WPC 2016 is the biggest partner event of the year: three days of Vision Keynotes delivered by Microsoft executives and industry leaders.
Here you can find some of the major announcement about the Microsoft vision for the coming year.
Satya Nadella announced Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft AppSource will be available this fall.
Microsoft Dynamics 365 will unify the current Microsoft CRM and ERP cloud solutions into one cloud service with new purpose-built apps to help manage specific business functions.
Microsoft AppSource will be Microsoft’s new destination for business users to find and try out line-of-business Saas apps from Microsoft partners.
WPC featured a number of Digital Transformation sessions that showed how to use technology to help customers empower their employees, optimize operations and market more effectively.
Scott Guthrie, Vice President of the Cloud and Enterprise Group, talked about ‘a generational shift’ of organizations seeking to move their business to the cloud: the Microsoft Cloud represents the best choise to satisfy that demand with more trusted-cloud certifications than any other provider, unique hybrid capability, and the opportunity for partners to own the cloud journey for their customers end-to-end through the Cloud Solution Provider program.
It was also announced that, starting later this year, Windows 10 Enterprise E3 for CSP will enable businesses to get enterprise-grade security and management at just US$7 a seat per month for the first time through the Cloud Solution Provider channel. This means that partners selling through CSP will now be able to offer their customers our full stack of services and subscriptions, including Windows 10, Office 365, Microsoft Azure, and CRM subscriptions through a single partner with one user account, one point of contact for support and one simplified bill.
