The two companies are working to integrate the market-leading Avaya IX Contact Center platform with Azure. The new Avaya IX CCaaS offering is anticipated to be available with voice capabilities in the first half of 2020, with omnichannel features (video, social media, live chat and others) to follow later that year.
“Through our work with Avaya, Microsoft now has the opportunity through our marketplace to offer enterprise-grade CCaaS solutions to businesses of any size delivered through Avaya and running on our Azure cloud,” said Sherif Tawfik, Executive Director, Channel, Alliances, Startups, and SMEs. “At Microsoft, it is our mission to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more. Every application that makes its home in our intelligent cloud takes us a step more down that road.”
Zeus Kerravala, Principal Analyst at ZK Research, said: “The contact center market continues to evolve quickly putting pressure on organizations of all sizes. The cloud offers companies a fast path to a modernized, Omni-channel solution. However, one size does not fit all when it comes to cloud contact center.
The partnership between Microsoft Gulf and Avaya is ideally suited to meet the needs of mid and large size organizations that seek a hybrid cloud that provides the economics of CCaaS combined with the control and security of private cloud
