Amazon to Spend Over $1 Billion on Microsoft 365 Licenses

Amazon Employees Are Going to be Working in Microsoft’s Cloud

“As Business Insider reports, Amazon’s employees currently use on an on-premise version of Microsoft Office, but a transition to Microsoft’s cloud-based 365 suite is planned.
The scale of the transition is huge, with Amazon requiring over a million seat licenses.

The internal document, combined with comments from a person familiar with the situation who asked not to be identified, reveal the move from on-premise to cloud-based 365 apps will begin in November with an initial setup phase. Amazon employees will then transition over in early 2024.”
