Microsoft to launch homegrown productivity app Kaizala globally

19 January, 2018

Global technology giant Microsoft is planning to take its made-for-India productivity app Kaizala to other countries in Southeast Asia and Africa, a report in a financial daily said.

Kaizala, which was released in India in July last year, is currently being tested for countries in Asia and Africa that have similar in mobile penetration trends as India, Anant Maheshwari, president at Microsoft India, told The Economic Times.

“Any country in the world where mobile is the primary form of productivity and it’s not driven through email only or primary email, Kaizala becomes very relevant,” he was quoted as saying to the newspaper.

The India president also said that the Redmond-headquartered company was also looking to increase the capacity of its Indian local data centre. “In the past six months, we have seen a very significant uptake in the usage of the public cloud in India, which is causing us to ask the right questions around capacity planning,” Maheshwari told ET.

Microsoft Kaizala is a mobile app that allows stakeholders within an organisation such as employees, customers and suppliers to communicate and coordinate with one another on a single platform.

The app offers data analytics, controlled access and data security. The Azure Active Directory services authentication ensures secure access to the Kaizala Management Portal, where IT administrators can control membership of all groups, remove users in one instance, and control user access to sensitive data, Microsoft said.

Kaizala is now being used by agro-chemical company UPL Ltd, private-sector lender Yes Bank, and healthcare provider Apollo Tele Health Services.
