Explore the benefits, costs, and considerations associated with deploying Azure SQL managed databases in this Forrester Consulting study commissioned by Microsoft.

Four customers were interviewed about their experience migrating their on-premises SQL Server workloads to the cloud using Azure SQL managed databases, which include Azure SQL Managed Instance and Azure SQL Database. In addition to a projected return on investment of 238 percent over three years, the analysis showed that a representative organization based on the interviewed customers also experienced: 

  • A 25 percent increase in IT productivity. 
  • A 40 percent improvement in productivity for database administrators. 
  • Cost benefits, including avoiding on-premises infrastructure costs of $5.4 million related to computing power, storage, networks, and datacenter space and energy.
