to help deliver security, 24/7 reliability and user productivity.

Today, the world's biggest IT companies are taking the cloud very, very seriously. And few IT companies come bigger than Microsoft. The imminent launch of Office 365 will find MillenniumIT ready and able to help Sri Lankan business innovators migrate to more effective, more accessible cloud-based services - from day one onward.'

'Primarily a solutions company with 'gold' certification in many Microsoft competencies, MillenniumIT being one of our top enterprise partners for Microsoft in Sri Lanka, has the vision, as well as the strength and depth, to carry these Cloud related solutions forward into the market. They are cloud-ready already, which means they have the competence and resources to offer licensing and professional services through people who are already trained in cloud technologies. We are very encouraged to see Partners skilling themselves up ahead of the launch which is a very positive sign for Sri Lanka Customers.'
