Virtual Workshop – Data Modernization in a DayVinayak Patil
Datafortune conducted a virtual workshop – Data Modernization in a Day on Wednesday, 19th August 2020. A deep-dive, interactive exploration of how to migrate apps & databases to the cloud. We hosted a one-day workshop covering everything from white boarding migration strategies to hands-on demo of data migration tools.
In this workshop, professionals in data management and technical decision-making roles got insights of the following:
- The reasoning & value of migrating apps & databases to Azure
- How to whiteboard a data migration strategy
- Tools & methods available to help you migrate your data
The morning session focused on data migration use cases, cloud TCO value, common obstacles to avoid, and mapping out their migration/modernization strategy. The afternoon session was dedicated to hands-on demos to help them get started on their cloud migration journey.
Demos were focused on (1) using Microsoft Azure SQL database managed Instance to lift-and-shift their database to Azure, and (2) migrating a line of business application to Azure.
