In the past, deploying a large organisations system to the cloud was a long and daunting experience. It began with a manual assessment by a technical architect of the environment, machine usage and workload of a company. Now, Microsoft has made this process quick and simple by offering a service that completes the assessment automatically and accurately. The software has been in preview stages to ensure that every detail is perfect and now that it is available for public consumption, the Tangent Solution team cannot wait to start implementing it into their cloud migration strategies.
Towards the end of last year, Microsoft announced their newest creation, Azure Migrate. This cutting-edge technology is designed to automatically conduct a machine audit for large enterprises looking to move to the cloud. Azure Migrate eliminates human error and ultimately saves the company time, leading to cost savings. Before a company can move to the Azure cloud, their infrastructure needs to be inspected, so that organisations know exactly how much space they need to rent from the cloud, for them to budget the costs with the company.
Azure Migrate does not simply assess the space that a company may need to budget for, it also assesses whether or not the company’s infrastructure is suitable to work in the cloud. The program is specially designed to work on onsite machines, no matter how outdated they may be. “The great thing about Azure Migrate is that we are able to install it on any machine and it does its job just as it should,” said Zander Janse van Rensburg, solutions architect at Tangent Solutions. “The program also works with hybrid cloud infrastructures, meaning that even if your company stores data both onsite and in the cloud, the program is able to evaluate your systems.”

Azure Migrate makes the move to the cloud completely convenient for the client because it cuts their time and cost in half. “Human error is always going to be a liability. However, technology such as Azure Migrate helps avoid this risk when dealing with large-scale companies. Since the program works automatically, the technician does not have to worry about missing a beat,” said Janse van Rensburg. Depending on the size of the company, the program will audit and assess the machinery for as long as the technicians feel that it is necessary.
“Tangent Solutions are always looking for the latest technological enhancements in the hopes of making their clients lives easier. We are constantly researching and looking for solutions such as Azure Migrate, which allow us to form a concrete strategy for clients.”
Janse van Rensburg said Tangent Solutions understand how Microsoft services work and know how to bring them into the South African market effectively. “We want our clients to know that they are our first priority which is why we find the technology that is going to benefit them the most.”
