(Before It's News)

1888 Press Release – Meylah and the Choose Washington (WA) Delegation driving force to help business engage and grow in the Cloud.
Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, WA – According to a recent report released by US News, Washington ranks No. 5 among states overall in the Best States analysis. Washington State is in the top-10 nationwide for growth. Meylah, as part of the Choose Washington (WA) delegation of companies announces several key partnerships arising out of the Mobile World Congress 2017, held in Barcelona this past month. 
Meylah was successful in engaging and partnering with variety of businesses, global government leaders and industry bodies to focus on best practices for using technology with an assessment focused methodology to solve major challenges in developing and growing cloud business. The state of Washington is a hub for information and communication technology, offering industries and various verticals the opportunity to not only adapt and survive, but also thrive. 
Taking the overall well-being into account, Meylah shared the Ignite Washington SMB digital-readiness blueprint at MWC with cities and industry associations to ensure they can adopt turnkey solutions for their small businesses through digital transformation. Ignite Washington looks to help small businesses (SMBs) increase their digital equity by starting with both a macro and micro assessment to properly understand what needs to be done. The roadmap provided to these companies allows them to seamlessly transform their business. 
In Barcelona, it was these digital solution-driven discussions and the knowledge provided by the Choose Washington delegation leaders that resulted in a successful event. 
Mark Calhoon, Sr. Managing Director at the Washington State Department of Commerce, has worked with the Commerce department since the 1990s and has seen the transformation himself. “This is the sixth year that Washington State has brought a delegation of companies to this show. Mobile World Congress has grown to become the world’s largest mobile tech show, with over 100,000 attendees annually. Washington is famously the epicenter of innovation in digital media and mobile technology development. MWC is effective way to showcase innovative Washington State companies and support economic growth across the State.”
“I remember when we were all the way in the back of the exhibit hall” notes Lucy Atkinson, a consultant based in the UK working with the Washington State Department of Commerce. “To now see us have such a significant presence at the show, have so many impactful meetings, it is tremendous to see the change that has been built up over the years.”
With a challenger and growth mindset, Meylah is proactively working with the state of WA and other economic organizations to help and guide the 60-plus percent of businesses in the state of Washington that aren’t cloud-ready properly adapt to the ecosystem. 
“By guiding smaller-to-mid-sized businesses through the digital transformation and into the cloud, they can stay competitive, grow jobs, and build economic prosperity. “cites David Jennings, Information & Communications Technology Business Development Manager, Economic Development Council of King County & Seattle WA.
“MWC let us be part of the melting pot to think about the idea of transformation,” Chaitra Vedullapalli, CMO of Meylah said. “The digital divide is increasing at a rapid rate, and as a result, adoption of technology and innovation can both slow down, ultimately limiting competitiveness. It was inspiring to be in Barcelona discussing the UN’s sustainable goals, Ignite Washington, and other initiatives to ensure transformation and success through the digital transformation.”
We are following this up with a WA SMB Cloud Summit and Readiness Event on April 18th in Bellevue WA.
