Three years ago, Microsoft chose the UAE as its first destination to create hyper-scale data centres in the region. Since then, Microsoft’s Azure locations in Dubai and Abu Dhabi have played a positive role in digital transformation across industries and proven themselves to be potent catalysts of economic growth.

A study by IDC predicts that the UAE Microsoft Cloud ecosystem, including partners and cloud-using customers, will generate new revenues of some US$27 billion over the next four years. The study also highlighted the impact of the UAE Microsoft Cloud on job creation. Some 69,000 are expected to be generated in the UAE by 2024, including 16,000 for skilled IT professionals. On top of that, Microsoft Cloud Society has already trained more than 300,000 IT professionals across MENA.

Since our 2019 launch, Microsoft’s UAE Cloud data centres, and their offerings through Azure, Microsoft 365 and Dynamics 365, have accelerated digital transformation while supporting the data residency, security and agility needs of organisations of all sizes, said Sayed Hashish, General Manager, Microsoft UAE.
