Microsoft Azure is the only hybrid cloud that allows customers to migrate apps, data, and infrastructure with cost-effective and flexible paths. Use the materials in this campaign to hold an event that will help your customers to understand how thousands of organizations have migrated to Azure, at their own pace and with high confidence by using a reliable methodology, flexible and powerful tools, and proven partner expertise. Customers will learn how Azure can help them save—before, during, and after migration, and how it offers unmatched value during every stage of their cloud migration journey. They'll also learn about assessments, migration offers, and cost management tools to help them migrate with confidence.
Your target customer audience should be prospects that are just starting to explore moving their applications, data, and infrastructure to the cloud. This is a 50-100 level type training to get your customer base interested in Azure. We recommend hosting this event in person or via webinar.
