Next Pathway, Microsoft Partner To Migrate Customers To Microsoft Azure


Next Pathway’s code translation technology, SHIFT, automates the conversion of legacy data warehouse code and ETLs to Microsoft Azure

Next Pathway Inc., the Automated Cloud Migration company, announced a collaboration with Microsoft to accelerate the migration from legacy data warehouses and data lakes to Microsoft Azure.

Next Pathway’s SHIFT Migration Suite is being offered as part of the Service to plan and execute Cloud Migrations to Azure. The suite includes SHIFT Analyser, which provides a comprehensive review of source legacy application workloads to review the code types and objects which are present, and SHIFT Translator, which accelerates the translation, testing and migration of complex workloads, such as SQL, Stored Procedures, ETL pipelines/workflows, and various other code types.  Moreover, Next Pathway’s technology can also move workloads from other cloud platforms and data warehouses to Azure easily and efficiently.

An important feature of Next Pathway’s technology is the ability to translate legacy ETL pipelines to run natively in Azure Data Factory (ADF).  ADF is a cloud-based data integration service that allows users to create data-driven workflows in the cloud to orchestrate and automate data movement and transformation.

This collaboration creates an accelerated path for customers to Azure. “At Next Pathway, we are continuously innovating to make it easier and faster for our customers to migrate to the cloud.  We are extremely excited to be working with Microsoft”, said Chetan Mathur, Chief Executive Officer at Next Pathway.

“We are pleased to partner with Next Pathway and provide our customers with a faster and more efficient migration path to Microsoft Azure,” said Zia Mansoor, Worldwide Vice President Data and AI.
