Microsoft Bags Accenture as Its First Global Technology Services Provider

This is good news for Microsoft

This is good news for Microsoft, not that it needs any more cloud respectability than it already has, but it is important for both companies. By this latest agreement, Accenture will become the first global technology services provider for the Azure platform. The agreement also covers Accenture's subsidiary, Avanade. Accenture will be expanding its infrastructure by outsourcing from Microsoft Azure.

In the words of Avanade CEO, "This agreement provides us with the unprecedented ability to deliver a full-range of services and solutions that reinforce the value of Windows Azure as the leading enterprise cloud platform.  With more certified Windows Azure architects than any other Microsoft partner, coupled with our unique insights and innovation and integrated global delivery capabilities, we are able to help organizations quickly migrate to Windows Azure and realize business results faster.
