Thursday 18 July 2019 | 09:00 CET | News
AT&T has struck another major deal in the IT sector. After IBM, the operator has partnered with Microsoft to expand its cloud operations, both within the company and for customers. Microsoft will be the preferred cloud provider for non-network applications, as part of AT&T's broader public cloud first strategy, and will support AT&T as it consolidates its data centre infrastructure and operations. The companies will also develop joint services, focusing on edge computing and 5G developments.
