Current events have dramatically changed the way we work, the way we deliver our products and services, and the daily lives of our employees. The global pandemic has forced the hand of many companies and turned the “comfortable to do” tasks of the future into immediate necessities.
In these uncertain times, it is vital to make sure you have the right infrastructure and tools, keep costs where you need them, and that your increasingly digital operations are secure. The cloud is an invaluable resource; whether you are just starting out or want to expand your cloud service portfolio. Nigel Frank International together with industry experts and other MVPs have put together expert advice to help your business make the most of the clouds.
In this publication, I have addressed the following issues:
- Cost savings – eight tools to optimize Azure spending
- How can companies reduce their costs right now?
- How difficult can companies use Microsoft Azure to reduce their spending?

- What advice would you give to groups that now work 100% remotely? What tips can you give to keep morale high?
- Growing scale – how companies can achieve more by thinking about servers for less
- What advice could you give to those industries whose demand for services has increased to meet that demand? What techniques can they implement?
- Business continuity
- Which industries will not be affected by COVID-19?
