Microsoft has made this possible by making Azure available in the
open licensing catalogue for India. SMBs in India rely on products
available with their local IT partner in open licensing catalogue to
fulfil their IT needs. With the inclusion of Azure, SMBs will now be
able to procure their entire IT portfolio from a single Microsoft
partner of their choice.

Cloud is a great way for SMBs to
enhance their business efficiency with minimal expenditure on IT.
Microsoft makes available the most comprehensive portfolio of
enterprise-grade cloud services preparing them to compete with the
best across the world. Office 365 is already available in the open
catalogue. With the addition of Azure, SMBs will be able to quickly
build and deploy applications at reduced costs with flexible monetary
terms and achieve faster return on investment.

Earlier customers could purchase Azure
either directly from www.azure.microsoft.com or as part of an
Enterprise Agreement (EA) with Microsoft. While these options would
continue, SMBs are likely to leverage their existing partners to
procure Azure.

“Over the years, our customers have
been able to adopt and benefit from new technologies though the
support of our 10,000 strong partner network. By making Azure
available through local partners, we are further helping India’s
SMBs secure the great benefits of cloud computing”, said Meetul
Patel, General Manager, Small and Midmarket Solutions & Partners,
India.

Microsoft is continuing to enable SMB
customers and partners to embrace cloud as the preferred mode for
deployment of IT. Azure further incentivizes partners to ‘do more’
for SMBs. It will help them deepen the engagement with customers in
identifying and supporting IT usage through Azure. Partners will
also be able to strengthen their revenue stream while working closely
with customers.
