Get more flexibility, simplified billing, and superior support when you transfer your Microsoft Azure subscriptions from a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA) to a Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) model with BUI. Enjoy a seamless transition, without any rebuilds or downtime, exclusively enabled by South Africa’s first home-grown Azure Expert MSP.

An Enterprise Agreement (EA) is the traditional way for enterprises to purchase and license Microsoft software and Azure cloud services for a set period of time. EA subscriptions require commitment upfront, for between 1 and 3 years, and include limited support from Microsoft.

The Microsoft Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) model is an alternative to the EA. With CSP, enterprises can add or remove licences as required, and pay for what is used on a month-by-month basis, while enjoying top-class customer support from Azure experts.

EAs, while comprehensive, are not flexible enough for the rapidly changing needs of the modern enterprise. The CSP model offers numerous advantages, including:

  • More flexibility. Enterprises are able to change the number and type of licences at any time, for true flexibility in terms of resource management.
  • Simplified billing. Enterprises receive a customised monthly invoice for licences, services, and Azure usage, which means an all-in-one view of costs.
  • Superior support. Enterprises have access to a Microsoft Azure Expert MSP, backed by a 24/7 service desk and Microsoft premier support for prioritised technical assistance.
  • Local partner. Enterprises benefit from rand-based billing and local procurement points by dealing directly with BUI, a proudly South African Level 1 B-BBEE vendor.

As the only South African company currently holding Microsoft Azure Expert MSP status, and as the 2020 Microsoft Country Partner of the Year for SA, BUI has the proven expertise and capability to deliver the highest quality of managed services for the Microsoft cloud environment.

Our specialists are committed to finding innovative solutions to today’s technological challenges, and to helping enterprises unlock the full value of their Microsoft investments

We can move your EA Microsoft Azure subscriptions to the CSP model seamlessly, and without any services disruptions. The process involves an engagement between BUI and your Microsoft Azure account administrators. Contact us to learn more about the steps to follow.

Licensing Compliance

At BUI, we recognise the critical role that software licensing compliance plays in protecting your business and network operations. Using unlicensed software can lead to significant risks, including potential legal action and expensive fines. Compliance audits can also disrupt your business operations and damage your reputation. Therefore, maintaining software license compliance is not only a legal obligation, but also a good business practice.

Our team of experts has the knowledge and experience to help you manage your software assets and ensure that you are in compliance with all licensing agreements. We can provide guidance on the various software licensing options and recommend the best licensing model for your specific needs.

Our services cover a wide range of software vendors, including Microsoft, Cisco, Palo Alto Networks, and more.

Managing high-value software assets is difficult for two reasons:
  • the increasing complexity of software licensing agreements
  • the lack of understanding of the regulations relating to Software Licensing Compliance

Don’t let licensing compliance become a headache for your business – contact us today to learn how we can help you manage your high-value software assets with ease and confidence.

Security Assessments

Businesses that lack deep insights into their overall security posture are at an increased risk of cyberattacks and data breaches. Cyberthreats are becoming increasingly sophisticated and frequent, leaving businesses vulnerable to potential financial losses, reputational damage, and other serious consequences.

At BUI, we offer security assessments to help businesses identify vulnerabilities and take proactive steps to improve their overall security posture. Security Assessments are usually done on a monthly or even weekly basis in some cases. These are done to make sure the website or web-based program is still in compliance with passing security requirements to meet the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) or your web admin and industry standard compliance.

Our experienced professionals conduct in-depth assessments to identify potential vulnerabilities in IT systems and networks, which can protect user confidentiality, sensitive data, system resources, and more. We provide detailed reports on our findings and recommendations, allowing businesses to make informed decisions and take proactive steps to mitigate potential threats.

Don’t leave your business’s security to chance – contact BUI today to learn more about our security assessments and how we can help protect your business from potential cyber threats.
