Capgemini’s view of the growth of public cloud as a vehicle for innovation.

Following the  launch of our Business Cloud report, our Microsoft Azure Cloud report looks at the drivers for moving to the Public Cloud and in particular Microsoft Azure.  Microsoft is one of our strategic partners and Azure is Microsoft’s Cloud platform.

Microsoft is the only vendor with the ability to deliver the same platform (server, sql and azure) and solutions (Exchange, SharePoint, Lync and Dynamics CRM) across public cloud, private cloud and on premise.

Titled A Close-up View of Microsoft Azure Adoption, Business Decision-Makers are Driving Cloud Trends, the report unveils interesting facts about Azure and Cloud adoption by organizations. The most striking group of findings, according to the report, is about the level of interest in Azure, with more than three in five executives saying they had already evaluated Azure, and over half have made it part of their Cloud strategy.
