A Blog Series for U.S. Partners by Jenni Flinders, Microsoft U.S. Vice President, Partner Strategy and Programs
There is strength in our numbers. At no time was that more evident than at the 2011 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) in Los Angeles a few short weeks ago. It’s the foundation upon which the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) is premised: Microsoft and our valued partners are collectively better able to win together in the marketplace than we are individually.
Many of you shared with me that WPC 2011 provided unprecedented opportunities for learning, connecting, and strategizing for the future of your businesses. We went into the Conference confident that it would be more effective and exciting than ever, and according to you, we exceeded expectations with content and events like:
Since the Conference, partners have also been telling us about their remarkable experiences while at WPC. Here are examples of the positive feedback we’ve received.
In my meetings with partners at WPC, I learned about their visions and objectives for the upcoming year in the areas of cloud computing and other business productivity solutions. I will use that input to continue to shape Microsoft’s partner initiatives this year. We hope that WPC offered you access to and information about resources that allow you to deepen revenue streams and customer relationships, particularly in cloud-based offerings.
WPC is more than just a “networking event.” It is a critical yearly touch point that drives MPN’s success. Simply put, we win together when we get together. Through MPN, successful partners bring together the complete set of skills and solutions required to solve complex business problems. You are Microsoft’s competitive differentiator.
To extend the dialogue we began at WPC, I look forward to our continued engagement throughout the year. Please visit this blog regularly for the latest MPN developments, and feel free to engage with me directly through Twitter, @Jenni_Flinders. I want to keep hearing from you so that we all win together in the coming year!
