Your Roadmap for Azure Success
Decide What to Move to Azure
- Select which parts of your business operations should be moved from old, slow, expensive servers to the fast, affordable Azure cloud
- What new technology capabilities does your business need? Data, document management, mobile, collaboration? Decide which you’d like to add to the cloud
- Pick an experienced team of professionals to handle the migration to Azure (ex. HingePoint)
Stand-Up Azure Cloud Systems

FAQs (Azure Consulting, Dev & Integration)
- Can you set up SQL database on Azure?
Yes, we prefer to use an Azure cloud-hosted SQL database because it has more options and fewer limitations than the hosted, on-premise version of SQL. It can also rapidly scale bigger than 1 server capacity. Plus, it’s (typically) cheaper because you only pay for the data you store and transmit.
- What if our infrastructure is on-premise (on-site)?
That’s fine. We can migrate any piece to Azure (such as Active directory, Exchange, Office365 apps, SharePoint, and SQL servers, and network file servers). We can also architect a hybrid architecture that uses some elements of on-premise and some in the Azure cloud.
- Can you give me an example or a custom app you built on Azure?
This Procore connector for SharePoint is built on Azure.

- What Does Azure PaaS Mean?
Microsoft puts it this way: “Platform as a service (PaaS) is a complete development and deployment environment in the cloud, with resources that enable you to deliver everything from simple cloud-based apps to sophisticated, cloud-enabled enterprise applications. You purchase the resources you need from a cloud service provider [ex. Azure] on a pay-as-you-go basis”.
You might also be wondering how PaaS, software as a service (SaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) are different. Here’s how Microsoft explains it:
- Do you work on Azure?
As you can tell, the answer is yes! We recommend clients move all Microsoft technology and custom applications to Azure servers and re-architect their other applications to use Azure web services. We can help you do that as your trusted Azure partner.
