If you haven’t moved your systems over to the Cloud yet, what are you waiting for? IDG Enterprise found in a 2016 Cloud Computing study that an estimated 70% of U.S. companies and organizations have moved to the Cloud in some capacity. 56% are currently planning to transfer even more IT operations over to the Cloud..
Features of the Cloud

- from Azure Service Management (ASM) to Azure Resource Manager (ARM)
SQL Server database to Azure SQL database
Azure SQL Database is an enterprise-worthy database platform that offers relational database-as-a-service.
Modernize existing applications – IaaS to PaaS
PaaS offers greater speed and flexibility than IaaS if there are multiple developers or vendors working on the same development project.
Hybrid cloud environments combine the use of a public cloud provider with a private cloud platform to easily navigate through issues like security, downtime risks, data management, and costs.
Custom application development hosted on the Cloud
Azure is a fully-managed platform that allows developers to quickly build and scale enterprise-grade applications.

Planning a Data Migration?
Since operating in the cloud is different from operating on-premise, properly moving workloads to Azure goes far beyond a simple “lift and shift.” Unless you’re moving to a platform-as-a-service (PaaS), it’s pretty easy to get things wrong the first time. Each cloud infrastructure (i.e. Microsoft Azure, AWS, Google Cloud) offers its services in building blocks, which create many alternative ways to build your online environment.
The key to cloud migration is to find the simplest set up. This will reduce costs and make it easier for your team to transition to the new system.
Build With Azure
Here’s why alligatortek develops on the Azure platform:
Scale your apps with PaaS and IaaS capabilities.
Use the business intelligence tools embedded within your apps.
Use the tools and technologies you already have and want to use.
Azure has over 50 compliance and data privacy certifications.
A major part of alligatortek’s service offerings are to review your current operations and processes to revise and fine-tune workloads. This critical, but often overlooked, step can make or break your transition. Reviewing your existing processes will streamline your operations and, ultimately, make it easy for your company to adjust to the dynamic capabilities of the cloud.
Do I need to migrate all my data to the cloud?
Most corporate legacy systems (i.e. database and longtime client management systems) are not cloud-ready. However, high-level IT professionals have found that technology is (surprisingly) not the biggest challenge they had to overcome when migrating to the Cloud. Their major resistance comes from the people and processes that must adapt to the change.
A hybrid cloud solution allows you to continue operating these applications for a little while longer as you begin your migration. We help your organization ease into the change by validating that your workflows are simple, user-intuitive, and will make a positive difference across your business. We also partner with you to create and implement a transition plan that will work for your team.
