Software AG partners with Microsoft to accelerate Azure migration

Software AG has teamed up with Microsoft in a move to accelerate and simplify migration to Microsoft Azure. 

Software AG’s new Cloud Migration Accelerator, based on the company’s Integration platform, is designed to enable enterprises to connect to applications, cloud services and data faster and more easily, providing a ‘seamless path to a truly connected ecosystem’.

Cloud migrations are often a complex journey, challenging IT teams to move or replace on-premise technology to the cloud while ensuring that ongoing business operations run smoothly. Moving existing applications to the cloud involves a continuous need to connect or re-connect applications from on-premise to new cloud services, or new cloud services to other new cloud services. 

Making this hybrid transition as smooth as possible while maintaining business operations and access to data is critical for enterprises.

Software AG CEO Sanjay Brahmawar says enterprises eager to migrate to Microsoft Azure benefit from technology that serves as the critical connective tissue that allows easy and fast access to applications, cloud services and data during the migration process.

“Our solution with Microsoft enables enterprises to have a truly connected ecosystem,” he says. 

“Customers will not only accelerate migration but can also spark innovation and turn data into real value as they safeguard their most important IT assets.”

Anthony Roberts, CIO, Walgreens Boots Alliance, says they recently embarked on a cloud migration journey that put 70% of its current IT footprint on Microsoft Azure while 30% of its IT remains on-premise.

“We use Software AG’s webMethods to remain connected to existing integrated solutions and business processes while some IT components moved to the cloud and others remained on-premise,” roberts explains.

“webMethods safeguards our most important IT assets during the complex migration process,” he says.

Judson Althoff, executive vice president, Worldwide Commercial Business at Microsoft Corporation adds, “Most large cloud migrations face the challenge of ensuring business continuity while the IT landscape changes at the same time. 

“Software AG''s webMethods gives enterprises the opportunity to create a smooth migration path to the cloud and immediately capitalise on the benefits of Microsoft Azure,” he says.

The Cloud Migration Accelerator based on is immediately available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace as a SaaS offering.
