Data Migration

Migrating SSIS Solutions to Azure Data Factory.

Migrating SSIS processes from on-premise to a modern cloud architecture.

As your company looks to modernize your data architecture, you may start to notice that your legacy SSIS implementation is not fit to handle the growth of your organization. Latency, slow query performance, and expensive server costs are just a few of the issues you may encounter if you don’t migrate SSIS processes to a cloud environment.

2nd Watch will help your organization overcome these challenges by migrating your on-premise solution to a functional and optimal modern cloud platform.

Our team of qualified, experienced professionals can help your business implement a solution that is cost-effective, extensible, and easy to maintain.
