What’s the urgency?
The global Covid-19 crisis accelerated digital experience demands at least five years. For example, shoppers, business buyers, employees, partners who were slow to go “all in” on digital before, now demand a digital experience personalised just for them. Today’s digital experiences must be content centric, commerce capable and context driven, and time to value has never been more critical.
Episerver’s 2020 survey of 600 global B2B leaders indicates “rising digital expectations” is the top external threat facing their business. Speed, scale and business intelligence are how to meet the threat of being Amazon-ed out and the keys to growing revenue through relationships.
“Together Avanade and Episerver empower growing companies to compete digitally through smart and scalable solutions delivered at speed.

Adapting to the cloud age
In an independent study by Forrester Consulting, commissioned by Episerver, Forrester Consulting found the primary value drivers of Episerver to include:
- Episerver provides the ability for the composite to build-once, use multiple times. Effort required to produce new webpages is reduced by 50% at a minimum on Episerver.
- Digital assets are shared for use between informational content pages, digital commerce pages, and marketing campaigns.
- Coding is minimalised and in fact allows creatives and content producers to deploy content into production. Developers are instead able to reallocate their efforts to enhancing or building out new functionality on web properties.
One of the top reasons for the triple-digit gains made by customers is Episerver’s partnership with Microsoft. Episerver, as a .NET platform SaaS offering hosted on Microsoft Azure, results in sizeable savings, security, speed and scalability.
Faster time to value with Azure
Episerver chooses Microsoft Azure to support its Customer-Centric Digital Experience Platform, using Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) as the orchestration engine for high-availability multitenant microservices and Azure App Service for easily scalable web app deployment.
“We’ve found Azure to be a highly scalable solution space that allows us to easily enable features and rapidly roll out capabilities. We look to Avanade to provide premier Azure services to our joint customers. We looked at other solutions, but Azure offered us hosting designed for our workload and unparalleled support—giving us a much faster time to value than we found elsewhere.”
