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 A trip to grab groceries has been replaced by a doorstep drop-off -- from the guy that used to deliver the now defunct newspaper.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.

What Is an SQL Query Engine? SQL query engine architecture was designed to allow users to query a variety of data sources within a single query. While early SQL-based query engines such as Apache Hive allowed analysts to cut through the clutter of analytical data, they found running SQL analytics on multi-petabyte data warehouses to be a time-intensive process that was difficult to visualize and hard to scale.Explore

Engage Your Workforce with a Modern Employee Intranet Solution The employee intranet has changed significantly since it was first introduced in the early 1990s. What started as HTML-based static portals have now evolved into intuitive communication tools complete with search engines, user profiles, blogs, event planners, and more.

Adopting emerging cloud technologies, consolidating resources, and improving processes is the key. “IT no longer just supports corporate operations as it traditionally has but is fully participating in business value delivery. Not only does this shift IT from a back-office role to the front of business, but it also changes the source of funding from an overhead expense that is maintained, monitored, and sometimes cut, to the thing that drives revenue,” said John-David Lovelock, research vice president at Gartner.Explore
Deliver Powerful Insights Instantaneously with Federated Queries - No Matter Where Your Data Resides The concept of federated queries isn’t new. Facebook PrestoDB popularized the idea of distributed structured query language (SQL) query engines in 2013. Over the years, AWS, Google, Microsoft, and many others in the industry have accelerated the adoption of a distributed query engine model within their products. For example, AWS developed Amazon Athena on top of the Presto code base, while Google’s BigQuery is based on Cloud SQL.Explore
What is Unstructured Data? Almost 80% of the data that enterprises and organizations collect is unstructured - data without a set record format or structure. Unstructured data includes data such as emails, web pages, PDFs, documents, customer feedback, in-app reviews, social media, video files, audio files, and images.Explore
