The Data#3 set of Azure Solutions supports organisations through the lifecycle of Azure adoption, from Azure health checks, cost management, migration, to managed services and advanced data services.
## Understanding the Azure Cloud Journey
No two cloud journeys are identical, with many choices depending on compliance obligations, risk profile, existing infrastructure investment, availability of skills, and organisational culture.
Data#3’s cloud experts recognise that understanding your organisation’s cloud profile is essential to knowing what workloads to move to the cloud, which cloud service is right, and when to transition. Our consultants are also skilled at managing the human change that comes with adopting new cloud workloads.
Data#3 uses a five-step approach to assess your application inventory prior to considering workload transition to Azure. The five Rs are rehost, refactor, rearchitect, rebuild or replace. If you’re already using Azure, it’s most likely that you’ve used the rehost approach with your IaaS lift-and-shift into Azure. The next step in your cloud adoption is to modernise your rehosted applications.
