Kristina Moln-Page, Head of Finance, ASOS
"I see cloud economics as our route of opportunity. We spend a lot of money in the cloud, so it's one of those things that has a huge impact. Our cloud cost optimization has already saved us 25 to 40 percent."
Christian Walter, Head of Web and Collaboration, Fujitsu
"By migrating to Azure, we have more scalability, flexibility, and efficiency, along with reduced upgrade-related costs for our online presence, than when we kept it in on-premises datacenters."
Paul Clark, Director of Cloud, H&R Block
"Our monthly spend year-over-year is nearly flat, while we now have approximately 30 percent more of our total compute in the cloud. Thanks to our partnership with Microsoft, our team has learned valuable techniques and strategies to continue optimizing our spend."

"We've always been sitting on a lot of data, but we needed Azure and AI to unlock its potential and find the interesting nuggets in those billions of data points."
