PepsiCo and Microsoft have announced a five-year partnership that will help the former leverage the power of Microsoft’s cloud computing prowess. The deal has established Microsoft as the cloud provider of PepsiCo to accelerate its infrastructure, ERP, and data journey.
PepsiCo CIO, Seth Cohen said: “Through our partnership with Microsoft, we aim to improve service delivery capabilities to meet rising demand for essential goods while driving new innovations to make our operations and workforce stronger and more resilient for the future.”
PepsiCo will be introducing Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams to its workforce worldwide. Microsoft Azure will be used by the food and beverage giant to achieve greater agility and to derive data insights to drive innovations.
“Our partnership with PepsiCo applies Azure and AI capabilities to the ever-changing supply chain and retail landscape in new and exciting ways. By migrating PepsiCo’s global data estate and SAP landscapes to Azure, we’ll be able to help PepsiCo drive efficiencies from farmer to consumer,” said Deb Cupp, Microsoft CVP Enterprise Commercial Business.
PepsiCo has big ambitions for ‘aggressive innovation’ by tapping into the cloud capabilities of Microsoft for modern solutions to tackle its issues.
