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.
