Looking for an exclusive opportunity to experiment with the Windows Azure platform in your enterprise? If the answer is yes, the Sogeti Microsoft Azure Privilege Club is right for you! During 2012 we run national initiatives in Sweden, USA, The Netherlands and France.
What is the Azure Privilege Club?
The Sogeti Azure Privilege Club (APC) is a unique, global and exciting way to allow your organization to take the first steps into Cloud Computing with the help and dedication of Microsoft and Sogeti. This Club is a six month interactive initiative, comprised of individuals from organizations that have a committed interest in improving their business process and performance through Cloud Computing. The objective of this Club is to provide you with the chance to pilot your own application using Microsoft Azure while gaining valuable feedback from the experience of all the organizations in the Club.
“We believe that adoption of Cloud Computing requires a clear top down commitment and the execution of concrete initiatives that demonstrate business value,” commented Luc-François Salvador, Chairman and CEO Sogeti worldwide. “With the launch of the Sogeti Azure Privilege Club offering, we will make this a reality for a selected group of our priority customers. Our cloud partnership with Microsoft and the strength of the Windows Azure platform enables this important customer initiative.”
The interactive program was initiated on December 10th, 2010. The first six month initiative included twelve selected clients. The Sogeti Azure Privilege Club allows participating clients to try on the Cloud by realizing a separate hosted solution. The program is built on three key words: Learn – Innovate – Connect. Through the Sogeti Azure Privilege Club we, and the member companies, share experiences and strategies. The members meet and inspire each other during the the six month programme, creating valuable relations also for the future.
