The Avanade Story

Alone, innovation offers potential. But when the power of people meets the Microsoft ecosystem, we can change everything. At Avanade, we redefine workplaces and reimagine the possibilities of life.

When bold thinking meets passionate people, we empower companies on their journey to a digital workplace. We help Delta enable its employees to work in new ways and we give educational organizations like Open Universities Australia the power to understand what the future looks like. When new technologies meet optimistic people, we can reimagine what's possible in our time and bring it to life every day.

When innovation meets inspiration, we empower the next generation, bring diverse perspectives to our clients and open new opportunities for young people and their communities across the globe.

Our focus on technology drives us to create change every day. Our shared desire to make a genuine human impact inspires us. Our constant mission is to inspire and delight clients today, tomorrow, and in the years to come.

When we innovate with passion and purpose, deliver with excellence, act with integrity and respect and believe that everyone counts, when we bring together technology and human ingenuity, we change things for the better. For him, for her, for you. That’s Avanade. That’s #HumanImpact.
