G42 Cloud Collaborates With Microsoft To Explore Acceleration Of UAE's Digital Transformation
Microsoft and G42 announced their plans to work together on the creation of industry- and public-sector-focused solutions that take advantage of Microsoft's partner ecosystem and cloud capabilities. Organizations in the UAE will benefit from these solutions as they satisfy consumer and citizen needs.
The agreement, which was formalised in a memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed at G42's offices, will enable both organisations to further investigate cooperative business development and marketing opportunities across the range of industries G42 serves, including healthcare, energy, public sector digital transformation, financial services, climate action, and beyond. Microsoft and G42 Cloud will collaborate closely to enable the development and deployment of shared solutions in a secure manner and in accordance with legal standards.
Naim Yazbeck, General Manager of Microsoft UAE commented, "Organisations globally, especially in the public sector, are increasingly looking for customised cloud solutions that offer additional choice and flexibility. I am very excited about the potential that collaboration with G42 could bring to the UAE, and I look forward to combining Microsoft's focus on resiliency, agility, and security with G42s unique capabilities and vision."
Kiril Evimov, G42's Group CTO and Chairman of G42 Cloud commented, "G42 is keen to work closely with Microsoft to create a joint value proposition that can not only serve common customers better but importantly, spur innovation and deliver agility for the technical community in the UAE and the region. The broad set of solutions that G42 and our clients have developed, will benefit from the rich ecosystem and global scale that Microsoft provides. Microsoft will similarly benefit from the experience and technical know-how of operating regulated workloads across multiple industries that G42 Cloud is focused on."
In order to service clients in the market, both businesses will be working over the next few months to complete the development necessary to ensure regulatory compliance.
