Charities using Microsoft Azure, along with those planning to migrate soon, are being invited to share their stories with Microsoft.
However the cloud computing technology is being used – whether its for data storage, service delivery, infrastructure support or cost savings – charities that share their story with Microsoft are in with a chance of winning $10,000 for their good cause.
The contest is open now and stories can be submitted here. The closing date is 24 April so there’s plenty of time for charity innovations to be showcased.
Once the contest has closed, Microsoft will select a winner to receive $10,000 of Azure credits on top of the already existing Azure donation.
If your charity hasn’t already taken advantage of this donation from Microsoft, there is more information on their donation pages here.
And in the meantime don’t forget that Microsoft is seeking Azure-related charity stories now at http://aka.ms/howdoyouazure with full terms and conditions available to download at http://aka.ms/howdoyouazureTC.
