On March 19, I delivered a session at Microsoft Azure Conference on Migrating SQL Databases to Azure SQL. Yes, not many can find me talking about moving data from SQL Server, I just love SQL Server :) – but one needs to be realistic and accept the changing times! After all, me and my company believes in providing the right advisory services to our customers and Microsoft Azure is a great choice today.

Azure Conference was organized by Microsoft India and hosted at JW Marriott in Pune on March 18 & 19.

It was a wonderful conference. I got yet another opportunity to connect with Microsoft Leadership, Pune MVPs, other great speakers from Microsoft & the community and of course, the audience

Here is the lone pic an attendee took while I was presenting. Thanks to him!
