Microsoft praised small businesses across Kuwait on their adoption of cloud services to further the nation’s ongoing digital transformation. The company has leveraged the progress made nationwide in the adoption of global best practices, with solutions providers such as Future Communications Company having received certified recognition by Microsoft for their ongoing efforts as Cloud Solution Provider and Gold Enterprise Resource Planning partner.
“Thriving SME sectors across the GCC have played major roles in growing non-oil GDPs and are making impressive inroads in supporting knowledge-based economies,” said Charles Nahas, General Manager, Microsoft Kuwait. “As Kuwait’s SME are acquiring the muscle to be competitive, Cloud services are the perfect way for them to cast off the shackles of scale and operate like global players.
Nahas spoke of the maturity and readiness of the Kuwaiti cloud services market, as national providers adopt international best-practice standards.
Earlier this year, Microsoft certified Future Communications Company based in Kuwait as Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider and Gold ERP Partner. Future Communications Company can now offer end-to-end cloud solutions to manage business processes in public, private and hybrid clouds, or on premises.
“Future Communications Company takes this Microsoft certification as validation of the skill and commitment of our people when serving customers across Kuwait,” said Salah Al Awady, Founder and CEO, Future Communications Company.
“Small businesses in particular have so much to gain from migrating their digital infrastructure to the cloud. Business efficiency and competitive advantage invariably follow such transformations and we look forward, in our role as Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider and Gold Enterprise Resource Planning Partner, to continue to tell that story to customers.”
“For organisations throughout the region, cloud is becoming a formidable tool allowing companies to focus on their core business while increasing resource optimisation and speed to market” Nahas added. “Microsoft has invested heavily in the infrastructure and talent needed to support our customer digital transformation journey. We are delighted to move forward with leading partners like Future Communications Company, and offer SMEs across Kuwait the best in cloud solutions, to make their businesses the very best they can be.
Future Communications Company specialists in managed cloud hosting talk customers through the adoption, deployment and optimisation of the latest technologies.
Microsoft’s Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions competency recognises partners that offer Microsoft Office 365 cloud and hybrid solutions to SME customers.
Kuwait, according to BMI research, is set for a compound annual growth of 1.4% to reach a national IT spend of $1.1 billion by 2020, with $407 million going to the service segment. Growth in the country’s software and services sales suggests a mass move to cloud.Click below to share this article
