Who Can Benefit

This workshop is for IT Administrators and staff who need to plan, implement, and manage migrations of on-premises resources to Azure, or to replicate Azure virtual machines to other Azure locations. They take business requests from workload owners to migrate workloads to the cloud in order to take advantage of the benefits that a cloud-enabled strategy provides over a traditional datacenter approach. This role requires communicating and coordinating with different individuals within the organization’s IT department and business groups, as well as vendors.
