Reliance Jio and Microsoft have entered into a long-term alliance to offer a set of solutions comprising connectivity, computing, storage solutions etc to create more affordable offerings for Indian SMBs, startups and large enterprises while also adding capabilities to Reliance Industries’ ecosystem.
Sanchit Vir Gogia, chief executive at Greyhound Research explained how Microsoft can leverage Jio’s base, scale and salesforce in the country to navigate through local regulations and reach out effectively to the Indian enterprises.
“This is a partnership of convenience and a partnership of equals. But it’s good for Microsoft to have a strategic partner like Jio so that if there are any regulatory changes, the business doesn’t get impacted,” Gogia shared.
However, Gogia said that the telco will have to invest towards ensuring a multi-cloud environment which is going to be absolutely critical since enterprises are looking for multi-cloud access.
