What is Azure Marketplace?

How to find the right add-in for SharePoint? Where can you buy it and can you make sure it’s right for your SharePoint version?   

If you’re looking for solutions to extend the capabilities of Microsoft Tools, you will find Microsoft’s official commerce platform: Azure Marketplace or Microsoft AppSource.  

Microsoft ensures that applications that extend Tools meet certain requirements. For this purpose, Azure Marketplace was created as a platform for Microsoft partners. Partners can present and offer their applications here as providers of independent software solutions.  

Available in more than 100 countries, Azure Marketplace makes it much easier for businesses, organizations and government agencies to buy applications.  

Who is the Azure Marketplace of interest to?

The platform is primarily of interest to developers, administrators and IT professionals. They can research and purchase solutions suitable for Microsoft tools on Azure Marketplace. The offering ranges from consulting and managed services to applications and extensions 

The offering on Azure Marketplace

Each solution offered on the platform has its own subpage. This contains all the necessary information such as the manufacturer, a detailed description, functional scope and even user manuals. This information is supplemented by user reviews and how-to videos 

Advantages of Azure Marketplace for providers

For IT solution providers, the benefits of the platform are significant: 

  • Verification and authentication as an official Microsoft partner 
  • Access to new markets   
  • Various marketing and sales opportunities  
  • Fast and secure transactions


The Azure Marketplace is a great solution for both application providers and companies looking for related solutions. It ensures that all tools offered have been extensively tested to meet Microsoft standards.
