Orckestra is proud to announce they have been recognized as a Canadian Cloud Leader by Microsoft Canada’s Cloud Society. The Microsoft Cloud Society recognizes top Canadian organizations who are early adopters of Microsoft Azure and are empowering Canadian businesses and governments to achieve more in a Mobile first, Cloud First world.

Orckestra recognized early on that their vision for unified commerce required a cloud platform, and that the Microsoft Azure cloud had the scalability, security and services that would allow large retailers to respond to rapidly-changing consumer buying behaviors. Consumers demand a consistent shopping and buying experience wherever they want to interact with the retailer—online, on mobile, in the store—and Orckestra’s Azure-based Unified Commerce platform allows retailers to meet these needs quickly and without “ripping and replacing” systems customers have depended on for years.

The Canadian Cloud Leader crystal was presented to Orckestra Inc. in September 2015. Orckestra Inc. was selected based on their continuous investment and commitment towards cloud leadership.

“Our Microsoft relationship is a special one for us. We greatly value the innovative Microsoft technology that allows us to differentiate ourselves from our competition, and are pleased to be recognized by Microsoft as a company that pushes the envelope to solve problems for our customers,” said Louis Fournier, President and CEO of Orckestra Inc.
