The Azure cloud platform will be utilized within the connectivity infrastructure of Jio, a move that coincides with the company’s strategy to focus on the cloud first. This partnership can result in cloud-based business applications, productivity, and collaboration to meet the needs of businesses of all shapes and sizes.

Jio’s own workforce will also have access to these services as part of the collaboration. At the same time, the Microsoft Azure cloud platform will house non-network applications.

According to Mukesh Ambani, these services of Microsoft will be available to startups at the price of a tenth what they ask everyone else to pay. Small to medium companies can have access for a cost from Rs. 15,000 to 20,000. Businesses with a larger size can have a customizable plan according to their needs.

IoT, AI, data analytics, and cognitive services are also more readily available and affordable to accelerate grassroots innovation and digital transformation in India.
