Import/Export Data from SQL (Azure Virtual Machine) to Azure SQL

Our current web application uses Azure SQL Database. We need to create a scheduled process for importing/exporting data from a SQL database in Azure Virtual Machine to Azure SQl database. And also provide ability to trigger manually.

Currently we have manual scripts with Linked server which needs to be run on both servers.

What are the best options available for clean import/Export data automation (scheduled or manual)? for e.g. Secure Connection between servers, Tools or Applications (other than SSIS)

Could someone please provide guidance.

Thank you,
