Struggling to keep ahead of the cloud-service curve
Gartner predicts that Worldwide Public Cloud Revenue will grow 21.4 percent in 2018, as a result of the fact that companies are now spending more on cloud services than they are on cloud infrastructure and software combined.
But for forward-thinking organizations looking to capitalize on this trend, staying on top of improvements to today’s cloud technologies means maintaining a continued commitment to learning. Too often, organizations lack the time and resources to keep up with Microsoft’s ever-increasing platform of services whose benefits spring from cloud-based foundations. With multiple new capabilities being released each year, even the most cloud-savvy customers struggle to keep ahead of the cloud-service curve. What’s worse, many of today’s decision makers spend too much of their focus on the technology itself, rather than investigating the proven impact a solidly implemented cloud service strategy can offer their organization.
