ERP vendor, Epicor entered into a strategic partnership with Microsoft to deliver Epicor enterprise-class solutions globally on the Microsoft Azure platform. The company will initially standardize cloud deployment of its Epicor ERP and Epicor Prophet 21 ERP suites on Microsoft Azure, empowering customers to drive faster growth and innovation as they move to digitally transform their businesses.
“Microsoft’s focus on the ‘Intelligent Cloud’ and ‘Intelligent Edge’ complement our customer-centric focus,” said Steve Murphy, CEO at Epicor. “We looked at several public cloud options. Microsoft Azure offers the best foundation for building and deploying enterprise business applications that will enable our customers’ businesses to adapt and grow. Today, we are seeing more than three-quarters of prospects ask about cloud ERP. As that deployment model becomes the norm, we are ready to enable our customers to move to the cloud with confidence leveraging the reliability, security, and scalability of Microsoft Azure.”
“Standardizing cloud deployment of its world-class manufacturing and distribution solutions on Microsoft Azure is a natural step for Epicor with its history of leveraging forward-looking technology to deliver the utmost value to its customers,” said David Willis, corporate vice president at Microsoft. “With Epicor solutions running in the cloud, customers will reap the benefits of greater agility, faster innovation, and favorable economics of Azure as they embrace digital transformation.”
