Cloud-based applications are successful for the same reason as cloud storage solutions - widely available, scalable and low-cost hosting. Microsoft Azure, with a dominant market position in both server and desktop systems, combines all these characteristics in one package to deliver a strong and consistent business focus. Azure also brings unparalleled flexibility to application migrations and operations. The modular hosting environment allows businesses to rapidly circumvent internal IT and process barriers to rapidly execute on business vision when new opportunities arise.
With the right application migration process, organizations can shift mission-critical apps to Azure with zero down-time and much higher operating efficiencies than on-premises hosting.
Azure combines Microsoft’s legendary business focus with the power of the cloud. Engineers who have spent their entire careers working with Microsoft software are immediately at home with the concepts and technologies behind Azure, while the economies of scale supporting the system offer major advantages for executives considering the financial impacts of such environments.
Some of the oft-cited Azure’s advantages include:
Ease of re-engineering applications - Azure Virtual Machines offer a building-block approach to application services that break systems up into easy-to-adjust components, making future or current re-engineering efforts simple.
Simplified application management - Azure’s Kubernetes Services containerizes your applications to enable rapid scaling alongside continuous integration models and cluster capacity to allow administrators superior application management tools.
Unified application and data hosting - Azure’s Data Factory makes it simple to host applications and data in the same cloud structure, simplifying data access and processing at the same time as it reduces cost-per-gigabyte for storage.
Familiar platforms and services - Common Microsoft services such as Active Directory and Windows Identity Foundation offer ready-made solutions to issues of identity management and access control that integrate directly with existing on-prem or private cloud systems. Even the IT staff are already familiar with them.
Unified migration platform - Azure’s Migrate feature offers a centralized hub that makes it easy to assess and automatically migrate your current servers and applications through a single portal, greatly reducing IT manpower requirements for application migrations.
Azure offers many tools and robust documentation to help make application migrations easy. But most businesses will only perform the process once or a handful of times, meaning they have little experience in-house with the details of performing a successful migration. That’s why seeking out an established and experienced application migration consultant, such as Trianz, makes sense for your business.
Migrating applications to Azure offers companies many advantages, but the process requires careful planning and effective execution at every step. Relying on a trusted Microsoft partner such as Trianz can ensure that your organization does not miss a beat during even the most complex application migration process.

Connecting more people to data has become imperative for organizations worldwide. In Top Trends in Data & Analytics for 2022, Gartner stated, “Connections between diverse and distributed data and people create truly impactful insight and innovation. These connections are critical to assisting humans and machines in making quicker, more accurate, trustworthy, and contextualized decisions while considering an increasing number of factors, stakeholders, and data sources.”Explore
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
