On the eve of DATA:Scotland, join Microsoft for this hands-on workshop to guide you through an on-premises database migration to the cloud!
About this Event
DATA:Scotland is proud to host this fringe event where Microsoft who will be providing a hands-on workshop to guide you through an on-premises database migration to the cloud! Azure, as it happens!
Database Modernisation is key to delivering successful Digital Transformation. With Azure, modernising your data workloads can deliver lowest TCO and disruptive innovation. Extended support for SQL Server 2008 ended in July, with typical data estates still having over 50% SQL 2008, moving and modernising these workloads quickly is key to avoid being out of support.
Join us to get hands-on experience of planning and executing an end to end migration, using an easy, straightforward process (Assess, Migrate, Optimise). You will also use what you have learned to perform your own Architecture hack, repeatable for your data estate.
Attendees can expect to:
• Get hands on with latest migration tools and PaaS services;
• Assess, migrate and optimise an application, legacy SQL database and SSIS to Azure;
• Learn how SQL Modernisation unlocks TCO and digital transformation;
• Network with peers from across industries.
• Please bring a laptop capable of connecting to Azure;
• Looking to migrate or modernise SQL Server in next ~ 6 months;
• This is technical session but open to all.
Please Note that spaces are limited so please only sign up if you are able to attend.
