Stratis is excited to announce that we are now a certified Microsoft Partner. Our mission is to get C# blockchain technologies in front of enterprise customers, and we look forward to utilizing the marketing and development resources Microsoft provides to its certified partners. The Azure Marketplace gives app and service providers access to 120,000 enterprise customers and 800,000 ecosystem partners in 190 countries. Microsoft actively helps to guide customers to their partners, and partners are given resources which allow them to increase their product’s exposure on Microsoft’s Go-To-Market Services.
With over 1 million active users, the marketplace generates over 100,000 leads to partners every month – Microsoft ISV Program
This partnership comes at a critical and also exciting time for Stratis; the services which constitute the core Stratis Platform, including smart contracts, sidechains, and the enterprise-focused Stratis DLT, are set to be released in the next few months. Stratis Group Ltd. are the first blockchain company with their own cryptocurrency to partner with Microsoft in this way, and this partnership will help us make the most of our unique position within Microsoft’s software environment. We also think of this step as just the first step in enhancing our existing relationship with Microsoft, and we aim to become a Gold Partner in the near future!
This partnership gets me very excited indeed. I am looking forward to working with Microsoft’s Go-To-Market Team and further leveraging the Azure technology stack with the Stratis Platform. – Chris Trew
The accreditation is indicative of the relationship that Stratis has with the .NET Framework, a software framework developed by Microsoft. Stratis is the first and only cryptocurrency with full nodes built from the ground up in C# meaning that applications built using the Stratis Platform are a part of the .NET ecosystem. This partnership is a natural next step for Stratis.
