30 May Benefits of ACP Assessments
Many businesses are interested in modernising and simplifying their IT infrastructure through hybrid public cloud. Often businesses have heard about Microsoft Azure and think it could help, but don’t progress any further.
We have found this usually comes down to 4 main reasons.
- Lack of clarity as to what it will cost to transition workloads to Azure Public Cloud.
- Not being sure of the comparative ongoing costs of running the workload On-Premise versus hosted in the Cloud.
- Shortage of internal skills for transitioning to Azure Public Cloud.
- Concerns over the ability to support their Azure deployment once it’s in place and optimise it to achieve both operational and financial efficiency.
Thankfully, these questions and concerns can be addressed with an Azure Cloud Physics Assessment, otherwise known as an ACP Assessment. An ACP Assessment does this in 3 ways:
- It provides businesses with an understanding of costs by workload mapping and pricing using a SaaS based tool to provide costs modelling over a thirty day period.
- It assists businesses with Azure Transition Services (ATS) to transition from On-Premise to Public Cloud.
- It provides businesses with ongoing support through Azure Care Services (ACS).
