Streamlining database migration to the cloud with new cloud-based migration services

Customers are demanding cloud-based data platform capabilities now more than ever before. In the past, it was difficult for partners to help customers move their on-premises data workloads to Azure due to limited migration tools and complex architectures. That’s all changed with the availability of new Azure enabled tools that significantly ease Microsoft and non-Microsoft data migrations to the cloud. In this three-week series, you will learn about the tremendous opportunities to capitalize on this customer need with the tools and technologies to build a new practice offering.

This program is designed for partners who are looking to understand the business opportunities for application modernization and database migrations with new technologies like Data Migration Services (DMS) and SQL Managed Instance that help accelerate that practice. Technical Leads and Business Decision Makers are best suited for this webinar series.

Date Topic
November 30 Database modernization – the partner opportunity and what’s new
December 7 Introduction to Data Migration Service and SQL Managed Instance
December 14 Using DMS and Azure SQL Managed Instance and GTM Offer
