Move to Azure SQL Database with confidence
Updated: Mar 16
In the always-changing market of technologies, companies that can manage and analyze data, converting it into business insights while reducing implementation and maintenance costs are the ones who thrive. Keeping the focus on core competencies of the business is not always an easy task, but if attained, can lead to better chances of providing customers the best service possible, handling the constant scalability and speed demands. Besides that, performance and productivity are a concern due to the challenges with database maintenance and app development cycles.
There is an evident push to move databases to the cloud, but companies step back questioning if they know what to do and how to respond when issues arise in unpleasant times that might result in increasing downtime and cutting performance. Having all these in mind and staying compliant with ever-increasing and changing regulations (GDPR) may prove to be hard, especially when there is a high pressure from disruptive cloud-born businesses and innovative new companies. How can a company face all these challenges and overcome the cost barrier? Find out below!
