Migrating Enterprise Applications to Microsoft Azure
Mihai Tătăran, Avaelgo
Migrating applications is a subject that can strike fear into the heart of even the most seasoned IT technical decision-maker. There are plenty of stories of poorly executed migrations, and they often cost businesses in terms of time and money. As enterprise organizations consider migrating applications out of their own data centers and into the cloud, the level of anxiety can grow exponentially.
To take full advantage of the cloud, applications often must be completely rearchitected. While this can be a complex undertaking, the long-term gains usually far outweigh the short-term pains.
In Microsoft Azure, the availability of Well-Architected Framework, a set of Azure best practices to help build and deliver well-architected solutions on top of the Azure platform, and Cloud-Native Apps to deliver faster, accurate services on a timely basis, are a compelling argument for refactoring.
Join Mihai Tataran’s session to learn more on how Avaelgo successfully migrates enterprise applications to Microsoft Azure.
