You know the talk out there, everyone is moving to the cloud and people are looking at Azure to get there. But many have concerns with going to the cloud or the unknown things around Azure. That’s why we created this blog series. Today, I want to tell you why I think it’s critical to help your development teams leverage Azure, which will help you as an organization.
First, there are 3 things Azure brings to you as a business and for your teams:
1. You can learn new things quickly.
You can go into Azure, turn on a few features and work with them to try them out. On the contrary, to learn to work and interact with Hadoop infrastructure, for example, you’d have to take the time to set up a bunch of clusters. If your team is looking to take advantage of something new like containers or NoSQL, they can try these out in Azure without investing in infrastructure.
2. It’s good prep for when you want to go to the cloud.
Bottom line – it’s different in the cloud. Whether you plan to move to the cloud soon or sometime in the future, you’re going to need to understand how subscriptions and components work and gain knowledge in dealing with interactions and how to work in the cloud. Your team having a better understanding is key to your ability to successfully and effectively make the move.
3. Breeding creativity within your IT organization and development teams.
Creativity can lead to new business opportunities and improvements to your business. Giving your team the opportunity to jump in and work with some tools, can give them the ability to come up with some new ideas.
The risk, as always, is cost. No one wants to spend money. But here are 3 things you can do to help manage your risk and cost:
