Unique Solutions and Exceptional Security

Lunavi's Azure Expert Managed Service Provider (AEMSP) status is a testament to our unwavering commitment to staying ahead in the dynamic Microsoft ecosystem. We understand that modernization and scalability are essential for businesses to thrive, and our role is to guide you proactively through the ever-evolving Azure cloudscape.

As one of only 134 partners worldwide holding the Azure Expert MSP designation –and one of the few to hold it since its inception in 2019 – Lunavi showcases the depth of our skills and experience. To maintain this status, we continuously elevate our standards in line with Microsoft's evolving criteria and complete a strenuous annual audit. While many partners have struggled to maintain their designation, Lunavi remains dedicated to exceeding expectations.

Why Choose An Azure Expert MSP?

With Lunavi as your Azure Expert MSP, you can trust in our certified Azure practice and technical team. We have access to Microsoft Azure engineering teams, priority support, and cutting-edge technical training, ensuring that you receive top-tier expertise. Migrating to the cloud can be challenging, but our Microsoft-certified technical engineers facilitate a smooth transition, helping you harness Azure's capabilities without disrupting your daily operations.

Working with an Expert MSP delivers numerous benefits: incentives and funding, advanced knowledge, specialized practice areas, cutting-edge platforms, and licensing guidance among them. Lunavi can serve as your Cloud Solution Provider and 24/7support provider as well.

Solution Designated Practice Areas

As a part of the new Microsoft Cloud AI Partner Program Lunavi has acquired "Solution Designated" status in the following areas:

·  Data & AI

·  Digital & Application Innovation

·  Infrastructure

·  Security

·  Modern Work

To be considered an expert in a Microsoft Solution Area, Lunavi must achieve consistently high scores in performance, net new customer adds, certifications and skilling requirements, and customer growth and success. These metrics are constantly monitored and Lunavi has proven to be highly capable in not one, but all five areas of expertise.

Funding and Exclusive Access

Our AEMSP status grants us exclusive access to Microsoft events and product launches. More importantly, it opens doors to substantial funding opportunities through programs like ECIF and AMM PL (Azure Migrate & Modernize Partner-Led). Microsoft annually invests billions in these partner programs, empowering us to fund your projects, cover POCs and workshops, provide Azure Credits, and expedite your Azure migration. These funds would not be available to our customers without Lunavi’s partnership with Microsoft.

·  ECIF:

The End Customer Investment Fund is a massive bucket of funding that Microsoft sets aside each year to pay for services in support of Microsoft products and solutions. As an Azure Expert MSP and trusted Microsoft partner we have exceptional contacts at Microsoft that will navigate the application process and can get your team access to up to $500,000 per project! Not all partners are eligible to apply for ECIF, but Lunavi is one of them.

·  AMM PL:

Azure Migrate & Modernize Partner Led - Lunavi can access up to $100,000 for your large migration project. Or we can jumpstart your migration with Free Azure Credits to help offset your initial costs while you get up and running in the cloud. In the last year, we have had 11 successful funding requests (with around $200,000in the current funding pipeline) bringing almost $100,000 back to our customers through AMM PL and Azure Everywhere.

·  ACO:

Azure Credits are available to many of our customers getting ready to migrate workloads to the cloud. Lunavi can apply for these credits on your behalf, and you can use these funds toward future digital consulting projects as your business grows in the cloud. We recently won $24,000 in Azure Credits for a client, and they have some incredible projects planned that are already paid for by Microsoft! This is an exciting way to use your tech budget to accomplish so much more than you thought possible.

Don’t let budget stop your progress in the Azure cloud. If you have items on your wish list that could use additional funding to get to the finish line, Lunavi can help identify and secure incentives to help.

Azure Expert MSP Success Stories

Lunavi can tackle complicated migrations to the cloud and modernize your business practices, ushering you into the future of business management and customer service. Lunavi assisted BCU, a top 100 credit union in the United States, in modernizing cloud their applications, migrating workloads, and by providing 24/7 support to their team . Our around-the-clock expertise supports your IT department and backs up your skills with ours. Along with providing multifaceted solutions, Lunavi offers extensive support to our clients so they are left with long-term, sustainable solutions.

Data Analytics has become a hot topic, and we have expanded our Data Analytics capabilities to Expert status to meet this demand. Companies are sitting on extensive amounts of data that they can't efficiently access or leverage. There are numerous ways to use Microsoft products and services to influence the information you already have within your company.

For example, Lunavi uses Azure Data Factory to pull data from SQL and Cosmos databases. Leveraging Azure Data Lake Analytics, our team can consolidate and transform your data into a new and usable format. Once we have accessible data, powerful tools like Power BI can be used to analyze and visually represent your data in mind-blowing interactive dashboards.

Each customer is unique and so are the solutions we provide. Our delivery team works directly with your IT department throughout your project to provide the best possible experience and custom solutions. Although every single delivery of a service is tailored to the client, our customers want many of the same things: security, reliability, agility, and peace of mind. Lunavi consulting and managed services provide comprehensive IT platforms, applications, support, and optimization, allowing you to concentrate on your core business activities.

As an Azure Expert MSP, Lunavi brings you not only financial support but also peace of mind and confidence in your cloud journey. We have taken significant steps to demonstrate our excellence to Microsoft and, most importantly, to our customers, positioning ourselves among the best in the business. If you have any remaining questions about Azure Expert MSPs, or about your current workloads and tech projects, please contact us today and we’ll connect you with one of our experts!
