Nordics services firm Atea has announced a strategic partnership with Microsoft for the supply of Azure hybrid cloud services in the region. When Microsoft opens two new Azure data centres in Norway this fall, Atea will be Microsoft’s first strategic partner to provide cloud services in the region.
Atea has 7,400 employees and says it is present in 87 cities in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. It had revenue of around NOK 35bn (€3.48bn) in 2018 and is listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange. As in most countries and markets there is a shortage of specialist competence in supporting customers who want to adopt hybrid cloud services. Atea has committed itself to help address this shortage by placing “several hundred consultants” through a cloud services training programme in collaboration with Microsoft.
