Burma (Myanmar) Cloud Technology

Burmese companies prefer U.S. cloud solutions over other providers.

In February 2021, the Burmese military (Tatmadaw) deposed the democratically elected civilian government, including the President and the State Counsellor, and seized governing power. The military’s surprise coup has caused significant damage to the country’s growing economy and social stability. Subsequent nationwide demonstrations and the military’s escalating responses have negatively impacted many industries, mainly banking, finance, healthcare, financial technology, and logistics.

Post-coup, Burmese firms, including SMEs and larger enterprises, continue to seek opportunities to convert to cloud solutions. In addition, some local technology companies actively search for new distributorship and license opportunities with U.S. cloud solution brands. 

As of September 2021, twelve U.S. cloud solution providers are operating in Burma through local partners. The existing U.S. tech companies dominate other non-U.S. cloud technologies in the market.
