Microsoft Azure products will become more accessible to local businesses in Malta following a strategic partnership between Microsoft and BMIT Technologies, which incorporates BMIT Limited and Kinetix IT Solutions Limited.
This partnership enables a host of new services to customers, including the possibility to purchase Microsoft’s Azure services directly from BMIT.
The formal announcement of the strategic partnership was made during a workshop event organised by Microsoft for several gaming companies in collaboration with the Malta Gaming Authority and EY.
“The strategic partnership is the positive outcome of our discussions between Microsoft and BMIT, always with the scope of bringing together Microsoft as a worldwide leader in cloud services and BMIT, whom we consider as one of Malta’s leading IT and cloud managed services provider, perfectly able and equipped to drive cloud-based innovation among Maltese businesses,” said Peggy Antonakou, Microsoft’s CEO for Greece, Cyprus and Malta.
Christian Sammut, CEO of BMIT, added that this strategic partnership will create additional synergies between BMIT Technologies and Microsoft: “We already enable a good number of organisations by leveraging our local infrastructure and our expertise to deliver a variety of cloud-based scenarios including public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructure and productivity solutions.
"This closer collaboration will take such efforts to a new level, allowing us to deliver a broader range of emerging technologies based on Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Office 365 to both our Malta-based and international customers.”
