The Case for Microsoft Azure Arc
Microsoft Azure Arc serves as a bridge that extends the Azure platform so users can build applications and services with the flexibility to run across datacenters, edge, and multi-cloud environments. Users can develop cloud-native applications with a consistent development, operations, and security model. Azure Arc runs on new and existing hardware, virtualization, and Kubernetes platforms, IoT devices and integrated systems.
In a study commissioned this year entitled The Total Economic Impact of Microsoft Azure Arc for Security and Governance, Forrester Consulting interviewed four organizations with experience using Azure Arc. The organizations serve global markets in manufacturing, energy, and financial services. According to the collected data, Azure Arc showed:
- A 206 percent return on investment over three years with payback in less than six months
- A 30 percent gain in productivity for IT operations employees
- An 80 percent reduction in risk of data breach from unsecured infrastructure
- A 15 percent reduction in spending on third-party tools, saving on expenses
