Migration to the cloud is not a technical decision; at its core, it’s a business-related decision. Data centers are expensive, with the costs of real estate, power, servers, storage, and networks, plus operations staff tugging on a company’s bottom line. Organizations thus see the cloud as a way to reduce – or even eliminate – some or all of these expenses. Faster modernization capabilities and increased security underline the decision even more.
The levers driving the migration discussion in your organization can be many—reduced costs, increased operational efficiency, more time for core strategic projects, and enhanced security and reliability while advancing the development process. Which of these pushes you to take the first step towards cloud migration?
When these drivers and timing align, it is time for cloud migration. This is where Microsoft Azure helps.
