Niko Neugebauer is building a compendium of methods to migrate an on-prem database to Azure SQL Database:

I decided to put a list of the migration methods that can be useful for migrating to Azure SQLDatabase. By all means it is not complete and if you have any suggestions to expand it – do not be shy.

The current list of the ways that I am considering is here:

  • SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS)

  • BACPAC + SSMS/Portal/Powershell

  • SQL Azure Migration Wizard (SAMW)

  • SQL Server Data Tools (Visual Studio) + BCP/SSIS

  • Azure Data Factory

  • Transactional Replication

  • Linked Server

Read on for the details on each method.
