You can receive a broad scope of advisory, professional, managed, and monetization services that accelerate your go-to-market timeline. An organization that takes advantage of these services can potentially see a three-year PV of $2.2 million rather than spending more than 500k to do it themselves.

Transition seamlessly from selling only one solution to multiple offerings

Discover new, innovative vendor solutions to add to your portfolio

Launch new solutions and services at break neck

Establish new partnerships to bridge competency or skill gaps, particularly with new digital technologies such as IoT and artificial intelligence

“You design it once on Azure, and you’re able to spin up multiple UAT (user acceptance testing), test, and customer environments in a very quick, simple manner, allowing us to achieve faster time-to-market and associated revenues.”

“Moving to Microsoft Azure on the CloudBlue platform increased our flexibility and speed-to-market. We also were able to have multiple disaster recovery (DR) sites worldwide with Azure.”

“CloudBlue represents the aggregation, provisioning, and content layer, and Microsoft Azure represents consistent compliance and control across a portfolio of services, with a wide-ranging geographical presence.”
