E-Business: New alliance for BT and Microsoft.
BT is to implement a new .Net-based system which uses a Microsoft Hosted Exchange infrastructure to deliver email and software services to SMEs.
The IT services agreement involves a series of strategic projects which will enable BT to acclerate the launch of the new internet-based services.
With Microsoft's support, BT will be able to roll out easy-to-use email, shared calender and contacts, as well as other software applications, to small businesses.
The solution being deployed by BT comprises a suite of Microsoft .NETbased software and service packages that are designed to provide enhanced connectivity and streamline operational and billing processes.
The project follows extensive trials by BT and Microsoft Consulting Services at the Microsoft Technology Centre in Reading and its partner solutions centre in Redmond, Washington.
