Today, it is my great pleasure to announce that Movere has been acquired by Microsoft. When we started the company nearly 11 years ago, we were a consulting company that ambitiously wanted to change an industry; to live our passion; and to unleash our customers’ potential. Our relentless drive to do things better and faster pivoted our consulting practice toward enabling our customers to do more with data, and in turn to the relentless automation of data collection. Our goal to provide deeper customer value by providing actionable data and insights was realized with the launch of Movere: giving customers the power of the story that only data can tell.
From the beginning, the team at Microsoft has been some of our staunchest advocates and have brought together many of our customers and partners. With our growing and fabulous team focused on enabling the best possible customer outcomes, we continued to build on top of an already powerful platform; always driving to help customers enjoy the best migration experience possible.
The story within is our own cloud migration. On our journey to cloud, we made mistakes that cost us valuable time and resources that we didn’t have. As we spread our wings in the cloud, we realized the cloud was the embodiment of Movere – the unleashing of business potential through migration – we knew we had to be part of that journey for as many customers as we could.
Our platform became a vehicle not only for sharing our best practices but also providing tools to get businesses started on their own path. We knew that if we could help make the cloud journey faster, better and more predictable, we would be enabling business transformation.
We passionately believe the cloud journey is what opens the door to market disrupting ideas and opportunities; to be part of that journey with customers and partners is a privilege. So, thank you to our partners and customers for allowing us to be part of that journey thus far; we are so excited to continue to be faster and better for you as part of the Microsoft Azure team.
The acquisition by Microsoft is not just a marriage of a best-in-class and trusted cloud platform with a powerful data and insights platform; it is also the merge of passions of two companies looking to move mountains for customers through a deep partner ecosystem, with the ultimate goal of enabling your business transformation delivered at the speed of light.
There is an enormous amount of energy and enthusiasm about the possibilities for what Movere and Microsoft can do together to continue to bring deeper value (and data!) to customers and partners alike. Best of all, we get to do it with you. I can’t wait.
