DT is adding its own security packages into Microsoft's cloud-based offerings. 

Going forward, enterprises will be able to use DT's core business services and applications in conjunction with the Microsoft cloud services.

In preparation for the deployment of the cloud services, DT said it has hundreds of Microsoft-certified specialists as well as experts on cloud transformation. DT will be adding more specialists and experts across the nine countries.

DT said it has more than 60,000 cloud systems running for its business customers worldwide, and that it will adapt the Microsoft cloud solutions according to the demand of its clients.
