Microsoft Inspire is right around the corner and I can’t wait to attend the event. This would be my 10th year of attending the event.
I don’t know of any company better than Microsoft that has created such a successful partner ecosystem. It provides great value to customers, benefits partners, and benefits Microsoft.
The last few years of Microsoft Inspire (formerly Microsoft WPC) have been vibrant and informative ever since Microsoft has embarked on its successful journey to the cloud. I am looking forward to learning about new Microsoft product strategies, partner strategies, and also take advantage of the many sessions that Microsoft offers for improving sales and marketing. I also might attend some technical sessions to sharpen some of my technical skills as with the changing technology I feel like jumping back into doing some technical hands-on work. It makes me provide sound advice to customers on their journey to the cloud.
As head of Netwoven, I need to carefully understand Microsoft’s game plan for the cloud and where Microsoft will be making key bets and its expectations from the partner ecosystem. I am also looking forward to connecting with Microsoft partner teams and other partners. The last several Inspire events have provided me with some valuable partnerships that have provided great benefit to the customers.
If you are planning to come to Inspire and have an interesting product or service to offer for which you are looking for partners, reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
