Conversations about your cloud strategy are probably the focus of many business meetings today. And if they’re not, they should be. You may ask, ‘Is everyone moving to the cloud?’ The answer is Yes!
When thinking about migrating to the cloud, you’ll need to ask some important questions, including: Do we have the skills and knowledge to be successful? Are we ahead or behind our competition? And most importantly, how can we transition confidently in this ever-changing environment?
Pragmatic Works is a leader in cloud migrations and we can tell you, the time is now. 89% of companies are adopting public cloud platforms and Microsofts’ Azure Cloud is skyrocketing. In the next 18 months, most of companies' IT infrastructure (as well as 28% of IT budgets in 2017) will be cloud based and currently, cloud is the new normal for enterprise applications.
Cloud challenges are declining, such as security, integration and performance issues. But challenges still remain for organizations; from understanding best practices to IT teams being asked to add designing and deploying cloud infrastructure to their already heavy workloads.
