“Do a mapping, what is the utilization currently, and this is where the bigger customers really see the benefits, even before they actually go to the cloud.” – Karthik Santhanam: CTO – Cloud Services – Cloud Kinetics
“We see that on an average the infrastructure costs around 31% and because the managed services take care of the security aspect also, we (AWS) have fewer and fewer security incidents per year.” Savings in infrastructure costs and reduction in security incidents simply increases productivity of your IT staff. – Nagesh Subrahmanyam: Partner Solution Architect – AWS
