Liquid Telecom in partnership with Microsoft has hosted over 200 business and IT experts who had pertinent questions about moving to the cloud.
This was during the Azure Accelerator Conference that was held at the Innovations Village in Ntinda, a Kampala suburb. It aimed at improving and accelerating the use of cloud services across Africa.
Hassan Mwangi, the Solutions Manager for Liquid Telecom said Azure Cloud will bring intelligence to the market, with no need to purchase additional hardware. Users will only pay for what they use and need no secondary site resource costs.
“Azure cloud comes with reduced complexity, increased compliance, simpler, security, flexibility and reliability,” Mwangi said.
The conference also introduced attendees to Azure and Azure Stack, which focused on topics such as digital transformation, cloud fundamentals and how to manage cloud IT resources.
Through informative talks and discussions, delegates learnt more about the business case for cloud, including business continuity and infrastructure modernization.
“Businesses in Uganda need to adopt a transformational mindset in order to succeed in today’s fast-paced digital economy,” said Hans Haerdtle, CEO, Liquid Telecom Uganda.
