At Emergent Software, we have a long history of partnering with clients to achieve their cloud transformation goals. Using the Azure Marketplace, you can easily get started working with us through our Azure Migration solution. This blog talks about that solution and what you can expect when you partner with Emergent Software.

Why migrate to Azure?

The global cloud offers a wide variety of benefits, including flexibility, rapid scaling, enhanced accessibility, and stronger security. Emergent software can help you leverage those advantages through an efficient migration to Microsoft’s Azure cloud.

Here are a few of the benefits of Azure migration.

Shift from CapEx to OpEx

Azure migration lets you shift from capital expenditures to operational expenditures, leading to significant savings and agility. Since your costs are based on usage, you only pay for what you need.

Scalability and flexibility

When you migrate to the cloud, it becomes easy to quickly add or remove resources with just a few clicks. You’ll be able to optimize your resource utilization and adapt to changing business requirements without compromising performance.

Hybrid capabilities

Azure offers seamless integration between on-premises environments and the cloud, allowing you to maintain consistency and migrate your workloads at your own pace while leveraging cloud benefits. You can extend your existing infrastructure to Azure to enable hybrid scenarios like disaster recovery, backup, and application migration.

Disaster recovery

Azure offers robust disaster recovery (DR) solutions, including site recovery and backup services. These ensure that your data and applications remain available even in the event of a catastrophic failure. You can minimize downtime and data loss with automated recovery processes.

Comprehensive security

Azure provides a comprehensive set of security tools and features to help protect your data, applications, and networks. These include advanced threat detection, encryption, identity and access management, and compliance certifications. The shared security model lets you define clear responsibilities.

AI and analytics

Azure's suite of AI and analytics services, including Machine Learning, Azure Cognitive Services, and Azure Data Analytics, enable organizations to gain insights from data and build intelligent applications. These tools help to enhance decision-making and innovation through data.

Ecosystem and marketplace

The vast ecosystem and third-party solutions and services available in Azure Marketplace can accelerate your project deployment by offering pre-built solutions and templates. You'll be able to explore a wide range of options tailored to specific industry needs and use cases.

Azure migration with Emergent Software

You’ve learned about the benefits of migrating to Microsoft Azure — but why work with us?

Custom development expertise

Cloud migration is often mistakenly viewed as a “lift and shift” project. You simply take your existing workloads and move them to the cloud. But this strategy leads to poorer security, availability, and performance.

Emergent’s roots as a software development company allow us to provide a more strategic type of cloud migration through expertise in cloud architecture, .NET software development, and SQL Server. Our holistic approach helps us leverage all the cloud has to offer.

Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF)

Microsoft has detailed best practices, documentation, and tools to guide and assist companies in creating a cloud strategy. This is called the Microsoft Cloud Adoption Framework (CAF) for Azure.

All of our cloud migration engagements are aligned with CAF, ensuring that best practices are being followed at every step.
