Malaysia telco provider Celcom Axiata has rolled an enterprise-cloud service that focuses on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS), to accelerate digital adoption among local enterprises and businesses in Malaysia.
Celcom, in collaboration with Microsoft Malaysia, said the cloud service combines the tools and platform for applications, infrastructure, data storage, software network, security and seamless deployment experience with reliable site recovery advantages.
The service will also further reduce the need for additional IT resources, enhancing cost-effectiveness. It also facilitates remote working, as it is accessible to anyone within the enterprise, anywhere, anytime.
“Digital transformation is now more imperative than ever to thrive in today’s emerging cloud-first world. Based on a study by Microsoft and IDC, 77% of business decision-makers in Malaysia say that innovation is now a ‘must’ for them to respond quickly to market challenges and opportunities,” said K. Raman, Managing Director of Microsoft Malaysia.
“This is part of our long-term partnership to empowering Malaysia’s enterprises and businesses, both small and large. Having the right digital partners to facilitate digital transformation is crucial, and together with Celcom we look forward to accelerating the digital transformation of Malaysian organisations, leveraging the synergetic relationship between the tech and telco industries,” he added.
Celcom and Microsoft are also collaborating in other initiatives, such as Celcom’s internal processes enhancement, as well as expansion plans for consumer products and services, including cloud services offering.
