The Euskaltel Group and Microsoft have reached a strategic partnership agreement that gives the telecommunications operator a major role in the digital transformation of its corporate and institutional customers in the markets in which it operates. It will also help the group continue with its own internal digitisation process.
Under the agreement, Euskaltel and Microsoft will work together to identify innovative solutions based on cloud technologies, artificial intelligence, Big Data and the Internet of Things. Thanks to this collaboration, the Euskaltel Group (through Euskaltel in the Basque Country, R in Galicia and Telecable in Asturias) is set to become a benchmark for the application of these technologies, expanding its commercial offering for corporate (businesses, SMEs and large enterprises) and institutional customers.
Euskaltel’s CEO, Francisco Arteche, expressed his satisfaction with the agreement and believed it “is strategic for us since it will allow us to continue leading the digital transformation of companies and institutions in our markets in the Basque Country, Galicia and Asturias, increasing their competitiveness and giving them all the potential of cutting-edge technology and an innovative and technological ecosystem.”
Pilar López, President of Microsoft Ibérica, said: “This strategic alliance will allow us to work with the Euskaltel Group to identify scenarios for applying the most innovative technologies (including artificial intelligence, Big Data, machine learning and the Internet of Things) in the Group’s digital transformation and its offering to customers.”
With this strategic agreement, the Euskaltel Group aims to give its customers all the opportunities cloud computing has to offer to increase their competitiveness and make the most of a technological and innovative ecosystem. Even more so in an environment of technological development with a growing need to rely on new solutions and services that guarantee a fast, safe and effective response to market changes while continuing to guarantee availability, efficiency and quality, regardless of the organisation’s size.
