(ZIZ)– The Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis makes information technology industry history on Wednesday with the launch of Microsoft Office 365, making it the first country in the OECS to take the all important technological leap.
T. Valerie Onu of Quintessence Consulting, in speaking with ZIZ radio personality G-Cue on Tuesday, said Microsoft Office 365 is a cloud based platform which provides a package of solutions for businesses
“Pretty much if you are accustomed to having an email whether its Gmail or Hotmail, the difference is you no longer have to worry about storing your emails or files on a flash drive, you now have a back office in cyber space where you can store material. Another feature would be that you can access your information anytime anywhere,” she said.
According to Ms. Onu the launch of Microsoft Office 365 puts St. Kitts on the cutting edge of information technology development.
“St. Kitts is actually the second island in the region to be approved for Microsoft Office 365; it’s the first in the OECS. As a matter of fact, Office 365 has not been deployed in many countries in the world so I would say it puts St. Kitts at a real cutting edge when it comes to IT development in the region and even among developing countries as well,” she said.
The official launch will be held tomorrow at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort where the Federal Minister of Information Technology, the Hon. Glenn Phillip will give the feature address on behalf of the government of St. Kitts and Nevis while Jonathan Jagai, Territory Manager, will speak on behalf of Microsoft.
