On Monday, Microsoft Corp. and Campbell Soup Co. announced a partnership to modernize Campbell’s information technology (IT) platform through the Azure cloud by streamlining workflows and driving efficiencies.
The migration to Azure is designed to improve the responsiveness of Campbell’s IT infrastructure, enabling it to be faster and more agile. Azure will provide Campbell with a global, hybrid cloud solution that will deliver new capabilities and provide near-real-time access to information and insights that will inform business decisions.
The platform will streamline operations across the enterprise and provide additional flexibility for Campbell employees through customized reporting and analytics.
“Campbell’s migration to Azure will increase our flexibility, agility and resiliency,” said Francisco Fraga, CIO, Campbell Soup. “Azure will give us the ability to respond quickly to evolving business needs, introduce new solutions, and support our 24/7, always-on architecture. The Microsoft cloud is a proven, reliable and highly secure platform.”
“We are honored that Campbell chose to modernize its IT platforms and evolve its digital strategies with Azure,” said Judson Althoff, executive vice president, Worldwide Commercial Business, Microsoft. “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 Microsoft solution will provide additional benefits, including increased security, compliance and information protection. The move to Azure will allow Campbell to re-architect its data warehousing capabilities to be able to support the company’s data and analytics needs.
