If you don’t buy into digital transformation, just consider your daily routine. The bank you no longer visit, now sends balance and fraud alerts by texts. A trip to grab groceries has been replaced by a doorstep drop-off -- from the guy that used to deliver the now defunct newspaper.
And, ding-ding-ding… your drive across town has been rerouted around the dog parade that was auto-populated into your mobile notifications.
Your bank, grocery store, restaurant, newspaper, traffic cop, and local non-profit are all under attack by digital upstarts. As are your doctor, insurance agent, and governor. To survive, they’re transforming operations and communications, and embracing the cloud.
From regional to multi-national and for-profit to local government, incumbents and industry leaders are turning to flexible and scalable cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure.

A critical review of the above six items for each application under consideration will help prioritize workloads for migration to Azure.
If you can’t do this alone, consult with Trianz professionals that have years of experience with successful workload migration to the cloud, and significant Microsoft application and Azure platform expertise.
Typical Azure engagements include migration and management of .Net applications, SQL Server databases, DevOps and DevTest environments, SharePoint collaboration, Office and Exchange productivity, and big data analytics.

Putting Data to Work Recently, one of the world’s largest global shipping companies was seeking to identify new revenue opportunities; specifically, they were interested in monetizing their data by building other, related business intelligence products for different industries. Like many other businesses, they had found themselves sitting on a mountain of actionable data without any processes in place to explore or leverage said data. Their intentions were now pointed in the right direction, but what they were missing was a data monetization strategy.Explore
The Data Tide Businesses in the digital age are inundated with data as it floods in from multiple channels. This data is both a challenge to wade through and an absolute goldmine. Its tremendous potential can be harnessed to communicate meaningfully with audiences and advance an organization’s brand awareness in the public eye. The problem is, however, that raw data itself can’t tell a compelling story to most people. It needs to be woven together artfully to create a narrative that connects with a specific audience. This is where data-driven storytelling comes in.Explore
