Microsoft on Wednesday announced the acquisition of cloud migration provider Movere, to help more customers move their existing apps and infrastructure to Azure.
Movere, formerly known as Unified Logic, started the business as a consulting company in 2008. Based in Bellevue, Wash, the Movere is a SaaS platform that increases business intelligence by presenting entire IT environments within a single day. It provides businesses visibility and control over their environments.
In a blog post, the co-founder and CEO of Movere, Kristin Ireland wrote, “The acquisition by Microsoft is not just a marriage of a best-in-class and trusted cloud platform with a powerful data and insights platform; it is also the merge of passions of two companies looking to move mountains for customers through a deep partner ecosystem, with the ultimate goal of enabling your business transformation delivered at the speed of light.”
Microsoft believes that the innovative discovery and assessment capabilities of Movere will complement Azure Migrate to make the migration of large workloads and data to Azure cloud an easy process. This will eventually enable business transformation.
“We believe that successful cloud migrations enable business transformation, and this acquisition underscores our investments to make that happen,” wrote Jeremy Winter, Partner Director, Azure Management in a blog post.
“We aim to streamline our customers’ journey to the cloud, enabling them to bring innovation and transformation with the power of Azure.”
This is Microsoft’s 11th acquisition in 2019 so far. The tech giant made one more Azure related partnership with jClarity this month for optimizing java workloads on Azure.
