There is no doubt that cloud adoption is growing fast. In 2017, Azure adoption almost doubled1. For organisations that are running applications or experimenting with Infrastructure as a Service, adoption is up to 95%1.

The infographic below and our white paper, 8 Best Practices for Cost Optimisation in Microsoft Azure will help you make the most of your cloud investment.
