“With businesses increasingly moving to cloud-based solutions, we saw a tremendous opportunity in partnering with Avaya to make its cloud solutions available across a range of deployments including public and private cloud. This fits in with Batelco’s strategy for the enterprise division, and particularly, for the small and medium enterprises. Batelco aims at providing the sector with practical, flexible and affordable solutions that enables growth in the segment while providing high levels of performance and efficiency through the application of the latest cloud-based solutions.” said Abderrahmane Mounir, General Manager, Enterprise, at Batelco.
