ASMGi Becomes a Microsoft Authorized Education Partner

Jan 26, 2018 | Company News | 0 comments

ASMGi earns distinction through a commitment to academic customers.

ASMGi has achieved Microsoft Authorized Education Partner (AEP) status, demonstrating our ability to meet Microsoft academic customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment. We are already a Tier-1 partner, but this designation acknowledges our ability to bring practical IT innovation not only to leading enterprises but to schools, colleges and universities, as well.

Qualifying for the designation includes passing a test to prove market expertise. The AEP program is designed to train firms like ours on Microsoft’s Academic licensing, offer Microsoft Academic licenses, and demonstrate to potential customers that we are knowledgeable academic partners.

Academia is a great market for our three core areas of expertise: 1. GRC and Security, 2. Cloud/IT Services, 3. Software Development. The three work together to provide a comprehensive view of technology.

“This Microsoft AEP authorization shows our commitment to the academic IT marketplace and demonstrates our knowledge of Microsoft and its academic products,” said Steve Faykus ASMGi CTO. “We accelerate our academic customers’ successes by serving as technology advisors for their IT requirements.”

Microsoft bragged on us as well, which is always nice: “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.

ASMGi is a practical IT innovation company headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio offering custom software development, security and compliance programs and industry leading IT services that help our customers innovate and grow. ASMGi is now a Tier 1 Microsoft CSP. For more information, visit or call us at 216-255-3045.
