Microsoft has continued to develop its relationship with financial services company Suncorp in a further three- year deal as part of its multi-cloud strategy.

Avanade, along with a number of Microsoft partners, will be leading the charge in Suncorp’s ambition to increase its Azure cloud footprint while winding down its on-premises data centres. 

Under its multi-cloud strategy, Suncorp aims to migrate 90 per cent of workloads to the cloud by the end of 2023. 

The remaining applications will be relocated to new colocation sites in Sydney, ready to exit their data centres by January 2024.

“Suncorp’s cloud journey started in 2013 and today 65 per cent of our applications are in the cloud. We have chosen to partner with Microsoft to enable us to achieve our strategic transformation goals and innovation agenda,” Suncorp group executive general manager of IT infrastructure Charles Pizzato said.
