The Data Migration Assessment – Cloud for Non-Profit provides Not-For-Profit organisations a practical roadmap to migrate and modernise their current data estate to Azure.
Microsoft Azure is a public cloud computing platform that allows you to quickly deploy infrastructure and services to support applications. The Azure platform provides a range of cloud services to support various workloads, including services for computing, data management, analytics, storage, and networking. Cloud infrastructure can be easily scaled up and down to meet your needs, ensuring you only pay for what you need and use. Microsoft Cloud for Nonprofit aligns the capabilities of Microsoft 365, Power Platform, Dynamics 365, Azure, and LinkedIn to address common nonprofit scenarios —all based on the Nonprofit Common Data Model to unite disparate data sources.
Data is at the heart of most applications, so having a robust data platform is imperative. Hosting the data on premises can be expensive due to the cost of keeping the platform current. Moving the data to the cloud allows organisations to leverage a platform that offers security, flexibility and scalability yet still is cost effective, a significant benefit for Not-For-Profit organisations (NFPs).
The Data Migration Assessment – Cloud for Non-Profit service gives NFPs an introduction to the Azure data platform and the NFP Common Data Model, an analysis of their on-premises data footprint and a roadmap for how to move the data platform to the cloud effectively. As part of the assessment, we review your current environment, evaluate the benefits of migrating and modernising data workloads to the cloud, look at various options to host the data in the cloud, validate the correct Azure solutions that match your organisation’s requirements, and draft a roadmap for the migration highlighting the target architecture and a suitable migration process.
