Movere is a software as-a-service platform vendor that was founded in 2008. It's technology claims to provide discovery and assessment services to make cloud migrations easier for customers.
The Bellevue, Washington-based firm serves large corporations including AT&T, McDonalds, IBM and 21st Century Fox.
The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
In a blog post, Microsoft's Azure Management partner director, Jeremy Winter, said that the deal highlighted the firm's commitment to Azure.
"We're committed to providing our customers with a comprehensive experience for migrating existing applications and infrastructure to Azure, which include the right tools, processes, and programmes. As part of that ongoing investment, we're excited to welcome the leadership, talent, technology, and deep expertise Movere has built in enabling customers' journey to the cloud over the last 11 years," he said.
The deal marks Microsoft's 11th acquisition of 2019 so far, with its last M&A move coming last month for jClarity - a Java performance tuning tool.
