Nest Investments turned to the Azure cloud platform to deliver disaster recovery services to its operating companies across the Middle East and North Africa. The choice follows a strategic decision to move to the cloud, following successful use of Office 365 at one of its offices. Meanwhile, the company is planning to roll out Office 365 across the rest of the region. The company not only benefits from improved business processes, but the cost and operational savings from Office 365 are also significant: estimated to be about 50 percent. The savings the company has achieved are being reinvested back into its IT budget. This enables nest investments to focus its energies on other business-enhancing activities.
