Malaysia’s Celcom partners with Microsoft for cloud solution offering

Celcom Axiata Berhad (Celcom), one of Malaysia’s largest telecommunications service providers, has partnered with Microsoft to introduce a brand new cloud service offering for enterprises in Malaysia.

The Celcom Cloud suite focuses on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings, and combines features for applications, infrastructure, data storage, software network, security, and a seamless deployment experience for businesses to scale their operations efficiently.

Idham Nawawi, CEO of Celcom, said that the collaboration with Microsoft will further elevate the company’s status as a trusted digital solutions provider for businesses of all sizes in Malaysia.

“From smaller brick and mortar businesses to larger enterprises, Celcom will always strive towards providing a ‘win-win-win’ situation, creating a sustainable digital ecosystem and benefit the rakyat (people) and country,” he added.

Celcom’s new Cloud Suite offering also comes at a time where digital transformation to a cloud-based infrastructure is crucial to running and maintaining a successful business, especially in a post-pandemic world.

A study by Microsoft and market research firm IDC revealed that 77% of business decision makers in Malaysia say that innovation is now a ‘must’ for them to respond quickly to new challenges and opportunities in the market.

“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,” said K. Raman, Managing Director of Microsoft Malaysia.

This new solution will be offered alongside Celcom’s other flagship digital kit, Celcom Business Suite.
