Mi­crosoft Azure prod­ucts will be­come more ac­ces­si­ble to lo­cal busi­nesses fol­low­ing a strate­gic part­ner­ship be­tween Mi­crosoft and BMIT Tech­nolo­gies, which in­cor­po­rates BMIT Lim­ited and Kinetix So­lu­tions Lim­ited. This part­ner­ship will en­able 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 cloud­based in­no­va­tion among Mal­tese busi­nesses,” said Peggy An­ton­akou, Mi­crosoft’s CEO for Greece, Cyprus and Malta.

Ex­press­ing his sat­is­fac­tion at this im­por­tant de­vel­op­ment, 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.”

“Our agree­ment with BMIT forms part of this com­mit­ment to work and col­lab­o­rate closely with trusted and re­spon­si­ble part­ners so that they can ap­ply the right tech­nolo­gies that help the com­mu­nity achieve eco­nomic and so­cial pros­per­ity,” added An­ton­akou.
