    From security advantages and organizational control of data to ease of use and increased agility, the Microsoft Cloud with cloud-based tools can help your mission. In fact, by transitioning to a cloud environment, you can take advantage of:

    1.      Cloud-based applications are here to stay

    With over 70% of organizations hosting at least one of their applications in the cloud in 2015, the cloud market expected to surpass $500 billion by 2020!

    2.      Security Comes Standard

    As cloud technology improves, security fears lessen. In a survey of enterprise IT managers, security is no longer ranked as the #1 concern when it comes to cloud computing.

    One of the biggest advantages of moving to the public cloud is the security team that comes with it. By moving to an enterprise-level public cloud, you’ll experience:

    Scale: A public cloud will always be large enough to store and secure your data

    Intelligence: Public clouds monitor for millions of threats. As soon as one is detected on one customer tenant, the cloud provider can mitigate the attack across all other tenants.

    Automation: Less human touch results in fewer mistakes and fewer opportunities for security breaches or insider threats.

    3.      Move At Your Own Pace

    Cloud migration does not need to happen all at once, and it’s recommended to migrate to the cloud over time with a hybrid approach—the combination of an on-premises, private cloud and third-party, public cloud services.

    For example; on average in 2015, businesses were simultaneously experimenting with and running data on 3 public clouds and 3 private clouds.

    4.      Using the Cloud Doesn’t Mean New Tools

    Moving to a cloud-based solution doesn’t have to mean retraining employees. Many solutions allow you to use the same applications your employees are used to, with access to files anywhere online.

    5.      The Sky is The Limit

    Cloud adopters see various benefits from their technology, although businesses’ top-cited benefits in 2016 include:
