In today's working world businesses are leveraging new technologies to stay competitive.  Artificial Intelligence and evergreen cloud solutions are helping businesses thrive by modernising the way employees work. A recent survey by Tech Central commissioned by Storm Technology revealed that 59% of IT leaders believe that their company needs to adopt AI to remain competitive over the next three years yet an over-reliance on on-premise business applications can block their adoption of AI.

To help organisations embrace new cloud technologies and harness the power of AI,  Microsoft has introduced the AIM program.

What is the Microsoft AIM Program?

AIM (Accelerate, Innovate, Move) is a new initiative from Microsoft that offers organisations not only a tailored path for Dynamics customers to move critical processes to the cloud but also provides funding to help customers on their cloud migration journey. Customers who qualify for the AIM program will have access to a dedicated team of cloud migration experts, expert assessments and migration supports.

The AIM program aims to do three things for customers:

  1. Help customers who qualify for the program accelerate their migration to the cloud. This starts with a Microsoft-funded AIM assessment which helps customers clarify the technical dependencies and business outcomes of moving systems to the cloud as well as the different steps required. These assessments are delivered by Microsoft and Microsoft partners.

  2. Provide customers with the expert services, guidance and support needed during their journey to the cloud to ensure a seamless transition so they can innovate faster to stay ahead of the competition.

  3. Support customers to move with agility and scale as the business grows with exclusive AIM license and usage offers that can benefit organisations as they grow and help them maximise their investments in the Microsoft eco-system.

The AIM program provides Microsoft partners with the tools to become expert advisors in offering a tailored path to the cloud.
