Why Azure Managed Services are a good choice for your organization
Cloud continues to be one of the fastest growing segments of IT spend. However, the journey to cloud adoption has not been one way forward.
Recent companies have been created as cloud natives; others have progressively migrated with most companies following a hybrid distribution. With last year’s events this process accelerated. However, some companies have now returned some of their apps to premises after migrating.
Why some companies are going back to premises
The February 2021 survey “State of the Hybrid Cloud” Arlington Research and Virtana, surveyed 350 IT leaders in late 2020 to assess their move of traditional on-premises assets or workloads to the public cloud in 2021. Their findings revealed that:
“72% of respondents state that their organization required applications to be repatriated for performance or cost reasons, or a combination of both, as a result of insufficient planning.”
Nonetheless more than 95% of respondent had already started migrating to the cloud. Taking both numbers into consideration, we can imply that companies are migrating, but not necessarily getting cloud right in their first try. This has a deep impact in how much time and effort it takes to migrate to the cloud.
Why it makes sense to have a partner for Azure
As mentioned above, having a partner to assist you makes sense to a lot of companies. It essentially involves less effort, both in time and resources.
For one side, you leverage of their cloud related expertise, precisely to get cloud right the first time. On the other hand, it also helps reduce costs. The investment of managed services with a certified partner tends to be much less than the one that would be needed to hire a team that would equivalate to your partner’s expertise.
