Microsoft plans to launch three cloud-based solutions for African businesses on Liquid Telcom’s network. Liquid Telecom is a pan-African telecommunications provider that operates the region’s largest independent fibre network, which spans over 40,000km across 12 countries.

Microsoft said it will offer fast and affordable cloud-based software offerings, Azure and Office 365. The two firms will also be creating “Business in a Box,” which will offer small-and-medium businesses a cloud-based toolkit of relevant applications, cloud services and connectivity.

This, the firms said, will enhance business potential.
