Softline and Microsoft Target Local Banks With Launch of Cloud Services


Moscow- based global IT solu­tions and service provider, Softline, is look­ing to sell its cloud secu­rity services to customers in Myanmar’s emerging financial sector, one of the company’s executives told an audience at its Yangon product launch.

Softline will be team­ing up with long-time partners US software gi­ant Microsoft to provide ICT and cloud solutions to local enterprises, par­ticularly banks who need security upgrades to their own cloud infrastructure which is vital for e-com­merce services.

“We will work together with Microsoft to provide cloud service to Myanmar users especially in the banking sector and we are already talking with local banks,” said Ilya Anzhi­ganov, managing director emerging markets South­east Asia of Softline.

Softline, which also works in licenced soft­ware distribution, will be promoting Microsoft soft­ware among businesses to limit the use of illegal ‘cracked’ versions of the software, which can com­promise their cyber secu­rity, the company said.

Softline International Myanmar was awarded an ICT service license from Myanmar Investment Commission in November 2016 and the company launched its operation in January this year.

“We don’t have experi­ence yet in the Myanmar market because we’ve just began in this emerging market but we are going to focus on cost effective­ness and quality service for users,” said Anzhi­ganov.

Softline operates across 80 cities in 30 coun­tries, particularly those in emerging markets and mainly focuses on public and private cloud solu­tions, end-to-end tech­nology solutions, software licensing and hardware products.
