Mint Africa, a leading partner of Microsoft and global IT consultancy, Mint Group, announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership with MSTelcom, an Angolan telecommunications service provider, which provides leading services in information and communication technologies (ICT) to the Angolan market.
Mint Africa and MSTelcom signed this partnership to bring Microsoft technological solutions to the Angolan market, allowing the digital transformation of national entities with local support.
“This partnership represents an excellent opportunity for us to train and train Angolans and rely on their services to provide resources for our projects. Mint experts will provide remote support to ensure an excellent delivery,” explains Mint Africa Executive Dennis Lupambo. “We plan to serve the entire country with Microsoft solutions and ensure those solutions are widely available.”
“One of Microsoft's top priorities is to enable organizations across the continent to grow through our strategic partnerships. We are proud that Microsoft partner Mint Africa has partnered with MSTelcom to allow customers full access to Microsoft solutions that are relevant to their business needs.

As a Business Unit of Grupo Sonangol, the Angolan state oil company, MSTelcom has historically embraced new technologies and services to maintain its competitive advantage over its competitors in the region.
Being the first company in Angola to launch a public cloud on Microsoft Azure Stack Hub has elevated MSTelcom's status to a respected cloud service provider in the Angolan market.
We are anxious to see what this partnership will bring, in terms of innovation, to the Angolan market and to the range of companies in the country”, says MSTelcom PCE, Felisberta de Jesus.
“The objective is not only to bring technology, but also innovation, agility and flexibility, to improve processes and business opportunities for companies in the Angolan market. This partnership will provide access to technology solutions that will increase the productivity of local companies and help them achieve better results on their organizational KPIs”.
Felisberta de Jesus continues: “**On the other hand, this partnership will allow the seeds of knowledge and investment in local human resources to blossom, translating into a short-term contribution to satisfying the demand for specialists in cutting-edge technologies. **”
The partnership between Mint and MSTelcom guarantees an offer of services in the local cloud through Azure Stack and a service offer in the public cloud through Microsoft Data Centers, in addition to project implementation and customer relationship management.
