Microsoft Corp. and ServiceNow announced on Tuesday that its strategic partnership with ServiceNow is expanding to enhance the integration and optimization of the companies’ products, platform and cloud capabilities.
The partnership will enable enterprise customers to accelerate their digital transformation and drive new levels of insight and innovation. As leading enterprise technology platforms, Microsoft and ServiceNow make it easier for customers to integrate and optimize across the two companies’ products and platforms.
“There is an enormous opportunity for customers — including in the public sector — to apply the power of the cloud to become more efficient and responsive,” said Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft. “Our partnership combines ServiceNow’s expertise in digital workflows with Azure, our trusted cloud, so that customers can accelerate their digital transformation, while meeting their security and compliance needs.”
In addition, ServiceNow will house its full SaaS experience on Azure along with its own private cloud. ServiceNow will use Azure Cloud as part of its preferred cloud platform for certain highly regulated industries, benefiting from Microsoft’s deep expertise in data protection, security and privacy, including the most comprehensive set of compliance offerings of any cloud service provider.
The expanded agreement builds on a partnership announced in October 2018 by Microsoft and ServiceNow. By collaborating on next-generation experiences, Microsoft and ServiceNow will leverage technology to bring further cognitive services and intelligence to products across the Now Platform with Microsoft 365 and Azure.
Microsoft enables digital transformation for the era of an intelligent cloud and an intelligent edge. Its mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.
