Microsoft is determined to spread the use of cloud computing in Turkey, where a digital transformation has already begun in several sectors of the economy, said the tech giant's senior executive in the country.
"We give the highest priority to cloud computing due to the advancing technology. We believe that cloud computing is the technology of the future,” Murat Kansu, the head of Microsoft Turkey, said on Wednesday.
"Microsoft is one of the leading companies in cloud computing, and we're doing our best to make it widespread in Turkey."
Kansu said that for 25 years now the tech company has been trying to raise awareness among Turkish public and private institutions of the benefits of digital technology and software.
Cloud computing, in which users rely on remote, shared resources rather than local servers or devices, ensures a "great democratization" and is "very useful," he said, as it enables companies anywhere -- including those in Turkey -- to use the same technologies as in more developed countries.
"It provides great equality. It's also critical for us to go further," he said.
