"By combining the power, scale, and rich platform service offerings of Azure with Sitecore's customers, together we will drive digital transformation for our customers and help them achieve more."

"We are elated to be taking our Microsoft alliance to the next level," said Jean-Paul Gomes, Corporate Vice President and head of the Microsoft Alliance, Sitecore. "This relationship will accelerate Sitecore's innovation leadership and growth as a technology company, as well as provide an even more compelling experience to our joint customers and growth opportunities for our joint partners. While Sitecore has been in market with Azure-powered solutions since 2010, this expanded alliance helps enable Sitecore to innovate its Azure-based solutions at cloud speed and scale, thereby extending that competitive advantage to our joint customers and partners."
