In this eBook learn how the Microsoft & Icertis partnership is driving innovation.
Microsoft and Icertis have a long-standing 360-degree partnership right from its inception in 2009. Microsoft was the first customer and strategic partner of Icertis. Since then, Icertis and Microsoft have continued to strengthen their engagement by digitally transforming contracts from static documents into strategic business assets for leading companies all over the world. Working at the foundational technology, business strategy, and customer commercial levels, the joint goal is to drive innovation and help customers transform their businesses.
Built on Microsoft Azure, Icertis Contract Intelligence (ICI) delivers an intelligent, enterprise contract management solution to help customers accelerate their business performance, manage risk and compliance issues across geographies and teams, and optimize their commercial relationships.
ICI natively integrates with Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, and Microsoft AI to empower users to create, view, manage, and collaborate on contracts in the tools and applications they use every day. This ensures they have better access to critical information, enabling better decisions right within the enterprise application environment of their choice without losing productivity by switching applications.

When the COVID-19 situation began to unfold, Icertis began rapidly planning for their entire global workforce to transition to remote work. While the company had a robust business continuity plan in place, the entire workforce suddenly needing to work from home added a few complications that needed to be addressed:
Secure connections – Icertis was able to implement site-to-site and point-to-site VPN to secure remote access to resources and deliver a seamless end-user experience in less than one day.
Virtual computing – Azure Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) enabled high-bandwidth users to stay productive while home without connectivity or hardware limitations.
Seamless collaboration – The company fully transitioned to Microsoft Teams for all chats, meetings, calling, and collaboration. Icertis is reporting improvement in productivity, and most importantly, a seamless transition during challenging times.
