Odin Supports Automation of Azure Services through the Microsoft CSP Program

Service providers can now offer more Microsoft Azure services through Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider program.

Announced at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, Odin now supports automation of Azure services offered through the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program. Partners can manage the lifecycle of their own customers with direct provisioning, billing, and 24/7 support of Microsoft cloud services. When combined with on-premises Windows Azure Pack services, service providers can deliver a hybrid cloud offering based on Azure technologies.

By using Odin Service Automation, partners have already delivered more than 1.7 million Office 365 and Exchange business class email seats, according to the company. Leading service providers, including Cobweb, are already using Odin Service Automation to deliver Office 365 and other Microsoft cloud service through the CSP program. Now, Odin Service Automation is one of the first platforms available for partners to automate the end-to-end service delivery, customer management, and billing across Microsoft Azure services, Office 365, the Enterprise Mobility Suite, together with hundreds of other complementary Odin-enabled services.

“We are super happy and proud to be launching Azure for CSP at this event,” says Alex Danyluk, vice president of alliances and partner ecosystem at Odin. “At the keynotes that Microsoft just had, they said they just made the APIs available. Well, we’re making partners live with that solution simultaneously with the availability of the APIs, and that continues our long tradition of supporting the Microsoft ecosystem. Our partners can be confident that we will always deliver integrations with Microsoft cloud solutions as they come out or close to when they come out. We have done that for years.”

Advantages of Odin Service Automation for Azure in CSP include:

  • Unified and automated provisioning, billing, and customer management across services
  • Accelerated time to market with a plug-and-play CSP module that eliminates coding, integration, and service update complexity
  • Bundled Azure services with many other Microsoft offerings, including Office 365
  • Broad ecosystem of hundreds of complementary Odin-ready services from many other ISVs
  • Ability to automate and build value-added hybrid applications

“The Cloud Solution Provider program puts our partners at the center of the customer lifecycle with direct provisioning, billing, and support of Microsoft cloud services,” said Phil Sorgen, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. “Odin’s solutions empower partners to more quickly adopt CSP and begin to create differentiated offers for our mutual customers, while helping them on their cloud journey.”
