These Two Tech Giants Are Giving SMEs In Saudi A Big Boost


Saudi Arabian telecommunications services firm, Etihad Etisalat Co, which offers fixed line, mobile telephony and Internet services under the brand name Mobily, has signed a pact with Microsoft Arabia to provide Microsoft cloud service tools such as Office 365, Dynamics and Enterprise Security Suite, to Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in the country.

The agreement will enable Mobily to provide Microsoft solutions that enhance productivity, efficiency and security of SMEs, said Samir Mohammed Noman, president of Microsoft Arabia.

Microsoft cloud solutions facilitate use of productivity tools such as Office 365 by SMEs. The tool helps SMEs execute tasks quickly.

It offers a monthly subscription fee starting from SR 16 including support.

The cloud offerings help users exchange documents in a secure way and access computers that are working on Windows 10 or smartphones from any other operating system.

Microsoft aims to enhance the skills of SME staff to transfer small firms into a paper free environment by using Microsoft Cloud Solutions, it said.

The partnership is part of Microsoft’s commitment to enable individuals and establishments to achieve more at a time cloud computing is emerging as a key infrastructure requirement, Noman said.

Mobily and Microsoft Arabia have been maintaining a strategic partnership for a a while now and this collaboration seems to have helped Mobily establish a strong presence in the local market.

In June 2016, Microsoft said it will acquire LinkedIn Corp for $26.2 billion in the largest acquisition in its history, betting the professional social network can rev up the tech titan’s software offerings despite recent struggles by both companies.

Microsoft is expected to integrate LinkedIn into its enterprise services.
