Leveraging Microsoft ECIF Program for Cost-Saving Deployments



RDA Delivers More Savings To Microsoft-Centric Solutions

Exciting news! RDA is now officially enrolled in Microsoft's End Customer Investment Funds (ECIF) program! The ECIF program is designed to distribute funds from Microsoft's financial resources to support customers in maximizing their utilization of Microsoft products and solutions. 

As a Legacy Gold-certified Microsoft partner enrolled in the ECIF Program, RDA is thrilled about the newfound opportunity to assist in the deployment of Microsoft solutions with the use of these funds. This means that if your company is seeking Microsoft licenses but lacks the resources and/or funds, RDA can step in with Microsoft ECIF program resources for product deployment, proof of concept (POC), or even to help transition from a competitor's product.

How Does This Apply to My Business?

Navigating the world of digital reliance can feel like a thrilling yet daunting adventure, especially when considering the financial commitments involved in upgrading your environments.

For example, if your organization heavily relies on on-premises data storage, the costs of migrating to a platform like Azure may seem overwhelming. The challenge lies in transitioning your data and SAS tools to a new platform while maintaining access to crucial business insights. Add in the uncertainties of the economic landscape, and the approval process for a significant modernization project, and this process can start to turn into a treacherous expedition.

That is where the Microsoft ECIF program comes into play. Now, Microsoft partners can provide businesses with a way to alleviate the financial burden of transitioning to a new platform. Partners, like RDA, can offer access to the necessary cost savings to kickstart our clients' integration journeys with confidence and support. This will also offset the costs for RDA's services such as:

  • Project management
  • Implementation
  • Architecture
  • User Acceptance Testing

Applying to the Microsoft ECIF Program

While this exciting opportunity opens up new possibilities for our team and customers, it's essential to note that eligibility for the funds comes with specific conditions. It will be important to move quickly and secure the funds because they historically run out in May each year!

Once approved, the funding application process will be managed by the partner on behalf of the customer, with the partner executing the work under a Statement of Work (SoW). Ultimately, it's a win-win-win situation for all involved!
