Software producers Microsoft and Oracle will form a partnership to make cloud services more accessible in Poland, the companies have said.
The partnership is an extension of a 2019 agreement between the two firms on close collaboration on an integrated cloud platform for Polish customers.
The cloud technical alliance will allow the use of cross-cloud solutions across Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud by Polish enterprises, financial institutions and public entities at a single point of service, according to a press release from Microsoft.
This enhanced collaboration will reduce integration costs for customers and eliminate any disruption caused by a migration to the cloud, the statement added.
Polish customers will be able to combine cloud services such as analytics or artificial intelligence available under Oracle Cloud and Microsoft Azure with the cloud database services of both vendors, in particular - with the Oracle Autonomous Database.
The CEO of Oracle Polska, Tomasz Bochenek, quoted in the press release, said that the Polish market "is becoming increasingly mature and after a rather long phase of careful approach to cloud technologies, it has recently started to clearly catch up."
In May 2020, Microsoft signed an agreement with Poland's National Cloud Operator, thanks to which a regional technology hub will be created in Poland, the company's first data processing region in Central and Eastern Europe. The investment is to be worth USD 1 billion.
According to the CEO of the Polish branch of Microsoft, Mark Loughran, the development of a Polish Digital Valley will help Poland’s economy and strengthen the country’s economic resilience by providing intelligent cloud solutions, big data processing power and compliance with regulations.
