Offer Cloud Assessment Services to Harness the Explosive Growth of the Microsoft Cloud

Cloud computing continued its explosive growth in 2021 and early data suggest 2022 will follow suit. While the Microsoft cloud is not a specific product, when we say “Microsoft Cloud” we are referring to the combination of Microsoft’s Azure public cloud infrastructure and its ubiquitous business application suite, Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), which has built-in cloud services, cloud mail and cloud storage.  

  • In the last two years, Microsoft Azure’s SMB market share has grown from 32% to 46%.  
  • Office 365 is used by over a million companies worldwide as their main productivity software, with close to 600,000 companies in the U.S. alone utilizing the software.  
  • When Azure usage is combined with the data for Microsoft 365, the Microsoft Cloud tops the list of cloud services being actively used by SMBs worldwide.  
  • Also, adoption rates for Azure for the enterprises increased from 60 percent in 2019 to 69 percent in 2020. Around 36 percent of the enterprises spend a sizable $1.2 million or more on Azure every year. 

Industry experts indicate that cloud services are the definitive future of computing. Both enterprises as well as SMBs are prioritizing cloud migration and cloud-first policies and spending more on cloud services than ever before.  

In the current economic climate, businesses are leveraging the power of cloud computing due to its ease of access, economy and scalability. The advantages of the cloud have proven to be especially significant as businesses across the globe have had to make organization-wide transitions to remote work in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak. 

With the rapid proliferation of the Microsoft Cloud MSPs and IT professionals are struggling to keep track of changes that can create security issues, file proliferation, and “bloat” in the cloud environment.
