A Recent Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study by Forrester Consulting outlines the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by shifting some or all their management and operations from on premises, hosted, and outsourced implementations to Azure’s infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering.
A few enterprises that migrated/ re-architected workloads from on-premises to IaaS were interviewed and the findings are documented in this study. The following risk-adjusted quantified benefits were measured over a five-year investment period was noted:
- Data center reduction of 50% to 73%, leading to cost savings of $12 million.
- Annual reduction between 33% and 83% in IT outsourcing needs achieved , leading to $9.8 million in cost savings.
- New sales leading to $1.7 million in new income from improved processes, global reach,and better customer service
