TELEKOM Malaysia Bhd has added Microsoft Corp’s Office 365, the cloud version of the US technology giant’s productivity suite, to its existing Office in a Box package.
The new and enhanced package would enable Malaysian SMEs (small and medium enterprises) to collaborate more effectively, TM said in a statement.
The newly launched Office in a Box with Microsoft Office 365 is a collaboration between the two companies which offers cloud-powered communications and Microsoft’s productivity suite through TM subsidiary VADS.
Malaysian SMEs can enjoy TM’s business-grade broadband connectivity, with speeds ranging from 1 Mbps to 4 Mbps and soon to be available, 8 Mbps, competitive call rates and special value-added services as well.
“Day by day, cloud computing is becoming essential for most of us,” said Azizi A. Hadi, executive vice president, SME, TM. “Many services that we use in our daily life are actually based in the cloud, such as web-based email and online file storage.”
“In Malaysia, SMEs now have started to realize the power of cloud computing technology,” he added. “We at TM see this as an opportunity to help SMEs expand their business.”
“TM’s position as Malaysia’s leading broadband provider makes it the ideal partner to help us bring the benefits of Office 365 to all Malaysian businesses,” said Faycal Bouchlaghem, general manager of Operator Channels at Microsoft Asia Pacific.
“Many businesses are beginning to realize the power of cloud computing technology – whether it is the ability to leverage IT capabilities more cost-effectively, creating new ways to serve new customers, or even operating a business without IT limits,” he added.
