As a Microsoft Solutions Partner, Emergent Software offers services through Azure Marketplace.

We’re going to be blogging about each of those offers and how they can benefit your business, but first, here’s an introduction to Microsoft’s Azure Marketplace and why you should consider using it. 

What is Azure Marketplace?

Azure Marketplace is an online store for solutions that are built on or built for Azure. It’s part of the Microsoft Commercial Marketplace, which also includes AppSource for business solutions. You can use Azure Marketplace to find Microsoft-approved offers from companies offering Azure cloud professional services.

Why Use Azure Marketplace?

You don’t need Azure Marketplace to connect with a cloud consultant, so why should you use it? Here are a few benefits.

Microsoft approved

All offerings on the Marketplace are vetted by Microsoft, even down to how they are described by the partner. You can have confidence that the solution you purchase meets Microsoft’s standards.

Streamline the search for services

Instead of scouring the internet for consultants that provide a particular service, search for them all in one place. Products and services are organized into common cloud solution categories like app modernization, databases, migration, and more. You can also use search filters to narrow your results by industry, service type, pricing model, or country.

Understand the details and cost

Marketplace listings are straightforward. Microsoft has requirements for the listing, including that the solution offering is easily understood at a glance, outlines its value proposition, and lists pricing. This makes it easy to find solutions that meet your needs and compare them to each other.   

Unified billing

When you purchase services on Azure Marketplace, you receive a single, consolidated monthly bill from Microsoft that includes your Azure Marketplace purchases along with your Azure charges.

In a study commissioned by Microsoft, analyst firm GigaOm identified billing as a key reason for organizations to use Azure Marketplace, saying “Unified billing is undoubtedly a significant advantage that can be quickly identified. IT organizations in Azure looking at public cloud, or planning to grow and test drive multiple solutions, will find a well-defined and consolidated billing solution highly beneficial.”
