There are two main reasons why companies move to the cloud: economies of scale and global reach. Large cloud vendors can set up hardware and computing power in bulk to offer to enterprises as a service at a substantially lower cost, and without geographical restrictions, labour costs for creating, deploying, and maintaining resources can be optimised. 

Despite the plethora of benefits, IT leaders still face a number of challenges with cloud adoption, such as the type of model best suited for each business, costs and risks, and the length of time for migration. 

This whitepaper gives you the tools to assess these challenges and compares the cost-effectiveness of different infrastructure options to best inform your next steps.
