There are three key benefits realized when you leverage data platform modernization: space, maintenance, and scalability. Space because you no longer need to dedicate rooms to servers. Maintenance because you can take the burden off your internal team and instead rely on a cloud-based platform that’s maintained by someone else. And scalability because using data platforms such as Azure and SQL means you can flex as your business grows.
All of these advantages add up to significant cost savings for you, while allowing your staff to focus more on strategic priorities. And one other benefit that isn’t spoken of often enough? By pushing your data to the cloud, machine learning can start to recognize when certain types of data are requested more often than others and tune itself for better reporting. Better reporting means better decision-making for you. With data platform modernization, it’s a win-win.
