    58. 58. Why in the cloud? As the workforce continues to become more remote, more mobile, and more reliant on multiple devices... the cloud is the right architecture to reduce complexity and to deliver services to employees anywhere, anytime, and on any device.
    59. 59. SMB organizations focused on business growth should ask this question first: Why in the cloud? “Can we run this in the cloud?” Then look for reasons why a workload should remain on-premises.
    60. 60. Why in the cloud? A smaller business can now afford the benefits of enterprise-class IT infrastructure and the latest versions of software applications without the traditional financial hurdles (or roadblocks). Removing the large upfront capital expenditures in favor of the predictability of paying on a metered or per-user basis changes an SMB’s financial statement in good ways.

Now we can work on other projects that bring more value to the company.” “We currently have a lot of different license costs, and it can be hard to keep track of them. With Office365 we have very transparent cost model.” “With Office365 we have not had any downtime. That is very different than when we were running Exchange on premises.” “The disaster recovery capabilities are vastly superior to what we could have provided on our own.” “When you have large clients, you don’t want to have fragile systems and outages that can negatively influence how they view you.” Quotes from Forrester Interviews
