Dubai: G42 and Microsoft signed a Memorandum of Understanding to explore joint business development and marketing opportunities across sectors such as healthcare, energy, public sector digital transformation, financial services and climate action, the companies said on Monday.

The alliance will leverage Microsoft’s partner ecosystem and cloud capabilities, and the solutions will help UAE organisations better address citizen and customer needs.

Naim Yazbeck, General Manager of Microsoft UAE, commented: ”Organisations globally, especially in the public sector, are increasingly looking for customised cloud solutions that offer additional choice and flexibility. I am very excited about the potential that a collaboration with G42 could bring to the UAE, and I look forward to combining Microsoft’s focus on resiliency, agility and security with G42s unique capabilities and vision.”

Kiril Evimov, G42’s Group CTO and Chairman of G42 Cloud, commented: “G42 is keen to work closely with Microsoft to create a joint value proposition that can not only serve common customers better, but importantly, spur innovation and deliver agility for the technical community in the UAE and the region. The broad set of solutions that G42 and our clients have developed, will benefit from the rich ecosystem and global scale that Microsoft provides. Microsoft will similarly benefit from the experience and technical know-how of operating regulated workloads across multiple industries that G42 Cloud is focused on.”

Both companies will be working in the coming months to finalise the development required to ensure regulatory compliance in order to serve customers in the market.
