The partnership with Microsoft will support Terragon’s vision of using innovation to make mobile meaningful while also helping businesses on the continent to harness the power of cloud technology.

“We evolved into an enterprise solution company in 2018, and since then we’ve worked with a wide spectrum of over 30 multi-national enterprises and 8,000 SMBs, helping them achieve better ROI on their marketing spend and improving customer experience through the power of data-driven marketing,” says Chimezie Okonkwo, Senior Vice President of Data, Infrastructure, and Platforms at Terragon. “This Microsoft partnership is exciting because it validates our mission which has been to build the largest data-powered marketing cloud ecosystem in Africa.
