Microsoft’s business relies on partners. Its partner website relies on Sitecore.
Microsoft is a global technology company that develops, manufactures, and sells computer and electronic software, services, devices, and solutions for individuals and businesses. They have hundreds of thousands of partners worldwide and are continuously looking for ways to make it easier for their partners to do business with them.
One of the primary ways in which its partners view and interact with Microsoft products, services, and solutions is through its Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) website. However, the site had become outdated over time and was in need of a new platform that could provide a faster load time and take advantage of the latest technologies including a more efficient publishing tool with targeted marketing capabilities and more personalized content.
Microsoft chose Sitecore® Experience Platform™ (XP) together with Sitecore® Experience Database™ (xDB) and Sitecore® Federated Experience Manager (FXM). The new website is fully hosted on Azure in multiple regions around the world. With Sitecore, new content and visuals only need to be developed once and any changes are automatically applied to MPN sites worldwide. In addition, page-load times take on average, less than 0.5 seconds. Additionally, the new site has a more modern, innovative design that emphasizes a simple, personalized, user-friendly experience that is sophisticated enough to meet business goals with measurable results.
