Alibaba Cloud, the cloud computing arm of the Alibaba Group, has launched its EMEA Ecosystem Partner Program, an initiative to further strengthen the collaboration between Alibaba Cloud’s customers and partners in Europe, Middle East and Africa, said the firm in a statement.

The program will focus on four key areas: the development of digital transformation in targeted vertical industries, supporting talent development, advancing technology innovation and enhancing marketplaces, said the firm.

Industry players including Intel, Accenture, Hashicorp, Ecritel, Altran, Micropole and Linkbynet are among the initial participants in the EMEA Ecosystem Partner Program. In addition, Station F, the world's biggest start-up campus, has incorporated the program in their exclusive Perks for their 1,000 start-ups. The collective mission is to create an inclusive ecosystem that can benefit all those involved, particularly the customers in the EMEA region.

“Our goal in EMEA is to bring powerful and elastic cloud services to our customers and create a well- connected, comprehensive ecosystem with our partners to accelerate cloud technology development in the regional cloud industry,” said Yeming Wang, general manager of Alibaba Cloud EMEA.
