To address this opportunity, Alinean analysts worked with the Azure team to create the Azure TCO Calculator, determining that in most configurations, at least 40% can be saved with SaaS, along with service level, performance and scalability improvements, making it a perfect choice in frugal times.
Using the tool, customers can assess unique opportunities and savings, obtaining a 20+ page business case analysis. The tool has been used on average in hundreds of key selling situations to help promote Azure migrations.
