What is Azure migration?
Powerful cloud computing services such as Microsoft Azure are essential to large businesses or organisations who carry out their operations online.
Microsoft Azure is designed for developers to build, deploy and manage Microsoft applications across their global network of managed data centres and system infrastructure.
Migration is the process of moving data, databases and software to a secure cloud environment. This can include moving on-premises databases to Azure or migration from virtual machines.

Our Azure Migration Services
From assessing the feasibility and scale of migration to planning a comprehensive Azure migration strategy, our five-step cloud migration process helps to create a robust and cost-efficient roadmap that sees the Azure migration process through to completion.
Step One: Assess
- We look at the Why, What and How approach to simplify the planning phase
- By evaluating the benefits of moving to the Microsoft Azure cloud, we create KPIs to aim for and measure migration success against
Step Two: Costs TCO
- Implementing a TCO (total cost of ownership) analysis helps to assess initial cost over migration versus longer-term savings
- We identify whether it’s most effective to take a phased approach or carry out a full cloud migration
Step Three: Security
- We help to define new security protocols and establish what your business is responsible for managing
- We can then roll out new and updated security policies and processes across your business
Step Four: Planning
- We develop a tailored roadmap for cloud migration and review the different approaches and requirements needed to implement the roadmap
Step Five: Action
- It’s time to implement the plans with best-practice project management tools
- Finally, we can measure our KPIs and tracking milestones on the cloud migration roadmap
