ISVs can help focus on success by choosing the right Azure cloud migration partner

Despite the potential increase in customer revenues, Independent Software Vendors can be apprehensive when considering cloud migration. However, the right partner can make the cloud migration process seamless. Spanish Point Technologies can develop a migration plan which allows ISVs to focus on growing with confidence.

The cloud opportunity is huge for ISVs. Moving existing desktop and web applications to a SAAS model increases the scale and reach of your solutions.  In a recent Statista report, the global spend on IT cloud services in 2018 was over $182 billion, with 66% of this revenue coming from software as a service (Statistica 2020). Cloud platforms, such as Microsoft Azure, facilitate the adaptation of your successful solutions to a SAAS model, gaining access to a world of new customers. While the rewards are significant, some ISVs can find the process of moving their applications to the cloud daunting, risky and expensive.

Microsoft Azure is an excellent option for ISVs seeking to enhance their solutions. Gaining access to the benefits of Azure can be accelerated through partnership.

Where do I begin? Will the costs be too high? How do I approach the Azure migration? These are all questions software vendors will ask. A cloud partner can guide ISVs – listening to their requirements, minimizing risk and explaining to them the right cloud opportunities. As an experienced cloud migration partner, Spanish Point Technologies can provide ISVs with many benefits and opportunities both through its SMART AIM program and ongoing support.

SMART AIM? Gain access to a straightforward Azure migration plan

One of the best ways for ISVs to start transitioning their solutions to the cloud is through SMART AIM. A migration roadmap developed in partnership with Spanish Point Technologies, this set of tools and processes effectively accelerates the ISV migration to the cloud. ISV’s applications and/or solutions are analysed to draw up the optimal plan for migration taking into account business requirements.

Business risks are significantly reduced

Keeping your business on track is important. When you have an established solution with satisfied customers, it may seem a risk to make changes to your offering. Your Azure partner will be able to help you to migrate to the cloud while avoiding long downtimes, security issues or poor experiences for your customers. By implementing changes in phases that work for your business, ISVs can move to the cloud with more confidence and at a pace that works. Spanish Point Technologies works closely with ISVs to develop a migration roadmap that is manageable for your business.

ISVs can access Azure cost savings

The Spanish Point Technologies team have expertise in Azure and can offer advice to ISVs on how to get the most from the platform. Save money and development time spent on building and maintaining software by leveraging valuable tools and APIs provided through Azure IaaS and PaaS features. Instead prioritise project resources and funding to invest into the features that will improve your solution and customer experience, which will in turn drive revenues.
