1Microsoft commissioned the Enterprise Strategy Group to conduct a study in July 2022 on the economic validation of migrating on-premises workloads to Azure Database for PostgreSQL. ESG validated that organisations have reported significant operational savings, have reduced risk, and have improved the speed of application development and delivery when migrating to Azure Database for PostgreSQL. ESG’s modelled scenario predicts that a medium-sized development organization with 18 developers and 145 general purpose and burstable PostgreSQL instances could realise savings of up to 62 percent over a three-year period, including an 84 percent lower cost of administration and up to a 164 percent return on investment (ROI). In addition, they could also realise improved revenue of $11.6 million with earlier release of products, improved application uptime, and improved product quality by using Azure Database for PostgreSQL.
