Partners vital for businesses' cloud transformationEven the largest public cloud providers such as Microsoft, Amazon and Google are dependent on their so-called ecosystems, which include regional partners with specific knowledge on certain business processes and best practices. Regional experts allow these global cloud providers to reach customers they wouldn't be able to reach on their own. Nordcloud represents these three giants (Amazon, Microsoft, Google) in Europe, specializing in large businesses' cloud infrastructure, cloud capacity and managed service solutions. Last week Microsoft held a Cloud & Hosting 2017 Summit in Bellevue, Washington for partners worldwide. Microsoft's perception of the cloud market is very similar to Nordcloud's; customers are leaning heavily towards service providers, who can run the whole stack for them - including managed services around DevOps, end-to-end application management, and proactive capacity planning. Nordcloud's CEO Esa Kinnunen was interviewed by Microsoft at the summit, and Esa presented Nordcloud's Go-To-Market model to the audience, consisting mainly of other Microsoft partners. Nordcloud's way of speeding up companies' digital transformation with continuous delivery & increasing developer productivity seemed to resonate very well with the audience. Microsoft's Azure business is on a rapid growth, resulting in a 93% revenue growth last year. Among our customers, interest towards Azure Cloud solutions has been steadily growing, whether talking about hybrid, or fully public cloud solutions. If you're interested in hearing more about Nordcloud's Microsoft Azure solutions, please don't hesitate to contact us. When cloud solutions might be a thing of the future for some, for Microsoft & Nordcloud they have been a part of our everyday lives for years now and this can be seen in our expertise - whether your IT infrastructure should be lifted to the cloud partially, or as a whole.
