Airnet Group Becomes A Microsoft Authorized Education Partner

Tuesday, May 7, 2019

Airnet Group announced on Tuesday it has become a Microsoft Authorized Education Partner (AEP), demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft academic customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment. To earn a Microsoft AEP authorization, partners must complete a test to prove their level of academic licensing and market expertise.

 

The AEP program is designed to train participating resellers on Microsoft’s Academic licensing, authorize them to purchase and resell Microsoft Academic licenses, and demonstrate to potential customers that they are approved and knowledgeable academic partners.

 

Officials said, "Airnet Group’s proven track record with managing complex data centers, both on-premises or in the cloud, is an ideal fit for serving the education sector.

Their solutions deliver reduced complexity and exceptional value for academic customers who want an end-to-end IT partner. Working with both public and private educational institutions as a direct Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) and using their cornerstone Azure cloud solutions, the Airnet Systems Assessment Tool (ASAT) and Airnet Azure Foundations (AAF), Airnet Group migrates and manages academic customer workloads quickly and easily."

 

“This Microsoft AEP authorization shows our commitment and specialism in the academic IT marketplace and demonstrates our knowledge of Microsoft and its academic products,” said Greg Jones, CIO of Airnet Group. “We hope to accelerate our academic customers’ successes by serving as technology advisors for their IT requirements.”

 

“By becoming AEPs, partners show themselves to be committed and trained in providing discounted Microsoft academic products to the education market,” said Anthony Salcito, vice president of Education for Microsoft Corp.’s Worldwide Public Sector. “This authorization, along with our other education partner initiatives, gives our partners recognition of their areas of expertise and our academic customers the confidence that they are buying from academic IT specialists.”

 

The Microsoft AEP Program is designed to authorize and equip organizations that deliver academic products and services through the Microsoft platform with the training, resources and support they need to provide their customers with superior experiences and outcomes.
