BT and Microsoft announced a new strategic partnership to accelerate innovation across enterprise voice, cybersecurity and industry-focused services in sectors from digital manufacturing to health, setting businesses in the UK and worldwide back to growth.

BT has already been named one of the first development partners for Microsoft Operator Connect and Operator Connect Conferencing. The renewed agreement will allow BT to build on this relationship and offer its own branded global managed voice services directly through Microsoft Teams, with an approach that further enhances customer experience and creates new growth opportunities.

The strategic partnership will build on BT’s existing portfolio of cybersecurity services built on Microsoft technology. It will see the companies push forward with the design and launch of a new generation of managed security services to enable and protect the modern collaborative workplace.

Sustainability and collaboration on digital skills are integral to the partnership. BT and Microsoft will further enhance sustainability credentials within their supply chains and join forces on promoting digital skills in the communities.

Omar Abbosh, Corporate Vice President of industry solutions at Microsoft, said: “The partnership announced today by Microsoft and BT is just the start of an exciting, shared journey of innovation and collaboration that will shape the future of telecoms. BT can use Microsoft’s cutting-edge tools to develop new communications services that meet the needs and demands of today’s customers. By aligning our visions for communication, connectivity, security and digital technology, Microsoft and BT will support real growth for businesses across the world.”

Bas Burger, CEO of Global at BT, said: “BT and Microsoft are at the forefront of innovation in global digital platforms and connectivity that will take technology and communication beyond limits. This partnership will ensure all of Microsoft’s solutions work ‘Best on BT’ and support both companies’ commitments to improving digital skills in the community.”
