Airtel Uganda Partners With Microsoft To Provide Cloud Services To Ugandan Businesses

One of Uganda’s biggest telecommunications company, Airtel Uganda, has entered a partnership with Microsoft’s official cloud partner MC3. The partnership intends to provide Microsoft Office 365 services to businesses in Uganda.

Customers will be enabled access to Microsoft Cloud services in a bid to help them improve business operations. It will also be a way of improving the security of business data and information.

Microsoft 365 is a cloud-based productivity tool designed to help organizations meet online productivity goals. It does this while maintaining the required security parameters.

According to Allan Ssemakula, the Airtel Uganda Enterprise Business director, Airtel will provide high-speed internet while Microsoft provides cloud services. Therefore, business customers will have access to Microsoft Cloud Services on the go.

“This collaboration will be instrumental in driving the penetration of Microsoft’s productivity solutions in the Ugandan market, an addition to its global presence in other markets like Zambia, Congo Brazzaville as it expands to more Airtel operators,” he said.

Officials said the data of the employees, customer information and personal data will be protected.

“Our partnership with Airtel Uganda is intended to give the end user the best experience while using Microsoft services. And Airtel’s 4G connectivity creates the desired platform that aids improved communication, plus information security for both business and personal use,” said Patrick Okello the Regional Sales Manager at MC3.

Officials noted there is a comprehensive plan to ensure SMEs and all other businesses are taught how to use Microsoft cloud services.
