LG CNS Co. — LG’s IT service subsidiary — has said that it has agreed with US tech behemoth Microsoft Corp. to collaborate on the development of Cloud-based enterprise solutions.

LG CNS and Microsoft signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on the strategic partnership at the American company’s Asian-Pacific regional headquarters in Singapore, which calls for the integration of their IT and cloud platforms for new enterprise solutions, Yonhap reported on Monday.

The companies plan to form a task force later this year to develop groupware solutions based on Microsoft’s Cloud, Windows 10 and Office 365.
