Microsoft and ServiceNow today expanded their partnership to significantly enhance the integration and optimization of the products, platform and cloud capabilities of both the companies. As part of this partnership, ServiceNow will bring its full SaaS experience on Azure. With this partnership, ServiceNow has now become one of Microsoft’s strategic partners in its Global ISV Strategic Alliance Portfolio.
Key highlights of this partnership:
- ServiceNow will use Azure Cloud as part of its preferred cloud platform for certain highly regulated industries. ServiceNow will first be available through Azure Regions in Australia and Azure Government in the United States, followed by additional markets in the future.
- As part of a separate transaction, Microsoft will implement ServiceNow’s IT & Employee Experience workflow products across its own business to improve operations, enhance employee experiences, and deliver stronger business outcomes.
- ServiceNow will house its full SaaS experience on Azure in addition to its own private cloud.
“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.”
“Expanding our strategic global relationship with Microsoft enables ServiceNow to more fully leverage and integrate our platform and products with Microsoft’s leading enterprise technology and capabilities,” said John Donahoe, president and CEO of ServiceNow. “Together, ServiceNow and Microsoft will help our enterprise and government customers accelerate their digital transformation, creating great experiences and unlocking productivity.”
