Have you migrated from AWS to Azure? If so, why did you move it? Were the results as expected?

Yes, mostly Microsoft .Net/SQL server migrated from AWS to Azure as a lift and shift, not a refactor or transformation. We moved it reduce operating expenses, took advantage of Microsoft licensing we owned for either on-Prem or azure cloud.

We have been predominantly Microsoft shop and used Azure as our cloud solution for a while. Some of our SaaS vendors, however have built their solutions on AWS, so we had to adopt it as well. Currently we have no plans to migrate from either, so I can not really comment on reasons or success of migration between the cloud providers at this point.

I did. As a Microsoft based eco system there were built in advantages both technical and mostly commercial in terms of cloud hosting credits and plans. It went pretty seamless as most of the workload was IaaS so it was pretty much lift and shift. I’d advise on a good partner/integrator to perform a large scale migration.

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
