Microsoft Partnering Power – 09

July 27, 2009

Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference was phenonmenal. 9,000 people from over 125 countries came together to hear Microsoft’s vision and strategies . I enjoyed meeting the partners from all partners of the world. The energy was very  vibrant and shared a remarkable year of opportunities with the introduction of the new Microsoft Partner Network and the amazing wave of new product launches.

We heard from

  •  Bill Veghte about the exciting developments with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • Steven Elop showcased the innovation of Office 2010.
  • Bob Muglia gave you new details about Microsoft’s cloud computing offerings and shared the vision for how software-plus-services enables partners to generate new revenue opportunities and provide enhanced customer value.
  • Steve Ballmer described Microsoft’s commitment to a long-term investment and growth strategy.
  • Kevin Turner gave a compelling review of Microsoft’s competitive strategy and intent to tackle our competition head on by providing a breadth of technologies across the cloud, the enterprise and the web.

Here are some of the resources I would like to share with all of you that will be valuable to increase the partnering power with Microsoft.
