Microsoft has announced a five-year contract with Coca-Cola to modernize and standardize the beverage company’s software.
The contract covers Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365 and Dynamics 365 to provide an integrated solution, as opposed to the fragmented systems the company was using. An integration solution will also help Coca-Cola gain valuable insights from the data it collects. In particular, Dynamics 365 will apply artificial intelligence to drive insights.
“At The Coca-Cola Company, innovation and growth are key pillars of our business,” said Barry Simpson, senior vice president and chief information and integrated services officer of The Coca-Cola Company. “This partnership with Microsoft allows us to really step change our employee experience through replacing previously disparate and fragmented systems. These platforms allow us to deliver relevant, personalized experiences as we network our organization.”
“Coca-Cola is a pioneer and forward-thinking leader in its industry,” said Judson Althoff, executive vice president, Worldwide Commercial Business, Microsoft. “Today, the company is taking its digital innovation a step further, leveraging Dynamics 365, Microsoft 365 and Azure to better connect people and opportunities through breakthrough productivity and powerful information management that will drive continued business success over the next decade.”
The contract is a big win for Microsoft as it continues to make headway in the cloud marketplace.
