How Do I Approach Cloud Migration?

Your migration could require you to run parallel and iterative migration processes as you progressively move your applications and workloads to the cloud.

“One of our big objectives was to eliminate $3 million in capital costs over about three years, and to reduce our operating costs by approximately the same amount. At the same time, we wanted to improve our quality of service. With Azure, we’re confident that we’ll meet those goals.”

Why Migrate Now?

At first glance migration may seem like a technical decision, but at its core this is a business decision. Ultimately, it begs a fundamental question: what’s driving your business to migrate to the cloud, and why now? The benefits of cloud are universal—reduced running costs, faster modernization capabilities, and increased security.
