Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing and data intelligence division of the Alibaba Group, has announced that nine new partners have joined its EMEA Ecosystem Partner Program. Launched last year, the program aims to strengthen cooperation between the company’s customers and partners in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The new partners in the EMEA region are Cloud Temple, Equinix, EVA Group, Group Cyllene, GTI Software & Networking, PROJIXI Europe, SKALE-5, SMILE and Xebia. Together, the partners can facilitate the digital transformations of companies in the region. This applies especially to the retail sector, where the expertise of the Alibaba Group can be deployed in e-commerce, logistics and New Retail.

Partners can also leverage the company’s business success and market insight to increase their presence in China through the China Gateway initiative. “By providing our state-of-the-art cloud infrastructure and advanced data intelligence servers, we hope, together with our partners, to accelerate the digital transformation of companies, helping them to succeed in global markets, especially in China,” said Yeming Wang, General Manager at Alibaba Cloud EMEA.

The company already had several other partners in the EMEA region. These include Linkbynet, Ecritel, Micropole and Intel, who joined the company last year.

French universities

In addition, Alibaba Cloud has entered into a partnership with local universities in France. Last year, a partnership with Telecom ParisTech was set up to provide cloud computing and big data training for their students. This year there will also be a partnership with SUPINFO International University.

It is an institute of IT and computer science, founded in Paris in 1965. Nowadays the school has over thirty campuses worldwide. The two parties will work closely together in the areas of course design, certification training, building IT infrastructure and cross-border connectivity.
