Many organizations have migrated from a traditional on-premise Microsoft Office deployment to one that leverages the Microsoft Azure Cloud, which gives users access to their data and business applications anywhere, at any time. The determination of whether or not to migrate is typically made by an IT decision maker: CTO, CIO or senior executive in the IT department. These executives are “paying the bills” and likely held accountable for IT spend, so shifting one of the organization’s largest expenditures from a capital expense to an operation expense is appealing. The actual execution of the migration, however, begins and ends with the IT team, which is usually comprised of a manager and IT administrators.
