As the complexity of cloud services increases, it’s important to understand the basics. Many myths and preconceptions exist about the pros and cons of moving to the cloud. Two that we discovered included:

- The cloud is more hype than a real strategy companies are adopting.

ASUG conducted research sponsored by Microsoft in 2018 to examine potential concerns specifically related to the public cloud. Which beliefs are true, and which ones might be under- or overestimated? The data we discovered busts five myths, which we’ve explored and explained in this white paper.
