Vodacom, the first telecommunications company in the market to launch with a full Microsoft Azure package earlier this year, is expanding its digital footprint with the launch of Microsoft Azure in KwaZulu-Natal today. The telco’s offering of the world’s top public cloud platform will bring with it expert professional services through a co-sell partnership with Microsoft for SAP Customers.
Microsoft Azure is an industry leading cloud platform that offers versatile, powerful and scalable solutions that are tailored for efficient business operations.
