Microsoft in talks to sign on Amazon as customer in $1 bln cloud tools deal – Insider

Microsoft is preparing to bring on board as a customer for its 365 cloud productivity tools in a deal worth over $1 billion, according to a report by news site Insider. The report cites an internal document and a person familiar with the matter. Amazon has committed to the amount for over five years and plans to secure more than one million Microsoft 365 license seats.

Following the report, Microsoft’s shares gained nearly 1% in extended trading. However, both Microsoft and Amazon declined to comment on the matter when approached by RushHourDaily.

According to the report, Amazon is expected to start setting up the new systems in early November. Currently, the company uses a local, on-premise version of Microsoft’s Office products.
