“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.”

Mr. Naim Yazbeck, General Manager of Microsoft UAE commented that ”Organizations globally, especially in the public sector, are increasingly looking for customized cloud solutions that offer additional choice and flexibility. I am very excited about the potential that 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.”

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