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 A trip to grab groceries has been replaced by a doorstep drop-off -- from the guy that used to deliver the now defunct newspaper.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.
But to realize digital transformation, leaders must consider the cloud migration costs and benefits for each application. And develop a prioritized list of workloads to migrate to Azure.
Some do this in house. Others turn to trusted advisors. But to enable innovation and reinvent customer interactions, all must consider the following application migrations guidelines:
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.

Since the dawn of business, users have looked for three main components when it comes to data: Search | Secure| Share. Now let's talk about the evolution of data over the years. It's a story in itself if one pays attention. Back then, applications were created to handle a set of processes/tasks. These processes/tasks, when grouped logically, became a sub-function, a set of sub-functions constituted a function, and a set of functions made up an enterprise. Phase 1 – Data-AwareExplore
Practitioners in the data realm have gone through various acronyms over the years. It all started with "Decision Support Systems" followed by "Data Warehouse", "Data Marts", "Data Lakes", "Data Fabric", and "Data Mesh", amongst storage formats of RDBMS, MPP, Big Data, Blob, Parquet, Iceberg, etc., and data collection, consolidation, and consumption patterns that have evolved with technology.Explore
Enterprises have, over time, invested in a variety of tools, technologies, and methodologies to solve the critical problem of managing enterprise data assets, be it data catalogs, security policies associated with data access, or encryption/decryption of data (in motion and at rest) or identification of PII, PHI, PCI data. As technology has evolved, so have the tools and methodologies to implement the same. However, the issue continues to persist. There are a variety of reasons for the same:Explore
Finding Hidden Patterns and Correlations Innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and natural language processing (NLP) are transforming the way we approach data analytics. AI, ML and NLP are categorized under the umbrella term of “cognitive analytics,” which is an approach that leverages human-like computer intelligence to identify hidden patterns and correlations in data.Explore
