Avanade was born as a joint venture company between Microsoft and Accenture in 2000 - the middle of the dot.com boom. Many companies started with high hopes and fizzled, but we’re still here a globally renowned technology consultancy and word-class specialist the Microsoft ecosystem.

Our enthusiasm for each other and our work has and continues to take us pretty far. Avanade has 32,000 Microsoft certifications and we’ve been named Microsoft Alliance SI Partner of the Year 17 times. Greater than our credentials is our impact. We’re working with an energy company to repopulate coral reefs, and we developed an AI chatbot to provide instant answers to tax questions for a leading engineering company. And, in the early days of COVID, a couple of employees took it upon themselves to create an app that helped track ventilators across stretched healthcare systems.
