Copying Podio data to SQL Azure cannot be simpler. You just need to perform the following three simple steps.
Specify necessary connection parameters for Podio.
Specify necessary connection parameters for SQL Azure.
Skyvia supports secure connections to SQL Azure.
Select Podio objects to replicate.
Just select check boxes in a list of Podio objects (e.g. Items, Tasks, etc.). If necessary, you can tweak it in more details - replicate only part of Podio fields and filter data to replicate.
You don't need to prepare the SQL Azure database - Skyvia creates the tables corresponding to the Podio objects - Items, Tasks, etc. - automatically.
Skyvia can more than just create a copy of the Podio data in SQL Azure - it can keep this copy in an up-to-date state automatically. All you need is to configure a schedule when to update the SQL Azure replica database.
With Skyvia you can copy all the data from a Podio object or disable replication for some Podio object fields. You can also configure filters for data to replicate.
If you need more than just to copy data from Podio to SQL Azure, you may use Skyvia's powerful data import functionality. Skyvia's data import tools will correctly extract Podio data, transform it, and load to SQL Azure when SQL Azure tables have different structure than Podio objects.
