Why cloud marketplaces are important 

Cloud marketplaces play an essential role in modern business by providing streamlined access to diverse software solutions and simplifying procurement processes.  

According to’s 2023 State of Cloud GTM Report, the cloud marketplace landscape is expected to grow significantly, with software sales through these platforms projected to reach $15 billion in 2023 and $100 billion by 2026. This growth underscores the importance as a path to revenue transformation and a strategic, long-term commitment for companies.  

These platforms foster collaboration between vendors and customers, driving digital transformation and enhancing productivity. Furthermore, the integration capabilities they offer ensure secure and optimized cloud environments, which are crucial for maintaining a competitive edge in today's fast-paced market. 

"Wiz and Microsoft Azure share a dedication to enhancing customer success and maximizing the value derived from our solutions. The Microsoft Commercial Marketplace enables Wiz to achieve this, and our collaboration through the Marketplace ensures we continue to secure everything our customers develop and operate in the cloud."
