PepsiCo has entered into a five-year partnership with Microsoft to accelerate product innovation, meet rising customer demands and create new consumer experiences. 

As part of the new agreement, Microsoft will become PepsiCo’s preferred cloud provider to accelerate its infrastructure, enterprise resource planning, and data estate consolidation and modernisation.

“As a global leader in convenient food and beverages, our commitment to the timely delivery of PepsiCo products has never been more important,” said Seth Cohen, chief information officer at PepsiCo. “Through our partnership with Microsoft, we aim to improve service delivery capabilities to meet rising demand for essential goods while driving new innovations to make our operations and workforce stronger and more resilient for the future.”

PepsiCo will roll out Microsoft 365 and Teams to its 270,000 employees worldwide. Microsoft says that “Microsoft Azure will provide PepsiCo with greater agility and the ability to derive new insights from its data estate to fuel product innovations, customer intimacy and sustainability goals”.

“Our partnership with PepsiCo applies Azure and artificial intelligence capabilities to the ever-changing supply chain and retail landscape in new and exciting ways,” said Deb Cupp, an enterprise business lead at Microsoft. “ By migrating PepsiCo’s global data estate and SAP landscapes to Azure, we’ll be able to help PepsiCo drive efficiencies from farmer to consumer. We’re also pleased to deliver Microsoft 365 to PepsiCo’s associates worldwide as part of this partnership. Mobile communication and collaboration for PepsiCo’s workforce will be one of the keys to realising the value Microsoft brings.”
