Our heritage

The early 2000s were an exciting time for IT. Digital technology was transforming our lives, and with each innovation, it became clear that digital was the future.

Avanade was born into this pioneering time. Created in April 2000 by two industry giants – Accenture and Microsoft – Avanade had one goal: deliver innovative services and solutions to enterprises worldwide using the Microsoft platform.
