Software maker Microsoft has just scored another big win in Europe after signing a new licensing and servicing deal with the Serbian government.
Microsoft’s applications will be used by the Serbian public administration, b92.net reports adding that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dacic signed the deal on May 11.
While Microsoft claimed that the Serbian government decided to embrace its software solutions because they’re more secure, the Prime Minister explains that such a deal allows the authorities to start the work on several future projects.
“We firmly believe that through this agreement we are building a good path towards the realization of goals defined by the Serbian government and opening a common space for successful future projects,” the prime minister was quoted as saying.
“We believe that this agreement will be the cornerstone of a long-term strategic cooperation between Microsoft and the Serbian government.”
