SAP in the Microsoft Cloud Course FAQs

Cloud migration is the process of moving applications and data from one location, often a company's private, on-site ("on-premises") servers to a public cloud provider’s servers, but also between different clouds. The main cloud migration benefits include reducing IT costs and improving performance, but there are security, convenience, and other advantages, too.

During a cloud migration, it’s likely that IT professionals will need to develop new skills to ensure a successful migration. That said, these skills can be quickly and easily acquired with the right training resources. Azure offers numerous trainings, courses, modules, and certificates to give you the skills and confidence to help your organization smoothly implement cloud technology.
