The recurring need to upgrade your data warehouse to the latest version of SQL Server or faster, newer hardware is always around the corner - why not make this next move the last time? Companies are migrating their data solutions to the Azure cloud to take advantage of the Azure Data Services and running on Platform as a Service offerings where they never manage infrastructure or software versioning again.
No more hardware upgrades, no more Operating System and SQL Server patching, and you’re always on the latest version of SQL Server. With the added time savings, you can focus on things that add real value to your business like integrating new data sources, adding new data visualization capabilities, or tackling that machine learning, IoT, or artificial intelligence project you’ve been putting off.
Migrating your on-premise SQL Server DW and ETL solutions to Azure is just the tip of the iceberg. The innovation and feature-rich opportunities in Azure can move your BI and reporting onto PaaS as well, and your platform becomes nearly future proof with an on-ramp to a full, modern data platform architecture. From up in the cloud, many of the technical barriers that make IoT, Big Data, and Artificial Intelligence solutions challenging to implement are dramatically reduced, or even eliminated. We'll help you understand the dynamic landscape of Cloud Scale Analytics.
