The Imaginet Azure Quickstart utilizes our award winning best practices  and adoption strategies to guide organizations through the process of understanding the full potential and business impact  of Microsoft Azure.  We provide a framework to guide your organization in identifying candidate software applications for migration to Microsoft Azure.

The Azure Quickstart is a combination of the a Discovery Phase and a Pilot Phase. The discovery phase provides your organization with education on Microsoft’s Azure offering and a methodology, based on industry best practices, to guide you through candidate selection.  Organizational business drivers and Azure capabilities are combined to form a framework that can be used to evaluate your current software applications and determine which are best suited to be migrated to Azure.

The pilot phase enables stakeholders to assess how the technology functions in your organization and the process that will be required to migrate additional applications to the cloud.
