One of Europe’s fastest growing public cloud providers, Nordcloud, has announced a new partnership with Microsoft Azure, with the aim of accelerating “the spread of AI across the continent”.

Nordcloud has previously assisted its customers on AI projects in several instances, with the firm having used Microsoft Azure to do so in these ventures.

“Nordcloud has already delivered AI projects for its clients,” says Microsoft’s Cloud and Enterprise Business Lead Antti Alila. “This is important to stress: AI is here and now and helping businesses innovate and gain a competitive edge.”

In addition to Alila’s comments, a recent report from McKinsey shows that firms who adopt AI early gain a significant competitive advantage over others who fail to embrace it.

“Of the more than 3000 customers McKinsey surveyed only one in five is using AI” says Nordcloud’s CEO Jan Kritz. “Fewer than one in ten is using machine learning, which is the area seeing the greatest investment into AI. Moreover, it’s the bigger companies that are investing most readily.”

Microsoft Azure compliments Nordcloud’s ambitions well, largely due to the platform’s ability to provide services for the likes of AI, machine learning and IoT development – something that will now be offered to Nordcloud customers.

By leveraging the Azure platform, Nordcloud aims to become a leading provider of AI-based services, enabling its customers to gain access and insight into the vast potential of emerging technologies and digital solutions.
