Data Warehouse Migration Challenges

Data warehouses are dynamic, complex and unpredictable with many users and applications accessing large, varied data sets. Before you migrate to Azure it’s critical to establish a comprehensive profile of data warehouse usage to identify the migration inhibitors common in legacy data warehouses. These unanticipated issues, if not identified and addressed, will increase the time, cost, and risk of your migrations.

Optimizing Azure DW Costs 

Legacy data warehouses often contain inefficient applications and user querying behavior that, while tolerated on well-resourced on-premise servers, drive up costs unnecessarily in Azure. To manage and control your Azure data warehousing costs, it is critical to identify and address wasteful usage practices as you migrate to the cloud.

Matching the Right Azure Service for Your Unique Data Warehouses and Analytics

Azure offers a variety of choices for SQL Server data warehousing: Managed Instance, VM, Azure SQL, Azure Synapse Analytics, Azure Data Lake, Data Bricks and even Cosmos DB. Data warehouse size, data type variety, workload complexity, concurrency, and performance are just some of the factors that determine where you should migrate your workloads and, importantly, how to provision your data warehouse to minimize risks and costs while optimizing performance and business value.
