Microsoft Hong Kong and Lenovo PCCW Solutions have formed a strategic partnership to help organizations in Hong Kong accelerate digital transformation and drive business growth, thereby fostering the city’s evolution into a smart city and digital hub for the Greater Bay Area (GBA).

The partnership combines Microsoft’s cloud solutions, global presence, and strong go-to-market capabilities with Lenovo PCCW Solutions’ system integration and application development expertise, skilled talent pool, and extensive customer footprint.

Microsoft will provide extensive training and support on Microsoft Azure, Power Platform, Dynamics 365 and Security Fundamentals, to Lenovo PCCW Solutions’ network of over 4,000 IT specialists.

Meanwhile, Lenovo PCCW Solutions will become one of the key partners of Microsoft’s Career Spark. The programme seeks to provide job opportunities to new graduates across Hong Kong, mainland China, Singapore, Malaysia, etc., with Microsoft certifications. The goal is to bolster IT talent in Hong Kong, equipping Lenovo PCCW Solutions professionals to deliver a more expansive range of managed cloud services to customers.

“To date, Microsoft has engaged 14 million learners in Asia via LinkedIn, Microsoft Learn and partner efforts. By 2025, we will help train and certify 10 million people with skills for in-demand jobs,” says Cally Chan, general manager of Microsoft Hong Kong and Macau.

“Bridging the skills gaps in today’s digital economy is foundational to the development of GBA. With the strategic partnership with Lenovo PCCW Solutions and the expansion of global skills initiative, we want to continue making digital skills accessible to all, opening up employment opportunities for people to succeed and embrace innovation.”
