REDMOND, Wash. and Madrid - Feb. 25, 2020 - Microsoft Corp. and Telefonica today announced plans to further expand their global strategic partnership to accelerate digital transformation for public and private entities of all sizes.

Microsoft will deliver intelligent Microsoft cloud services - including Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365, Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Power Platform - from new datacenter regions in Spain. Additionally, Telefonica will accelerate its own internal digital transformation by choosing Microsoft as its strategic cloud partner.

'Telefonica and Microsoft share a commitment to helping Spanish organizations of all sizes, in every industry, thrive in a world of rapid technologic change,' said Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft.

'The opening of a Microsoft datacenter region in Spain is a game changer, a key milestone in our strategic partnership that will boost Spain's industrial fabric and digital economy', said Jose Maria Alvarez-Pallete, chairman and CEO of Telefonica. 'Cloud is one of the key priorities in Telefonica, as we announced in November, with the launch of Telefonica Tech, the new unit to boost the solid growth of digital services. This global strategic partnership with Microsoft will certainly help to achieve that objective.'

Today's announcement builds on the partnership between both companies with new initiatives and joint plans across three key areas:

With the expanded relationship, the two companies have identified the opportunity to collaborate to better serve the needs of organizations of all sizes, in critical sectors such as government, health, education, travel, manufacturing, retail, finance, insurance and more, all with significant social and economic impact. Joint capabilities, delivered from a Microsoft Azure datacenter region in Spain and leveraging Telefonica's infrastructure, will also allow Telefonica and Microsoft's joint customers to deliver new services that require low latency, security and assured bandwidth, opening up new scenarios around 5G, edge computing and Industry 4.0.
