Cost optimization using Azure Migrate


Written by Shiva Shastri, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Azure Migrate—Product & Ecosystem


The higher energy cost and the resulting increase in the cost of doing business have led to a tighter economic outlook for most businesses around the world. This, in turn, is a major contributing factor to customers becoming more cost-conscious, leading to an increased need for optimization features in products and services. Azure Migrate’s comprehensive suite includes many features to optimize cost, while catering to your performance needs to meet service level agreements (SLAs). Agentless discovery and mapping of your entire on-premises IT estate, software inventory analysis for assessment and planning, and right-sized migration using a single portal to start, run, and track your projects, are a few cost-effective features that also contribute to ease of use. Once in Azure, the path towards greater optimization and cost savings continues through modernization to platform as a service (PaaS) and software as a service (SaaS).


Customer requirements and benefits

The customer must stay competitive, both on the technical and business fronts, to ensure continued success. Technical competency requires an agile and innovative IT platform with data analytics to provide insights that can help differentiate from the competition. It would be ideal if such an innovative platform were available at a competitive cost. Incidentally, modernizing existing IT infrastructure, applications, and data-to-PaaS/SaaS models in the cloud delivers on all these requirements, leading to a higher return on investment (ROI) for the customer.


The higher efficiency and lower cost due to the adoption of modern cloud-native architectures also lead to greater levels of flexibility and reduced vendor lock-in. Thus, setting the stage for the customer to realize greater value as they progress from IaaS to PaaS and onto SaaS models.
