Well, there has been some terrific momentum with our search products that our partners produce. As part of an initiative in H2 FY09, we launched a bi-monthly Search Partner Solutions Showcase Series directed to the Microsoft Field. These sessions are made available live as well as on-demand for easy field access and encompasses both sales and technical roles.

We identified some of our key partners and invited them to present for 30 minutes, in a joint session with another partner and share details and demos of their Search solutions that integrate or are built on Microsoft Enterprise Search technology. This series has been a great success with the field, with positive feedback including: “This is a great idea. More partner presentations on how they have customized technology, etc. would be great”

Promoting partner-to-partner connections is a critical element in our partner ecosystem development, and here we are sharing the recordings of some of the partner solutions showcased to the Microsoft Field.

We encourage you to review these and explore the opportunity for joint customer solutions with your peers in the Enterprise Search partner community. Feel free to contact the partners directly, where listed, for details, demos and more information about their solutions.
