Quark Expands Collaboration with Microsoft to Extend QPP NextGen Reach

QPP NextGen will be available in the Microsoft Azure marketplace later this year.


  • Quark Software, the global provider of content automation, intelligence and design software, announced it has expanded its collaboration with Microsoft to extend the reach of Quark Publishing Platform (QPP) NextGen, its specialist enterprise content lifecycle management solution for automating highly regulated, complex and compliance-controlled content. The extended commitment gives global organisations access to the most complete set of content technology tools to manage each phase of the content lifecycle, from creation to publishing and everything in between.

    Under the terms of the agreement, QPP NextGen’s AI-powered content technology solutions will enable organisations to easily adopt, connect and integrate Quark’s purpose-built solutions in the cloud anywhere, any time, harvesting the benefits of existing ecosystem technologies such as Microsoft Azure OpenAI, Microsoft Data Factory, Microsoft Document Intelligence and Microsoft Power Automate to support their enterprise content and AI strategies.

    Microsoft Azure has become the defacto cloud platform of choice for enterprises as they build, deploy and manage business applications at scale. And as content plays a direct role in supporting business growth, organisations are overhauling their content infrastructure to support today’s digital output preference. They seek easily accessible tools to address complexities associated with creating and publishing omnichannel content at scale that adheres to stringent regulatory and compliance requirements that vary by industry and geography. QPP NextGen availability in the Microsoft Azure marketplace will offer enterprises an easy-on ramp to the most robust set of tools to address any content management challenge.

    “We recognised long ago that enterprises put trust in – and standardised on – Microsoft to fuel their business,” said Martin Owen, CEO at Quark. “QPP NextGen is currently fully integrated with Microsoft Office 365, making it simple for content teams to modernise their content creation and publishing processes without having to change the way they work. Today, we’re reinforcing our commitment to being on a journey with Microsoft and as AI adoption takes centre stage for many organisations, we are there to support their investment with Azure AI tools to help them understand how AI can support their content strategy objectives.”

    “Quark has helped revolutionise the digital publishing industry with software that addresses every enterprise content challenge,” said James Chadwick, Head of ISV, Microsoft UK. “We’re excited to develop this relationship and give even more organisations access to the software tools to modernise their content operations.”

    QPP NextGen will be available in the Azure marketplace later this year. The company will provide a seamless path for current users interested in migrating to Azure.
