An interesting article, bound to stimulate some controversy, has just been published on the Forbes Tech site.
The author, Bob Evans ex-VP of Strategic Communications at SAP and Chief Communications Officer at Oracle from 2012 to 2016, argues that contrary to accepted wisdom Microsoft Azure, not Amazon Web Services, is the ‘biggest and best dog’ in the cloud as far as corporate customers are concerned.
While being a huge admirer of the AWS success story over the last decade, Evans argues that Microsoft Azure now offers corporate customers more cloud innovation and drives more business value than Amazon. Microsoft’s Commercial Cloud products and services have become ‘indispensable digital-transformation enablers for businesses in every industry in every region across the globe’ (see our previous blog post on the role of the Cloud in Digital Transformation).
