Oracle Migration to Azure: 1-Week Assessment (UK)


Pythian can help you migrate from Oracle to the best technologies suited for your needs, including Azure SQL Database, Azure SQL Data Warehouse, and SQL Server (cloud and on-premise.)

Migrating from Oracle to Azure can provide many benefits—from lower costs, to improved performance, and the ability to integrate new technologies that drive automation and innovation.

A successful Oracle migration with no disruption requires an end-to-end approach, with a team of both Oracle and Microsoft experts - Pythian’s 24/7 global team of managed services professionals have decades of experience in these environments. We leverage our expertise to help you maximize your migration throughput and mitigate risks while providing the most fitting solution for your business.

In a week-long discovery, we will review your Oracle implementation and plan, create, and present our assessment of the work to move your workloads from Oracle to Azure/Microsoft SQL Server through the following steps:

  1. Analysis: Pythian’s seasoned Oracle DBAs use a proprietary approach to analyzing your existing Oracle database to determine the level of technical difficulty of the migration. Their analysis includes a thorough review of components and features being used, database objects, database resident code, dependencies on external objects, relative data volumes, etc.

  2. Roadmap Creation: The database migration path is then formally captured in a Database Migration Roadmap document which details the work effort including the high-level migration strategy, future state architecture, required players, areas of complexity, risk, estimated migration timelines, and required database outages.

  3. Recommendations: Pythian presents the findings through a collaborative and interactive walkthrough of the Database Migration Roadmap, readying your organization for an immediate next step.


Post discovery, we can support you through next steps, including formalizing a project plan, implementing a Proof of Concept using your actual data, planning and implementing a dry run, and performing the final migration, and provide ongoing managed services, if needed.
