Access Azure toolkit and take advantage of the opportunity provided by the Microsoft cloud

When companies need to maintain productivity and lower costs to ensure business continuity, cloud migration appears to be a great opportunity for your customers that you can leverage.

A study conducted by Forrester Consulting in August 2019 has shown that companies have a Return on Investment (ROI) of 478% within the third year of migrating to the cloud, recovering the cost of migration in three months. This is because costs are reduced, and new sources of income arise.

Furthermore, operating capacity is accelerated and compliance tools' efficiency is increased. A 24% more productivity from compliance teams, a 39% more agility to comply with new standards, and a 35% reduction of costs of compliance-related fines have been reported.

On the other hand, with the Microsoft cloud, organizations can ensure the survival of their data in case of a disaster and quickly restore app services. Regarding this aspect, a 44% increase in data recovery teams’ efficiency, a 99% reduction in loss of productivity, a 66% decrease in mean time of data recovery, and a 76% increase in backup speed have been observed.

Your customers might be interested in migrating to the cloud for the following reasons:

  • Data center contract expiration
  • Integration of acquisitions
  • Urgent capability needs.
  • Moving from CapEx to OpEx
  • Hardware and software updates
  • Security threats
  • Compliance
  • Application innovations
  • App delivery speed
  • Software end of support

Why should they choose Azure, the Microsoft cloud?

    • It's secure: Microsoft invests more than USD 1 billion annually on cybersecurity research and development and employs more than 3,500 security experts. Azure has more compliance certifications than any other cloud provider.
    • It allows to save in license costs, it is Pay-As-You-Go, and security updates are free.
    • It enables innovation and accelerates operations at a global scale.

 

This toolkit will provide you with resources about the following scenarios:

Windows Virtual Desktop: Enables a safe desk and remote app experience from anywhere.

Dev Ops Git Hub: Enables the collaborative development of apps.

Security: Microsoft helps users to protect themselves against cyberthreats with built-in automation and intelligence.
