Deciding how to Migrate to Azure

While working with our customers over the years, we’ve seen a variety of great reasons to migrate to Azure. It often starts with looking for new ways to support the increasing demands of their customers by extending their data center into Microsoft Azure. Or, it could be the vision of building transformative solutions using building blocks like cognitive services for outstanding customer experiences.

It all starts with a combination of understanding what your business wants to achieve and then having the people, processes, and platform knowledge to guide you along the path that is right for your organization.

  • Backup and archival to Azure storage using tools like Azure Backup, and SQL Server backup and restore with Azure blob storage service.
  • Creation of development and test environments using Azure DevTest Labs.
  • Website migration to Microsoft Azure PaaS solutions
  • Lift and shift of applications and databases to Azure
  • Platform migration and modernization to Microsoft Azure
