4 How cloud adoption helped businesses survive Adopting remote and hybrid work models was a top priority for organizations in 2020 and presented both technical and operational challenges as the workforce shifted to accommodate the sudden changes. The urgency of disruption overcame organizational and cultural barriers to cloud adoption, driving two years' worth of digital transformation in two months. ³ Now we can focus more of our limited time and energy on driving maximum functionality, rather than the physical logistics that go with maintaining and refreshing equipment and infrastructure, and because we can scale up or down based on business or program requirements, we can be sure that we're truly paying for only what we need at any given time. Remote work. With the global workforce working from home, cloud productivity tools such as Microsoft Teams and Azure Virtual Desktop were indispensable to collaboration and operations. Security. When the global workforce went remote, the risk of data loss and cyberattacks shifted. Organizations discovered that cloud providers can deliver in-depth, multi-layered security that protects data even outside of traditional network boundaries. Resilience. As conditions changed, the flexible nature of the cloud enabled organizations to scale up and down, while built-in resilience and redundancy ensured that systems were available to serve customers, manage data, and empower employees. Scalability. When consumer activity shifted online, highly scalable cloud infrastructure helped companies avoid lost revenue and meet the surge in demand. Cost. Never was the idea of paying for what you consumed more important than in the face of significant revenue loss and uncertain cash flows. The ability of cloud to flip CAPEX to OPEX continued to be a key cost optimization strategy for many organizations. Innovation. During a time of crisis, an organization's ability to operationalize new ideas was more important than ever. The cloud enabled rapid experimentation at low cost, and put profitable services into production faster than ever. Lets work together on how you can expand on these benefits by adopting a structured approach to cloud migration and modernization. 3 2 years of digital transformation in 2 months | Microsoft, undated.
