Microsoft ties up with MCCIA to help SMBs in Maharashtra adopt cloud computing

Mahratta Chamber Of Commerce Industries & Agriculture (MCCIA), an apex industry body in Maharashtra, and Microsoft are joining hands to help small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs)  in the state adopt information technology and cloud computing to connect better with suppliers, distributors, government agencies and reach out to more customers across India.

Anant Sardeshmukh, director general, MCCIA, said, “In a competitive environment, businesses of all sizes must embrace technology if they are to transform and scale at a minimum cost. We believe that technology will drive the next wave of growth for organisations across Maharashtra. To this end, it is crucial to make technology more accessible for faster adoption.”



Manohar Hotchandani, director, business development, Microsoft India, said, “Technology unlocks opportunities for the small and mid-sized companies. At Microsoft, we strive to provide enterprise-grade cloud solutions for SMBs. By using cloud computing, businesses can focus on their core business priorities and not spend time building in-house IT infrastructure. . Our partners, like Genie InfoTech in Maharashtra, are helping SMBs make that transition to the cloud.”

Microsoft’s partners are gearing up to advice and guide SMBs in the state and help them through their cloud journeys.
