Strategies for migrating to Azure

Azure cloud adoption is now part of the digital transformation process for many organizations. This is because Azure offers companies multiple advantages over classic on-premise solutions: greater flexibility in infrastructure management, enhanced security, cost control and eventual cost savings.However, an Azure cloud adoption process cannot go without an initial assessment phase to determine the best way to migrate or modernize each asset to the cloud. Defining a strategy is therefore a key aspect of the migration process itself.To identify the best migration strategy, Microsoft suggests adopting the 5 “R” system of rationalization: a scale of migration and modernization that ranges from simple replication of servers on Azure IaaS instance, without modification of workloads, to complete replacement of workloads with SaaS services.
