Hilco Industrial is the leading international authority on machinery and equipment monetization, managing nearly $5 billion in assets. Its platform allows users to visualize, track and integrate bidding on assets during auctions. Users can also provide logon credentials so they can review purchases through a personalized web portal. The company is a subsidiary of Hilco Global, an independent financial services enterprise. Hilco Industrial executives saw an opportunity to shift their data to a private cloud environment. They migrated their webhosting service to Microsoft Azure, a cloud service that helps business and IT leaders to develop, host, and manage on premise apps and data.
