Atea ASA has signed an agreement with Microsoft to accelerate Atea’s sales of cloud services and offerings. The 3-year agreement enables Atea to build more than 25 new services on the Azure platform. The agreement will help drive Atea strategy in three core investment areas: Cloud, Sustainability and Security.
The new collaboration with Microsoft aims to respond to Atea’s growing customer needs for cloud services and cloud operations delivered by Atea. Atea has recently signed multiple new cloud agreements with large private and public enterprises across the Nordics.
The agreement will enable Atea’s customers to reduce their carbon footprint through migration to modern datacenters based on cloud technologies, also supporting Atea’s strategy within sustainability. During the past year, Atea has won numerous recognitions for its efforts within sustainability, including a ranking as the world’s most sustainable company in the IT Services Division by Corporate Knights, a globally respected research and media company. In addition, Atea has earned the highest rating (platinum) in environmental and social performance by EcoVadis for three years in a row, ranking Atea among the top 1% of more than 90,000 companies evaluated.
