In response to concerns, Microsoft, which had been fined 1.6 billion euros ($1.7 billion) by EU antitrust regulators, said on Wednesday that it will alter its license conditions and allow cloud service providers to compete more effectively.

Smith told a conference organized by research tank Bruegel in Brussels that the corporation was taking the first but not the last step to address the issues.

Microsoft wants to listen and act on the complaints, he said.

“It really starts by giving more options to European cloud providers. So if there’s a company that has a data center but wants to run solutions in its cloud PBX data center, we’re creating more options for them to do so with our software because that’s what they’ve been asking for,” he said.

The improvements, according to Smith, include permitting cloud service providers to provide Windows as a complete desktop operating system, extending longer-term price protection, and modifying license conditions.

After German software firm NextCloud, France’s OVHcloud, and two other companies filed complaints about Microsoft’s cloud operations, the corporation found itself back on the EU competition enforcer’s radar.
