Migrate to Azure

What it Means, Why it Matters, Tools, and Best Practices.

Why should you migrate to Azure?

While Microsoft Azure cloud services offer significant benefits to developers and IT professionals, organizations seeking to migrate to Azure face certain challenges. Cloud data migration can be a resource-intensive endeavor that can easily strain IT budgets and hinder the performance of source databases. Security of sensitive data like customer information, financial records and business plans is also an issue as organizations migrate to Azure or any other cloud platform. And at a time when nearly every business function seems to need support from IT, organizations must find migration software or a data migration tool that won't add significant burden to IT teams or require excessive coding.

For many organizations planning to migrate to Azure, Qlik is the solution of choice for simplifying data migration and accelerating a move to the cloud.
