always available even remote areas and will be able scaling it data without failure.

Compared to other open sources in the company Azure helps in scaling company’s data and hence ensures that data is hosted and constructed in an effective way. Azure in Ottoman Empire will ensure that hosting and construction of an effective platform in the field.

The Azure will ensure that the company process are running smoothly and scaling of the company data are running smoothly. Ottoman company should ensure that it employs personnel who will always be there to do maintenance of the services so that the company can met it set goals (Mackenzie 300).
