Angola Cables launches cloud service
19 July 2019
Angola Cables, an Angolan multinational telecommunications company has launched Angola Cables Cloud Service to the African market.
The ‘Cloud as a Service’ platform was launched as a response to increasing demand from companies that operate across the African continent that are looking to innovate and improve their digital tools and capabilities. These companies also want to minimise software licensing and any other additional costs.
‘Cloud as a Service’ is aimed at tackling the challenges that companies are facing by delivering a different strategy that will improve business efficiencies and improve productivity, while at the same time reducing high expenses and complexities that come with the purchase and maintenance of IT infrastructure and hardware. Africa’s hunger for Cloud services, according to research called Cloud Africa 2018 conducted by World Wide Worx, is growing at an unprecedented rate. Some regions in Africa are not able to fully take advantage of Cloud services due to a slow internet connection and lack of internet access. Despite this, uptake in companies using Cloud services has more than doubled since 2013.
