Microsoft Pakistan official for investing in advance tech
Abid Zaidi Country Manager, Microsoft Pakistan has said that now more than ever, academic and government leaders need to open their eyes to the need for learning, embracing and investing in advanced technologies, particularly the unprecedented opportunities that the cloud can bring.
While highlighting Pakistan’s digital transformation journey, he said that as businesses and organisations globally continue to embrace the onset of digital transformation, it has become increasingly evident that cloud adoption and policy must be top of mind and included in organisational strategies if true benefits are to be reaped,” he added.
He further said that Microsoft’s mission is to empower every person on the planet to achieve more, and embracing the cloud is a key part of bringing that vision to fruition for organisations of all sizes. Historically, many SME’s have had the challenge of not having the same access to resources and opportunities as larger organizations. Cloud computing helps break down this barrier by allowing small businesses to be increasingly agile, offer services more easily and be more reactive to customers. In contrast, large enterprises often face increasing pressure to reduce IT spending, improve security, meet new compliance standards and arm themselves with better big data tools. Cloud computing has the potential to aid them in addressing all these challenges.
