My organization, a Canadian nonprofit consulting agency that helps NGOs set up monitoring and evaluation systems, just got government funding to set up an evaluation platform for all of Ontario. We are fans of Microsoft products, and got an Azure donation of $5,000/year. (Thanks, Microsoft!) However, none of our software developers is comfortable with Azure and it would cost us more to move from AWS than it would to stay, even paying the AWS hosting costs.
I have tried to get advice from various sources including Microsoft Nonprofit services in Canada - no response at all. This initiative will have a large impact on the nonprofit space in Canada and internationally, since we are building a platform that integrates two major open source software programs - DHIS2 and Limesurvey - plus an open source ISO 11179-compliant metadata registry (Aristotle MDR). We are already working in several countries with DHIS2 implementations (on AWS). It seems a pity to give up on Azure. Any suggestions on where I can get some advice?
