When it comes to operating efficiently and securely, the setup and configuration of your cloud-based workloads is extremely important. If your Azure instance isn’t properly configured from the outset, you could be exposing your business to security and compliance risks or pouring money down the drain and limiting the many benefits Azure has to offer.
A Forrester survey found that almost half (49%) of enterprises don’t have a formal cloud operations plan; and exactly half lack an active knowledge based of cloud best practices.1
“The cloud” is an operating model, not a destination. Deploying or migrating to the cloud naïvely leads to all sorts of challenges down the road. Through our Health Check Assessments, our team has discovered customers overpaying their Azure bill by 75% – with others having experienced millions of dollars in bill shock due to insufficient knowledge about what is being deployed through to poor or absent governance and release management processes. We’ve even discovered customer credentials for sale on the dark web.
