We’ve been talking a lot about the recent announcement by Microsoft that it will be offering a $5,000 Azure credit to eligible nonprofits for services including but not limited to web and mobile apps, business apps, microservice apps, development and testing, big data and analytics, internet of things (IoT), backup, recovery, and archive, high performance computing and digital media, and with good reason.
This decision by Microsoft is a major shift to help nonprofits of all sizes across the world to leverage technology that’s normally available only for the largest organizations and for-profit entities. Available to qualified, eligible nonprofit entities, the move to provide these services for free would not be possible without the help of Jeremy Pitman, Microsoft Philanthropies Cloud Services Program Manager, who played a major role in developing and initiating the program.
