It's not necessarily the high cost but the uncertainty of expenses that hinders companies from migrating to the Azure cloud. To address this, cost-conscious organizations should create a detailed budget for Azure migration, which helps them predict and manage expenses effectively. Once on Azure, they need to continuously monitor cloud service usage, ensure efficient resource utilization, and employ Azure's cost control tools. Adopting this strategy reduces the uncertainty surrounding cloud migration costs and enables better financial management.

Choosing experienced specialists is key to effective cloud migration. Unlike less qualified teams, who often make up reasons for mid-migration failures, leading to extra expenses and delays, seasoned experts expect and adeptly handle complexities such as post-migration cost spikes, uncontrolled spending, sudden charges caused by making changes in production and the pitfalls of rapid, single-phase migration. The right expertise transforms potential challenges into smooth transitions, ensuring cost-effective and timely project completion.

SaaS platforms have different customers/subscribers, or, “tenant” users, in technical terms. For B2B SaaS such tenants are often organizations. If the SaaS platform is deployed in the cloud using multitenant architecture for cost-effectiveness, the platform’s customers use the same databases and storages as others. SaaS platform owners have to prevent user access from one customer to another customer's private information. The solution is the implementation of multi-tenant SaaS identity and access control management.

Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) is a cloud computing service from a cloud service provider where you receive access to compute, storage, and networking resources on-demand and are charged for what you use. Additional services include billing management, logging, monitoring, storage resiliency, and security. In this model, the IaaS provider maintains the physical infrastructure, so you can concentrate on the development of your core business software. Businesses use the IaaS to migrate some or all of their use of on-premises or collocated data center infrastructure to the public, private, or hybrid clouds to become more agile, and innovate faster.
