Each month in the U.S. partner newsletter, Sharon Collins delivers a message for Microsoft Cloud Essentials subscribers, offering information and recommendations to help those companies build their cloud practices around Microsoft online services like Microsoft Office 365, Windows Intune, Microsoft CRM Online, Microsoft Private Cloud, and Windows Azure.
You are out there making the cloud happen for customers, and I hope you are finding value in your Cloud Essentials subscription benefits, like internal-use rights and delegated administration. Each month, it’s my pleasure to bring you additional cloud-related information and opportunities so you can more effectively help your customers bring their businesses online.
Last month, I highlighted three opportunities to capitalize on the cloud, including the Cloud Easy offer that ends on September 30. Here are two new resources I recommend that can help you close cloud deals.
- Microsoft Cloud Fast-Track Boot Camps. Microsoft cloud experts are coming to several U.S. cities in September, October, and November. Register for one of these one-day boot camps and learn to fast-track your cloud sales and profits. This course is designed for partners who have had initial success selling Microsoft cloud solutions and are ready to grow their Microsoft cloud business over the next six months.
- Microsoft Office 365 Customer Demo Training. Watch this technical overview, featuring TS2 presenter Bryan Von Axelson, to learn how to demo Microsoft Office 365 and utilize the demo provisioning tool to engage your customers and close Microsoft Office 365 deals.
On the U.S. partner portal, visit the Microsoft Cloud Solutions and Microsoft Office 365 pages regularly to find more resources that will help you capture cloud opportunities and deliver enterprise-level productivity solutions.
