Microsoft has announced that it will be teaming up with Campbell in order to help the soup company migrate its services to the Azure cloud.
The tech giant's proposed hybrid cloud solution will help modernize Campbell's IT platform, making it more secure in comparison to its current state. Furthermore, it will have increased efficiency, enabling near-real-time access to required information. Employees will be able to gain additional flexibility as operations across the business are streamlined. In essence, the move to Azure will provide the soup company a solution to its increasing data and analytics requirements.
Francisco Fraga, CIO of Campbell, expressed his delight at the new partnership, terming Azure a "proven, reliable and highly secure platform". In addition, he noted that migrating to the tech giant's cloud platform will enable the company to re-architect itself according to evolving business needs.
Judson Althoff, Microsoft's Executive VP of Worldwide Commercial Business, commented on the new partnership, noting:
"We are honored that Campbell chose to modernize its IT platforms and evolve its digital strategies with Azure. We are looking forward to working with Campbell as it transitions to the cloud, helping them optimize operations, extract insights from data and advance their business."
The tech giant offered its Azure cloud platform to Xiaomi for user data storage earlier this year, and also collaborated with the Thales Group to provide a Defence Cloud solution to armed forces last month.
