MTN has taken a step towards the future by implementing Microsoft Office 365 and by moving a profusion of its services to Microsoft’s Azure Cloud Platform. This strategic move has upgraded the company’s possibilities at maximum since it is in place to run its applications faster and create a more secure office environment for its manpower.
Thanks to Microsoft’s updated Office version “Office 365” the personnel of the company is now liberated from their documents, able to take their office experience with them – across tablet, PC or phone – no matter where they are, whenever they need to get the work done. With security and reliability features at their best, Microsoft Office 365 is the only choice for Enterprises.
MTN’s CTIO Mr. Cosmas Adam stated: “The move to Office 365 has brought a lot of major benefits from higher productivity, lower costs and easier information sharing between employees. While running services on Azure increases operational effectiveness, and efficiency, it also lowers costs and provides a platform for new cloud-based services launched to our customers in the near future.”
“So, how could things get any better for MTN?” MTN found the answer for this question in the “cloud” and took another big step by shifting a profusion of its services on Microsoft Azure Cloud platform. A move that proved to be critical since Azure’s competitive advantages provide the efficiency and speed a company needs. Microsoft’s innovative platform enables testing and development procedures to be done in minutes, instead of weeks. As a result, the applications development is accelerated, business is growing faster and customer experience is improved. Benefits that also have a financial aspect, the cost minimization. There’s no coincidence that 80% of the companies that are listed in the “Fortune 500” as the world’s most profitable, are on the Microsoft cloud.
As the Enterprises Services Senior Manager of MTN Cyprus, Michel Kontou quoted: “By using Microsoft Azure cloud platform we are in place to provide error free and flawless sophisticated applications to our users.”
By leveraging Microsoft Azure, MTN Cyprus has also launched a new service through MTN Business. The service is Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute which offers businesses the flexibility, security and speed they need to secure their connection with Microsoft Azure. With the development of Microsoft Azure and ExpressRoute, MTN Business aspires to promote innovative services, with high availability, multiple levels of security that help increase productivity while maintaining operating business costs low.
