"According to Gartner, Microsoft Azure is gaining ground on Amazon Web Services in the cloud infrastructure market," says Raju Chekuri, President and CEO of NetEnrich. "We're not surprised to hear that, as demand for Azure among our partners and end clients is growing rapidly. Tied to this is the demand for value-added assessment, migration and management services for Azure, and that's where we come in. We responded to this demand in 2016 by adding to our senior leadership team and launching new services, including Azure Cloud Readiness to help partners and end clients move quickly and thoughtfully to the cloud.
