MTN Business Cloud Services Launched In Nigeria


MTN Business has unveiled a new cloud delivery platform in
Nigeria, which will enable SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises)
access cloud services with greater ease.
The applications on the MTN Business Cloud Services platform
range from Security, Storage and Backup to Email Marketing,
Contacts Management and Accounting applications.
MTN Executive, Amina Oyagbola, said, “The launch of this cloud
service is a step in the right direction. It translates to facilitating
greater ease of doing business for SMEs whose role in creating
employment and empowering people cannot be overemphasized in
emerging economies like Nigeria. According to the World Bank,
SMEs have been recognised as a key sector in local economies,
particularly in emerging markets, where formal SMEs contribute up
to 45% of total employment and up to 33% of GDP.”
Based on a survey by SMEDAN (Small & Medium Enterprises
Development Agency of Nigeria), there are over 37 million SMEs
across Nigeria. Cloud platforms therefore represent a veritable
means to drive technological inclusion in this critical sector.
Onyinye Ikenna-Emeka, General Manager, Enterprise Marketing,
lauded the benefits of the service; “We believe that SMEs are
invaluable to the growth of the Nigerian economy. That is why this
platform was developed to address some of the challenges
experienced by our SME customers, in particular. At MTN
Business, we are aware that to enable the growth of this key
sector, easier access to solutions such as cloud, that drive
efficiency and lower costs is vital.”
Speaking further on the Business Cloud service which was also
recently deployed in Rwanda and Cameroun, Ikenna-Emeka said,
“We are pleased that this service, represents a move that
empowers SMEs to control their spend and usage. Through this
service, SMEs can choose from a range of applications,
subscribing to chosen applications when and wherever they want
without paying for the total cost of the applications. This way spend
is kept manageable. These business applications can be accessed
from anywhere at anytime and compete favourably with other world
class cloud platforms”.
MTN Business Cloud Services will be denominated in local
currency thereby making payment easy and services more
affordable. The roll out of the platform in other MTN markets is set
for the end of the year.
