It’s no secret that the cloud is taking its place as the leading technology for SaaS, IaaS and PaaS. However, there’s another shift taking place – IT departments are moving from managing costs to generating revenue. It’s a digital transformation that’s focused on the cloud. And, Microsoft Azure is leading the way.
The cloud is a huge part of this because of its flexibility. It can deliver what we’ve all come to expect from most any service in our personal and work lives – greater user experiences and powerful capabilities – something business organizations across industries are also expecting from their technology. That means organizations are making the technology shift to the cloud, especially Microsoft Azure, and they need cloud service providers to help manage this for them.
Chances are it’s at the core of your business strategy, too. The reality is that if you aren’t currently investing in the cloud, over the next five years you will be. Many organizations that have already invested in the cloud are now finding they need assistance maximizing its efficiencies, increasing security, and helping IT estimate the consumption dollars. Truly, the flexibility of cloud environments can easily get out of financial control – it’s not a simple turn-on-and-go scenario.
Because of this shift, we are often asked:
- Do I get 24×7 support?
- Can we manage our own security?
- How can I properly estimate my monthly consumption costs?
- Which workloads or applications should I move to the cloud?
- Do I have to pay for Disaster Recovery when my VM’s are turned off?
- Can I specify a geographic region to guarantee my data stays in the United States?
These conversations are drastically different than just a few years ago. If it’s time to make the shift or get your cloud services under control, find an experienced provider with the experts in place to help you get it right the first time.
