Microsoft® Azure is rapidly becoming the platform of choice for hybrid cloud adoption. According to the 451 Research Voice of the Enterprise: Cloud Transformation survey that tracks disruption in the cloud marketplace, Microsoft Azure was the fastest growing cloud platform in 2016 with 116% growth in revenues—compared to just 55% for competition – in a $22 billion market2. As an extension of Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Azure Stack offers services in an on-premises cloud environment under your control. By enabling a consistent and flexible hybrid cloud environment, your developers can leverage the same tools and processes to build apps for both private and public cloud, and then deploy these to the optimal target platform that best meets your business, regulatory, and technical requirements. But, the decision to deploy and start tinkering with a new Microsoft Azure Stack initiative is not something you can make overnight. It needs planning, strategic thinking, a vision of where the change could possibly take you, and how long it will take for the returns on your investment to impact your business growth positively. It’s a journey that can be accomplished better with Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Capgemini.
