Looking beyond the lift-and-shift: Unlock the true power of Azure

40% of organisations say that controlling cloud costs is their top challenge1 when they migrate to public cloud, but done right, a faster speed of delivery can result in a four to five times higher revenue growth.2

This eBook explores the six greatest challenges that organisations face when transitioning to public cloud, and offers expert advice on how to overcome them. It explains how to avoid common pitfalls, outlines what other organisations have learned from their experiences, and clarifies why cloud success is about more than simply moving workloads from one location to another. You can read about expert strategies to modernise your critical applications and use cloud native services to power greater business value with the Azure platform.
