Cloud Enablement

Accelerate your transition to Azure cloud


What is Cloud Enablement?

Cloud enablement is the process of modernizing existing applications and data environments by migrating them to the cloud. Platform modernization replaces your legacy applications, data, and infrastructure with the benefits of the cloud and cloud-scale analytics. This eliminates the costs and inefficiencies of your old environment while providing tremendous economic, operational, and administrative business value.

With our Microsoft Azure cloud enablement services, you can address the challenges of outdated systems with the support of an experienced team.

Azure Migration Strategies


Often referred to as a lift-and-shift migration, this option often doesn't require code changes. You can use it to migrate your existing applications to Azure with minimal disruption to workflows and consumption patterns. Workloads are migrated as-is and can quickly integrate into the cloud. Take advantage of the native capabilities of the cloud without the risk and cost associated with code changes.


Often referred to as "repackaging," refactoring involves performing minimally viable changes to applications and workloads so that they can better leverage (and integrate with) cloud-native services.


Rearchitecting for migration focuses on modifying and extending application functionality and the codebase to optimize the application architecture for cloud scalability.

The Value:

  • Eliminates legacy systems with outdated code
  • Aligns with industry standards and best practices
  • Passes compliance, security, and data protection criteria
  • Full infrastructure/architecture assessment
  • Unlocks valuable data assets enabling cloud scale analytics
  • Business scalability is a huge advantage of moving to a cloud infrastructure

The Proof:

  • Reduces the risk of complex upgrades and migrations
  • Cloud economies of scale
  • Eliminates the need for high-cost legacy environments
  • Compatible with newer languages and frameworks
  • Constant support and maintenance

The Outcomes:

  • Improves customer agility
  • Improves compliance, controls, and security
  • Enhances performance and integration
  • Reduces excessive downtime and operating inefficiencies 

Deploying Blueprints via Azure DevOps Pipeline

This session will provide a brief overview of what Azure Blueprints are and how they can help your organization to scale your cloud footprint quickly while maintaining compliance. The demo will include deployment of an Azure Blueprint through the Azure portal and through Azure DevOps.

Q: Can we switch to a hybrid cloud model?

A: Yes, you can switch to a hybrid cloud model, which means that your data will be partly on a private cloud server and partly on a public cloud platform, such as Azure. Hybrid cloud enables private networking within the public cloud to securely deploy workloads.

Q: How can we ensure our cloud model is secure enough for our user’s demands?

A: Azure Sentinel security information and event management (SIEM) technology makes your threat detection and response smarter and faster with AI. Azure Sentinel is your birds-eye view across the enterprise. Eliminate security infrastructure setup and maintenance and scale to meet your security needs, all while reducing costs.

Q: How long will a cloud migration take?

A: That will depend on the scope of the migration. The cloud onboarding process and complexity of the migration are factors that can impact the timeline – our expertise can help expedite the journey to the cloud.

Q: Why do we need cloud enablement services?

A: Migrating applications to the cloud is an important and extensive process. It’s imperative that the migration is done in a secure and productive manner which can preserve data integrity, minimize disruptions, and ensure your team is prepared to run day-to-day operations on cloud-based workloads when migrations are complete.
