The Andhra Government is all set to sign a MoU with Microsoft in the presence of company’s CEO Satya Nadella in Hyderabad. The MoU will be signed when Nadella will meet Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, MoU will work to establish a better environment in education system of the state.

Microsoft will support the state government in building up three POC (Proof-of-concept) solutions in three sectors – education, eCitizen services and agriculture.

The Chief Minister’s office quoted “The government will utilise Microsoft’s Azure Machine Learning and Advanced Visualisation lab technology for predictive analytics. This technology will act as a major catalyst for achieving sustainable doubt-digit growth and better public services.”

Microsoft will also provide training to government officials in cloud technology for better functioning in the education and eCitizen services.

Nadella will also visit the India’s largest technology incubator in the town- T-Hub (developed by the State Government). He will also be addressing young entrepreneurs there.

The Andhra government was going to launch policies during his presence, but due to his request to keep the event low profile, the announcements were cancelled. The announcements were based on state’s IT, gaming and animation policies.

During his last visit in September last year, he met Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao. India has the largest Microsoft development centre after the one in Redmond, US, though it is not clear if the 47-year old will be visiting that centre or not.
