The Partner of the future: what is the impact of the Microsoft partner community?

At Microsoft UK we are incredibly proud of our partner ecosystem and the role you all play in helping our customers have great experiences with Microsoft products and services.

We are conducting our very first impact study which we hope will provide valuable insights into the contribution Microsoft has on the British economy alongside our partners. With a survey designed to collect valuable insights from our partners about the forces shaping the new way of doing business, the speed in which our partners are adapting, and the economic impact of promoting IP-led services and solutions in the United Kingdom.

This study not only covers the economic impact to the UK but also will provide you with a local benchmark for your organisation across sales, marketing and technical skills and may assist in discovering other areas of opportunities in the local market.

We need your help!
