Partners that have a Windows 10 deployment practice are seeing gross margins of up to 36 percent on project services. Many of these partners have existing practices around Azure Active Directory (AAD), Microsoft Intune, and System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), and/or have a security practice. They are applying that expertise to create pull-through opportunities with Windows 10, using repeatable service offerings.
In discussions with customers about their digital transformation journey and how their organization plans to fend off digitally-born competitors, Windows 10 frequently comes up as a way to significantly enhance end-user experiences. With more than 330 million end customers already using Windows 10, partners can use their knowledge of the Microsoft technology stack—Azure Active Directory, Microsoft Intune, System Center Configuration Manager, and Microsoft Azure IaaS/PaaS—to offer end-to-end project services that help incumbent enterprises, public sector organizations, and commercial customers disrupt their industry.
