Middle-East based IT service provider Zain Kuwait have entered into a partnership with Microsoft to fasten the pace of cloud adoption in the U.A.E. As per the terms of the deal, Zain Kuwait will be facilitating small, medium and large enterprises in Kuwait with advanced cloud offerings to better engage their customers, empower their employees, optimize operations and transform their products and services.

According to Zain Kuwait, cloud has opened up great opportunities for enterprises of all shapes and sizes to provide end-to-end solutions. They believe that that U.A.E as a region has developed with respect to its IT capabilities and hence it is time to turn a new leaf as far as enterprise technology is concerned.

By joining hands with a tech giant like Microsoft, Zain Kuwait claim that they will boost customer engagement and employee satisfaction by leveraging their cloud products and services. They say that this alliance will allow them to provide 360-degree cloud solutions and build stronger relationships with cloud-native users in the market.

Eaman Al-Roudhan, Chief Executive Officer of Zain Kuwait, commented:

We are delighted to further expand our strategic partnerships with global technology leaders like Microsoft to enhance and reinforce the portfolio of innovative solutions and services we offer to our enterprise customers.

Enterprises are a central part of our country’s economic ecosystem, and we are committed to expanding our portfolio to help empower a more efficient business sector in Kuwait.

Zain claim that since most IT-enabled enterprises in the Middle East are also cloud-native, combining their cloud offerings with Microsoft’s to provide a merged and intelligent solution to accelerate cloud adoption will be easy.

Charles Nahas, General Manager, Microsoft Kuwait, commented:

The cloud opens up massive opportunities for our partners to combine their solutions with Microsoft’s cloud offerings and drive digital transformation in a seamless manner.

Zain Kuwait has been at the forefront of this transformation, and this partnership will accelerate its efforts by empowering them to provide end-to-end solutions to its customers, building stronger relationships and spur deeper engagement – enabling them to achieve more.

In closing, Zain said that this deal will further deepen their relationship with Microsoft. It will be interesting to see how Zain makes the most of this deal after Microsoft launched data centers in the Middle East and Germany to compete against the likes of Oracle, AWS and Alibaba.
