Wondering how to get the most from your Azure migration? Make the move to the cloud gives you the ability to manage your IT systems more effectively, saving time and costs, increasing agility, and taking advantage of Microsoft’s updated technology. Azure can be used across numerous operating systems, databases, languages, tools and devices, catering to businesses of all sizes.

While the benefits make this platform an excellent investment, moving to a cloud-based system can seem incredibly daunting. In this short guide, we share some tips that will make your Azure migration easier.

Preparing for Azure Migration

To make sure that your Azure migration goes as smoothly as possible, here are some tips to keep in mind before getting started.

1. Plan and prepare carefully

Moving to Azure takes planning and preparation. Like any migration, trying to make the move without any type of planning can end up doing a great deal of harm. This is especially true if your current environment is not prepared to make the move to the cloud. One of the most effective ways to prepare for the migration is to take a step-by-step approach. This will reduce the chance of problems along the way while ensuring that your migration to the cloud is as stress-free and efficient as possible.

2. Consider your requirements

You will also need to think about your specific requirements. These will differ from one business to the other. Typical requirements could range from on-premise workloads to compliance, data transfer rates, recovery time, user access, and numerous other factors. The clearer and more defined your requirements are, the easier it will be to plan your migration.

3. Get professional help

Migration can be challenging, and more than a little stressful. Seeking help from an experienced ITaaS expert will help take a great deal of stress out of migrating to the cloud, allowing you to focus on your day-to-day operations. Your migration will be done in accordance with your specific requirements, making sure that your new systems are adapted to your needs. An experienced Azure specialist will also be able to plan and implement the migration according to international best practices. This minimises the risks and ensures a more streamlined migration.
