A Blog Series for U.S. Partners by Jenni Flinders, Microsoft U.S. Vice President, Partner Strategy and Programs.
Microsoft partners continue to ask me questions about where their business fits in the cloud, and I think that’s a great sign. Asking questions is essential to growth, and our most successful partners ask lots of them because they aren’t selling products or services…they are selling customer-focused solutions.
I’m excited about a new wave of data and resources that can assist you in making the important decisions about whether to integrate a cloud offering into your business. You’re familiar with the “five W’s”: Who, What, Where, When, and Why? Let’s use them to explore recent and upcoming news and perspectives, including findings from a recent IDC study on the cloud’s business and economic impact.
I realize that many of you have questions about how your business fits into the cloud marketplace, and how the cloud fits into your customers’ worlds. Explore the above resources and let them guide you toward building more strategic customer relationships, and continue to ask me your questions around cloud services and trends on Twitter @Jenni_Flinders. My goal is to help you arrive at the right answer for your business.
