Azure Marketplace

Azure Marketplace is a curated digital storefront for accessing thousands of cloud solutions and services built to enhance and extend Microsoft Azure.

From virtual machines to software as a service (SaaS) application, Azure Marketplace offers a vast array of solutions to empower businesses across industries.

Microsoft Solution Partner

At Ultima, we live and breathe Microsoft. We’ve been a Microsoft partner for over 25 years and hold all six of the key Microsoft Partner Designations across Security, Modern Work and Azure (which includes Infrastructure, Data & AI and Digital & App Innovation).

We have also been awarded Advanced Specialisations in, Modernise Endpoint, Windows Virtual Desktop and Infrastructure & Database Migration.

A Note From Microsoft

“We are excited to be working with the Ultima team as a launch partner for the Azure Marketplace “Multi Party Private Offer” process in the UK in summer 2024.

This will bring together the strength of Ultima as a Microsoft and multi-vendor services partner with the power of Microsoft’s cloud marketplace, to deliver elastic cloud-first software solutions.

With solutions from a select group of Independant Software Vendors (ISV’s), this new mechanism combined with Ultima’s trusted advisory skills, cost optimisation processes and customer first approach will drive better value, governance, and commercial terms as UK organisations look to modernise their application portfolios”

Benefits of Using Microsoft Azure Marketplace

  • Efficiency: Quickly discover, deploy, and manage a wide range of cloud solutions from a single platform.
  • Modernise Procurement – using your existing Microsoft agreement procurement can be simplified with one invoice and contract
  • Consumption Commitment Decrement: Enhanced savings can be realised from adding your SaaS spend to future Microsoft agreements. Already have a Microsoft agreement in flight then marketplace spend can be used against existing consumption commitments.
  • Accelerate Innovation: Obtain the applications your business needs rapidly and efficiently.
