Umbraco Partners With Microsoft 


Umbraco announced a strategic agreement with Microsoft to extend the reach of Umbraco’s easy-to-use, flexible and open-source content management system (CMS) built on Microsoft.NET.

It will strengthen its position in the Azure Marketplace, an online store built around Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform that contains thousands of IT software applications and services to build new solutions and manage cloud infrastructures.

“Not only is Umbraco one of the most deployed contact management systems on the Microsoft stack, but it is in the top five most popular server applications and among the 10 most popular open-source tools available today,” said Morten Thomsen, Partner Director, Microsoft.

“Our partnership is based on a common desire to strengthen the spread of Umbraco’s CMS, its cloud products, and its position with Azure even further to help companies more easily publish content on their digital platforms.”

Listed on the Azure marketplace are Umbraco Cloud and Umbraco Heartcore, the company’s headless CMS. These technologies are at the core of Umbraco’s composable digital experience platform (DXP), which lets companies integrate best-of-breed applications or tools with the CMS to design the digital experiences that fit their organisation’s needs instead of deploying a monolithic suite comprised of multiple MarTech technologies all integrated into one suite purchased from one vendor. As a composable DXP, the solutions, including Umbraco Cloud, work together via APIs to flexibly deliver content and customised digital experiences to customers.

“Microsoft’s secure, stable and scalable Azure cloud, and its extensive online marketplace, will enable even more companies to take advantage of our composable DXP designed around our user-friendly and highly flexible CMS,” said Jesper Lyngbye, vice president of technology partnerships, Umbraco.

“As a result, they can configure their digital experiences across their digital platforms just the way they want, creating their preferred tech stack without any limitations. We look forward to seeing new success cases enabled through this new partnership—-and go to market together with Microsoft.”
