Insight Enterprises has signed a new global agreement with Microsoft that includes a multi-year Microsoft Azure consumption commitment as well as a new strategic partnership framework.

Building on the pair’s existing relationship, the agreement will expand the global systems integrator’s range of cloud offerings to include digital solutions built on Azure and Microsoft 365.

The firm said the move will provide clients with streamlined transactions and more competitive Microsoft-aligned products from its ecosystem of partners. 

“We have worked with Microsoft for more than 25 years to provide clients with world-class technology,” said Insight CEO Joyce Mullen. “Our clients worldwide want to run as efficiently as possible, and the Azure platform is core to our expertise in cloud, data, AI, cyber security and edge as we address their critical business needs. The power of Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365 productivity tools accelerates their ability to digitally transform.”

As a global systems integrator, Insight specializes in architecting, building, and managing solutions for complex IT environments and offers a range of digital transformation services augmented by its network of over 6000 partners. 

The firm already collaborates with Microsoft to develop AI-powered solutions for automating complex tasks and driving productivity. It was also one of the first partners to publish offers for Microsoft 365 Copilot and offers a custom Microsoft 365 Copilot Readiness Fast Start accelerator to provide clients with a strategic roadmap for Azure OpenAI Service and the Copilotstack.
