Through the thought leadership and services developed by the Market Units, Avanade has now become an official certified supplier of end to end Azure Hybrid Cloud Managed Services, including the provision of Avanade's own Azure Stack integrated system. This is a differentiated proposition that uniquely positions Avanade as a systems integrator for Microsoft Azure.

  • Deliver technical architecture guidance on our engagements, and provide feedback around the evolution of Azure solutions.
  • Participate in internal briefings on Azure and Azure Stack, to build awareness across Avanade, Accenture and Microsoft
