stc group, an engine of digital transformation, announced the expansion of its strategic partnership with Microsoft to further advance its digitalization and drive innovation across Saudi Arabia.

As part of the partnership, the organizations will jointly develop and deploy cutting-edge solutions that will transform and empower organizations across various industries, while enabling small businesses to grow and thrive in the digital economy, according to a press release by stc.

"Our strategic partnership with Microsoft marks a defining moment in the history of digital transformation potential for both stc group and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” said stc group CEO Olayan Alwetaid. “This collaboration isn't just about technology; it's about promoting a future where Saudi Arabia is at the forefront of global innovation, setting the standard for what's possible in the digital age. Together with Microsoft, we will work to bring the latest technologies to Saudi Arabia and help businesses of all sizes to embrace digital transformation, advance economic diversification, and create a more vibrant and prosperous future for our country.”

Unlocking Digital Transformation Potential

The collaboration between the organizations, the release said, aims to enable stc’s subsidiaries to explore new markets, develop disruptive business models, and bring innovative products and services to market. By jointly developing and deploying the latest advanced technologies, the partnership aims to support high-quality, safe, and secure digital experiences for businesses across the Kingdom.

The alliance will also serve as an innovation powerhouse, powering the transformation of industries from the Kingdom to the world.

“We are excited about this next phase in our journey with stc. Our aim is to empower businesses of all sizes and industries with tailored digital solutions that enable them to innovate and solve their unique challenges to drive equitable business growth,” said President Microsoft EMEA Ralph Haupter.

Bringing stc group’s local and regional channels together with Microsoft’s partner and developer ecosystem, the partnership will create a virtuous circle of deployment of new baseline services that enable partner-led innovation, which in turn generates demand.

In addition, by focusing efforts on skills development and helping to digitize the “non-digitalized,” the alliance aims to make the benefits of innovation inclusive and sustainable.
