To help customers save on data warehouse migration costs and accelerate time-to-insight on critical SAP data, we are announcing two new analytics offers from Azure Synapse Analytics.

Business disruptions, tactical pivots, and remote work have all emphasized the critical role analytics plays for every organization. Uncharted situations demand charted performance insights, so businesses can quickly determine what is and is not working. In recent months, the urgency for these business-guiding insights has only been heightened—leading to a need for real-time analytics solutions. And equally important is the need to discover and share these insights in the most cost-effective manner.

Azure Synapse has you covered. It is the undisputed leader in price-performance and when compared to other cloud providers is up to 14 times faster and costs 94 percent less. In fact, businesses using Azure Synapse today report an average ROI of 271 percent.

To help customers get started today, we are announcing the following new offers aimed at empowering businesses to act now wherever they are on their cloud analytics journey.

Save up to 76 percent when migrating to Azure Synapse

For customers that use an on-premises data warehouse, migrating to the cloud offers both significant cost savings and accelerated access to innovative features. Today, customers experience cost savings with our existing reserved capacity discount for cloud data warehousing with Azure Synapse. To boost these cost savings further, today we are announcing a new limited time offer that provides additional savings on top of the existing reserved capacity discount—enabling qualifying customers who currently use an on-premises data warehouse to save up to 76 percent when migrating to Azure Synapse.

To learn more about the terms and conditions and the qualification criteria of this offer, contact your Microsoft account representative. The migration offer is available until January 31, 2021.
