Lagos – Nigeria’s leading mobile network operator, MTN Nigeria, says it will officially beam its cloud brokerage services across parts of the country today. 

The cloud services, which will also go live in Ghana, targets small and medium enterprises (SMEs).  Four other major markets across Africa namely; South Africa, Cameroon, Cote d’ Ivoire and Uganda will come on stream later this month. 

MTN said in a statement the decision to launch the cloud services in Nigeria and Ghana was due to a highly successful trial period of the MTN Cloud pilot project in December last year. 

The pilot made MTN the first mobile network operator in Africa to adopt the Cloud Service Brokerage model.  Farhad Khan, executive for MTN’s Group Enterprise Business Unit says the response to the MTN Cloud trial was positive. 

“What the pilot project confirmed is that our offerings are on the mark. There is great appetite for ICT solutions that are relevant, customised and affordable.

“SMEs are looking to technology service providers such as MTN to bring them world-class tools that improve their business efficiencies. MTN Cloud offers exactly that.” 

MTN Cloud offers an impressive list of services.  As part of the trial,participating companies were offered access to Office Desktop, a cost-effective email and collaborative software, Mozypro, a back-up service for the effective management of files and servers, and Dialcom, an on-demand video conferencing offering.
