Resource spotlight: Azure Managed Services Playbook
Designed for CSP Partners, the Azure Managed Services Playbook, "How to elevate your cloud services practice" is the #1 most downloaded resource on our website--an essential resource to learn how to build your Azure practice.
This playbook is meant for all Microsoft partners—including SIs, hosters, resellers and VARs—looking to tap into this massive opportunity and set up a managed services business on Azure. It provides a framework for those looking to build a managed services practice—and some best practices for those who are
