Microsoft Hong Kong has partnered with technology innovation services provider Lenovo PCCW Solutions to accelerate digital transformation and cloud innovation in Hong Kong.
The goal is to help organisations use the cloud to uncover new revenue streams and develop talent, while developing Hong Kong into a smart city that will serve as a model for other cities in the Greater Bay Area and Asia.
Microsoft will provide training for Lenovo PCCW Solutions’ network of over 4,000 IT specialists in Microsoft Azure, Power Platform, Dynamics 365 and Security Fundamentals.
Lenovo PCCW Solutions will also become a key partner of Microsoft’s Career Spark programme to provide job opportunities to new graduates with Microsoft certifications across Hong Kong, Singapore, China and other locations.
“To date, Microsoft has engaged 14 million learners in Asia via LinkedIn, Microsoft Learn and partner efforts,” said Cally Chan, general manager of Microsoft Hong Kong and Macau, “By 2025, we will help train and certify 10 million people with skills for in-demand jobs.
“Bridging the skills gaps in today’s digital economy is foundational to the development of the GBA. With the strategic partnership with Lenovo PCCW Solutions and the expansion of global skills initiative, we want to continue making digital skills accessible to all, opening employment opportunities for people to succeed and embrace innovation.”
