Cloud Economics Assessment

Accurately assess your Azure Requirements

Manage Your Software Assets

Version 1’s Cloud Economics Assessment is a rapid comparative monetary analysis between existing on-premise workloads and Azure including readiness levels and migration pathways.

As many organisations embrace Cloud computing, acquiring Microsoft online services is becoming the new norm. Accurately assessing Azure requirements can be complex, time-consuming and result in challenges such as:

  • Failure to identify right sizing opportunities
  • Poorly optimised procurement
  • Understanding the financial and operational impact of a migration
  • How to build a business case for Azure
