Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT), Microsoft and Asia’s leading IT solutions company Datacraft have joined forces to provide local businesses the benefits of more powerful software applications for the emerging trend in business cloud-computing.
“This partnership allows us to really serve our customers better as this provides best-of-class and high quality services and solutions that are available today,” said PLDT senior vice president Eric R. Alberto.
Cloud-computing is network-based computing, where software, data storage and other resources are provided over a shared network. It allows users to access their company’s business applications securely through the cloud.
PLDT and Microsoft recently signed a Service Provider Licensing Agreement, allowing PLDT to distribute cloud-based Microsoft Software Services in the country whereas Datacraft will provide the necessary infrastructure and support for the project.
Through PLDT, Microsoft business applications are made even more accessible for local business use. Companies will be given the option to implement the cloud-based versions of the Microsoft applications within their businesses in a full or partially-private managed scheme, or via a fully-hosted cloud-delivered model.
