Adopting cloud-based ways of working is becoming more and more essential for staff productivity and collaboration, for saving time and money, and driving better customer experiences.
There’s no doubt that cloud adoption is growing fast. In 2017, Azure adoption almost doubled from 26% to 43% in enterprises and an incredible 95% of organisation are running applications or experimenting with Infrastructure as a Service.
However, a move to the cloud can also feel overwhelming, and without the right guidance, it can be difficult to know where to start. As well as determining which applications are most suitable for the cloud, you need to migrate your data seamlessly, guarantee flawless security and data protection, and ensure your people are informed and engaged with new, cloud-based ways of working.
To do so effectively, you need a partner you can trust.
Discover how Data#3’s comprehensive suite of Azure services can help you hit the mark, no matter where you are in your Azure journey.
