Cozy up with that Halloween candy you bought “for the kids” and see what we’ve been up to this month. That, and keep an eye out for any other costumes that aren’t from Squid Game.
WHAT’S NEW WITH US
We’re over-the-moon in announcing our Azure Migrate Integration with the Tidal Platform.
Our philosophy is to leverage any previous discovery and assessment work. If you’ve collected data with Azure Migrate, this new feature will help you move all your inventory data directly into the Tidal Platform, saving time and reducing the risk of error. Once in the platform, you can enhance the data collected with application technology fingerprinting, source code analysis and database analysis, and be well on your way to a transformative migration that yields tangible business impact. Highlight opportunities to embrace Azure App Service and free yourself from legacy application frameworks.
NEW TIDAL CREW
Our team just keeps getting bigger, and we’re delighted to welcome our two new crew members, Bonnie Chiapponi, our new Executive Assistant, and Ravi Gaddam, joining the team as our Test Automation Engineer. A big Tidal welcome to you both!
We’ve got a whole barrel of fun planned for next month.
If you haven’t heard, our next All-Virtual Migration Enablement Workshop is on for November 9th, 2021. Register now and join us from home while our own David Colebatch walks you through the end-to-end cloud migration process.
Following on from our first session last month, you can catch Tidal and Flow Delivered again at Noon EST on November 18th for our next session, titled “Overcoming the Gap.” Make sure you’re covering all the bases when getting set up for success on your cloud migration journey, and register here.
And finally, we’ll be hosting a new Azure webinar on November 25th, called “How Federal Departments can unlock the Value of Legacy Apps with Cloud.” This one is still brewing, so stay tuned!
And as always, if you’re looking to empower your Cloud Center of Excellence, sign up for a dedicated, private workshop and power up your migration factory!
