Company news: Avanad, a Microsoft solutions provider, today launched a new platform to help businesses build an AI-ready digital core and unlock funds to reinvest in innovation.

With the exponential growth of cloud consumption, the digital core of the enterprise is rapidly changing with remarkable agility and flexibility. At the same time, many companies are struggling to realize the full value of their cloud journey as increased consumption creates redundancy, technical debt and hidden costs for legacy applications. Over time, this leads to an environment that becomes burdensome and consumes resources that could be better spent developing new innovative capabilities such as artificial intelligence.

Avanade Cloud Impact can also provide information on increasing the cost of data egress, application redesign options, and achieving 50 percent cloud cost savings while determining sustainability benefits, without requiring code changes.

Andrew Stahl, Regional Head of Regional Programs and Infrastructure Solutions, Avanad Australia, said: In today’s business environment, artificial intelligence is no longer around the corner. It’s here to stay, bringing with it several key considerations, including cloud flexibility, security, and cost efficiency.
