How to solve business challenges and grow through Azure Marketplace

BLOG publishing in marketplace 1

By Microsoft US Partner Team

The Azure Marketplace is an industry-leading online marketplace designed to connect customers with the Microsoft and partner solutions they need to drive modernization and innovation across their businesses. Simply creating a listing in the marketplace gives you access to 4 million active visitors per month across 140+ geographies. In addition, you can scale your sales force through Microsoft field sellers and partner-to-partner (P2P) co-sell while earning benefits through Marketplace Rewards.

We believe that simplifying the app procurement process through platforms like Azure Marketplace is key to driving modernization and innovation efforts in the cloud and want to share that vision with customers and partners alike.

That’s why Microsoft is hosting the first-ever Azure Marketplace App Fair on April 27, 2022, at 11am PDT. During this virtual event, attendees will learn about five of our most popular third-party solutions for solving business challenges around cloud management, security, big data, and app delivery—and how Azure Marketplace makes them easy to procure and deploy.

We encourage partners to register and invite your customers for this unique opportunity.

Microsoft cloud solutions are equipped with industry-leading out-of-the-box features that meet the needs of a wide range of customers.
