Dun & Bradstreet Teams Up with Microsoft
Dun & Bradstreet, a provider of commercial data, analytics and insights for business, has selected Microsoft as a strategic cloud provider to accelerate the company’s digital transformation, giving Dun & Bradstreet customers direct access to its data through Microsoft’s cloud services.
In addition, Dun & Bradstreet will power core applications and build new services on Microsoft Azure, and plans to use Microsoft intelligent cloud services to modernize applications. Dun & Bradstreet data will be made available within Microsoft Dynamics 365, with the first offerings expected to be in market later this year.
Dun & Bradstreet provides data and analytics services for business-to-business (B2B) sales and marketing, risk management, supply-chain management, sales lead scoring, and credit history management.
Built for, and on, Azure, Dynamics 365 unifies CRM and ERP capabilities into applications that work together across sales, customer service, field service, operations, financials, marketing, and project service automation.
The Microsoft Azure cloud platform will help Dun & Bradstreet meet its customers’ demand for real-time connectivity to their global business ecosystem by enabling it to update and scale faster and increase velocity and timeliness for customers that rely on their data to look for new business opportunities.
By partnering strategically with Microsoft, Dun & Bradstreet can take advantage of the scale and speed of cloud-based technologies, accelerate its innovation, and power seamless access to data and insights, noted Josh Peirez, president and chief operating officer of Dun & Bradstreet.
According to the vendors, in addition to delivering more seamless solutions than previously possible, the native integrations with Microsoft Dynamics 365 business applications will introduce Dun & Bradstreet to new users and use cases.
