Computing

MTN Business has unveiled a new cloud delivery platform in Nigeria, which will enable SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises) access cloud services with greater ease.

The applications on the MTN Business Cloud Services platform range from Security, Storage and Backup to Email Marketing, Contacts Management and Accounting applications.

MTN Executive, Amina Oyagbola, said, “The launch of this cloud service is a step in the right direction. It translates to facilitating greater ease of doing business for SMEs whose role in creating employment and empowering people cannot be overemphasized in emerging economies like Nigeria. According to the World Bank, SMEs have been recognised as a key sector in local economies, particularly in emerging markets, where formal SMEs contribute up to 45% of total employment and up to 33% of GDP.”

Based on a survey by SMEDAN (Small & Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria), there are over 37 million SMEs across Nigeria. Cloud platforms therefore represent a veritable means to drive technological inclusion in this critical sector.
