From online brand shops to global, digital B2B customer portals; that’s what our customers want today. The digital customer portal must be quickly deployable, scalable and flexible like our customers’ businesses. Exactly for this reason we have developed our new offering Commerce-as-a-Service. With On-Premises this would not have been possible too expensive, too slow, too static – not only for us but also for our customers. With Microsoft Azure we have the possibility to offer package services, which can be used quickly but can also be quickly expanded. This reduces the investment risk and the customer only pays for what he really needs. At Microsoft Azure we found not only the highest security standards met. Trust is a central question, especially in the area of digital customer portals. With the Intershop cloud solution based on Microsoft Azure we guarantee our customers security, flexibility and speed in the implementation of their digital strategy. The Microsoft go-to-market team has understood us and our challenge immediately. The Microsoft partnership was a successful step for us into the common future of a digital, connected customer portal on a cloud basis.
