This migration to Azure service is well suited to organisations that are looking to transform their On-Premises Architecture to the Azure Cloud.

Cloud migration and modernization are ongoing processes that need considerable organizational change management across people, processes and technology.

By taking such a comprehensive strategy will not only guarantee that your business achieves new benefits but enable efficiency, agility and scale once your workloads are operating on the Azure Cloud.

As part of this exercise, the teams at Cloud 9ine Consulting will:

Migrate your existing workload into the Azure cloud in three stages:

The first Planning phase will entail creating a strategy, assessing the environment and successfully communicating with stakeholders to ensure that the execution roadmap is understood.
