Azure Cost Savings

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. As you would expect, IT spend on cloud is also increasing, by 2020 Gartner forecasts 28% of IT budgets will be dedicated to cloud2.

However, as more organisations shift workloads and processes to the cloud, it becomes important to assess the cost of cloud migrations. Data#3 has found that a staggering 75% of customers are paying too much for Azure3.

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.

Book an Azure Health Check and ensure you’re not overspending.
