Migrate Applications to Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Services
This engagement helps customers assess, prioritize and begin migrating existing virtualized applications. To provide value within an expedited timeframe, this engagement prioritizes the migration of applications that do not require significant re-architecting or code modifications. The following Microsoft Azure Service offerings are included within this engagement: SQL Server on Azure IaaS, Azure Active Directory Premium, overall application migration, and migration from Amazon Web Services (AWS) or other competitive products.
Implementing Develop and Test Scenarios with Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines
