Data#3 secures Azure Migration Services contract

Australian technology services company Data#3 has secured a contract to provide Azure Migration services to businesses as part of the Microsoft Modernisation Factory model in Australia.

The Modernisation Factory is used by Microsoft Services to support customers including Australian Government departments in migrating their on-premises infrastructure and IT workloads to the Azure cloud.

Data#3 secured the contract to provide Azure Migration services through a selection process that involved completing eight separate workload migration scenarios in a controlled lab environment. Data#3 was the only applicant to complete all eight scenarios within the allocated time frame.

The company will provide migration services for customers transitioning to Microsoft Azure regions, with a focus on the Australia Central regions, which are restricted to Australian and New Zealand government and critical infrastructure provider customers.

Data#3 secured certification to deliver services directly to the Azure Australia Central cloud earlier this year.

“As Microsoft’s largest Australian partner, this is a great achievement for the team. Cloud migration can be a challenging task for any company, and our skilled experts have the proven technical capability to help customers with their transformation goals,” said Data#3 CEO Laurence Baynham.

“From a strategy and vision perspective, Microsoft and Data#3 are in alignment, and this is good news for customers seeking to move to Azure.”

Data#3 recently revealed that revenues from its cloud business grew by 58% to $267 million in FY18.
