Vodafone NZ and Umbrellar have created a strategic partnership alongside Microsoft to target digital transformation services.

Vodafone CEO Jason Paris said the partnership will deliver real value and uplift for Kiwi companies.

“We are seeing an exponential increase in local New Zealand enterprises harnessing the power of cloud services to deliver real value to the business,” he said.

“As Vodafone continues to execute its digital strategy, we are delighted to partner with Umbrellar to provide our business customers access to leading cloud solutions that are driving innovation and business growth throughout the country.”

Umbrellar Group CEO Michael Foley reflected on the new combination of the three companies.

“The recent acquisition of Vodafone by Infratil and Brookfield unleashes New Zealand’s leading telco to drive relevant business solutions, and Microsoft’s global transformation to an open and partner-centric organisation at hyperscale is nothing short of remarkable. 

"Put those two front-foot strategies together with Umbrellar’s born in the cloud approach to cloud adoption and leverage and the possibilities are genuinely exciting.”

Umbrellar’s head of cloud, Dave Howden, says the partnership will see the best of both worlds brought together for Kiwi companies.

“Vodafone’s strengths in telecommunications, mobility and modern workplace combined with our deep understanding of the Microsoft Azure platform and the needs of New Zealand companies mean together we can deliver solutions that are right for the New Zealand market," he said.
