Odin Service Automation Azure CSP Solution: A Game Changer

IDC recently predicted that worldwide spending on public cloud services will reach over $141B (USD) in 2019. According to IDC research, SMBs plan to increase their cloud services spending from 35% in 2015 to 60% of their total IT spend in 2018.

Cloud is changing the game, and Odin and Microsoft partners are in a unique position to capitalize on this opportunity.

Microsoft Azure is one of the fastest growing cloud platforms. Azure provides partners with the opportunity to deliver a wide range of solutions, from reselling Azure services, to providing complete managed service offerings and unique bundles on top of Azure services.

With Odin, partners can capitalize on these new opportunities unlocked by Azure via the Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program, while owning the end-to-end customer lifecycle through the provisioning, billing, and support of Microsoft cloud services.

Odin Azure CSP solutions enable you to easily expand your portfolio with Azure through the Microsoft CSP program, and maximize profit by bundling Azure with your own value-added managed services. Odin enables you to sell Azure with your own offerings and third party services through an online storefront, and send invoices directly to customers. Additionally, it also allows your customers to monitor their resource consumption directly through an easy-to-use control panel.

The key capabilities and benefits of Odin Azure CSP include:

  • Automate end-to-end services orchestration, customer and reseller management, and billing for Azure in CSP.
  • Code-free with proven CSP APIs integration for Azure services.
  • Flexible pricing, promotion, and multi-currency enablement.
  • Direct billing to customers—supporting pay-as-you-go models.
  • Customer self-service: browse up to 6 months of detailed usage history and costs via a customer control panel.

The Odin Service Automation platform empowers you to accelerate your time-to-market and streamline with the automation of service orchestration, billing, and the end-to-end customer lifecycle management of Microsoft Azure services, in conjunction with other CSP services, partner-owned solutions, and third-party services from Odin’s APS catalog of over 500 solutions. Odin already empowers more than 2.2 million Office 365 and Hosted Exchange users worldwide through our platform.

“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.”
— Phil Sorgen, Corporate Vice President, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft
