FLEXspend for Unitrends: Future-Proof Your IT Investments

“Change is the only thing that is constant.” — Heraclitus

Today, the business world and the technologies that drive it are undergoing rapid changes due to digital transformation, remote and hybrid work, changing customer expectations, cyberthreats, and data storage and management challenges. As a result, organizations of all sizes must keep pace with a constantly evolving business landscape and IT requirements to stay relevant and competitive.

One common outcome of digital transformation is the migration of mission-critical workloads and applications from on-prem to cloud platforms. For example, many businesses across verticals are moving on-premises IT workloads and other critical business operations to cloud platforms like Microsoft Azure or migrating on-premises Microsoft Exchange Server to cloud-based Microsoft 365.

According to the Google Cloud Brand Pulse Survey, Q4 2022, over 40% of business leaders said they plan to increase the use of cloud-based products and services due to the current macroeconomic conditions. In the survey, more than 30% of cloud leaders also said they are shifting from legacy enterprise software to cloud-based tools, and another 32.8% revealed that they plan to migrate on-premises workloads to the cloud.

As businesses shift their mission-critical workloads from on-premises data centers to cloud environments or vice versa, they must also change data protection technologies designed for that environment. This often translates into additional costs and complexity associated with data migration and security. That’s where FLEXspend for Unitrends can be a game changer for your business.
