ECI Launches Unified Cloud Offering for Microsoft Modern Workplace Cloud Solution

Boston, MA – November 10, 2022 – ECI, a leader in public cloud and cybersecurity managed services for the global financial services industry, today announced the launch of its unified cloud offering for Microsoft Modern Workplace solutions and its new status as a Solutions Partner for Modern Work. With ECI’s enhanced offering, customers can access Microsoft 365 and related applications in a unified platform, while also benefiting from support of a designated Microsoft solutions partner in the hybrid work space.

In today’s competitive digital market, alternative financial services institutions are increasingly looking to third-party partners, such as Managed Service Providers (MSPs), as strategic business partners to help navigate the challenges of today’s modern workplace. For many institutions, this includes going “beyond lights on” from day-to-day tactical support to help streamline business operations, proactively address security and compliance challenges, and embrace new technologies to remain competitive.

Through ECI’s unified offering for Microsoft Modern Workplace solutions, customers benefit from:

  • Integrated support for Microsoft 365 and related applications, including Teams, Power Apps, SharePoint, and Viva, for streamlined distributed collaboration across teams.
  • Managed cloud support for Microsoft Azure, combined with ECI’s data protection and cloud security solutions, to ensure compliance with financial services industry standards.
  • Expertise from a designated Microsoft Solutions Partner for Modern Work, with demonstrated capabilities in helping customers shift to hybrid work using Microsoft 365.

ECI’s unified cloud solution is closely aligned with the financial service regulatory environment, helping firms not only navigate increasingly tighter regulations but also enable adoption of digital technology that helps reduce risk and drive revenue / fund performance.

“Today’s alternative investment firms need a provider that can not only support business operations across their entire IT stack, but also understands the unique challenges of their industry – from compliance and security to the modern workforce,” said Rich Itri, chief innovation officer, ECI. “As a long-standing Microsoft partner and leading MSP in the alternative financial services space, we are excited to provide our customers with a unified, fully-managed solution that combines Microsoft’s Modern Workplace capabilities with ECI’s industry-leading cloud and security expertise.”

“The nature of work has changed. Employees expect the flexibility to work securely from anywhere and have the tools necessary to enhance the quality and effectiveness of their work experience,” Ben Summers, director, Microsoft Teams and Microsoft 365 Platform Marketing.
“Microsoft Modern Workplace solutions helps companies transform operations to meet the standards of today’s workforce by enabling more seamless communication and collaboration, regardless of where work is done.”
