Drive Value and Cost Savings Throughout the Cloud Investment Lifecycle

Microsoft Advisory Services

According to Gartner ( link), over 30% of any new software and cloud expenditure will be unused through 2022.

At the same time, Microsoft Office 365"s commercial revenue growth ( link) is 21%...

...and Azure's revenue growth is 48%.

This is not surprising, as many organizations are incentivized to sign up to comprehensive suites of cloud services, where utilization is still not optimal, and the ongoing consumption management remains a challenge.

The rapid release cadence in the cloud suites and products has been adding to the already complex Microsoft licensing landscape, which in turn makes the jobs of multiple business areas including ITAM practitioners, IT Executives and budget holders more challenging.

In parallel, software expenditure overall is largely steady. While elements of the software market are negatively impacted ( link to SAP), others continue to grow such as Office 365 Commercial revenue ( link to Microsoft), which increased 21%.

Software (including SaaS) expenditure per employee represents on average 25% ( link to Gartner) of IT spend at over $3,800 per year; include public cloud and that grows to almost $4,800 per year. Much of this expenditure delivers value, but what proportion could be optimized?

With over 30 years of commercial and technical Microsoft experience, SoftwareONE’s Microsoft Advisory Services are designed to help organizations navigate their way through this complexity and ensure they maximize the value of their Microsoft investments.
