Public cloud adoption is gaining momentum. And while many companies had already begun to embark on their digital transformations ahead of the pandemic, COVID-19 certainly accelerated this transition in 2020. In fact, in a recent study, more than eight in 10 organizations said the cloud is more important today than it was one year ago.
It’s worth noting that the complexity of the cloud environment is growing nearly as fast as the adoption rate. Organizations looking to move workloads such as their enterprise resource planning (ERP) software to the cloud face a growing number of options when it comes to selecting a cloud provider. And each cloud provider offers a variety of configurations, features, and tools.
