Have you started your data platform migration yet? If not, you can be certain that your competitors have either already migrated, or will be soon. What are you waiting for? A modern data platform opens a wealth of opportunities for your organization.
Businesses are leaving legacy platforms, such as Sybase, Oracle and Teradata at an increasing rate. One reason is the cost to maintain and manage older platforms, as well as dealing with performance and management challenges. Pragmatic Works hears from many of our customers who have reached their cost tipping point and are ready to make the move.
Other top reasons businesses are migrating:
- Reduced operating costs, since new data and cloud platforms deliver innovative capabilities and require less maintenance and management.
- Improving performance and availability with efficiency gained from Microsoft’s data and cloud platform.
- Compliance, security and risk reduction by moving to Microsoft’s SQL Server and Azure, which have the most secure data and application platforms on the market.
- New capabilities are a top 5 reason why companies are moving from legacy platforms. Modern platforms support and accelerate innovation.
Why now? Companies are seeking alternatives to get away from high costs and lack of flexibility, as well as poor performance and reduced capabilities. Businesses that migrate to SQL Server and Azure see significant improvements in their business in the first 6 months post migration.
