by Julie Golding, U.S. MPN Lead
Each month in the U.S. partner newsletter, Julie Golding delivers a message to Microsoft Action Pack Solution Provider (SP) and Microsoft Action Pack Development and Design (DD) subscribers, offering information about growth and engagement opportunities and tips for utilizing the benefits of the subscription. As the U.S. lead for the Microsoft Partner Network, Julie is responsible for Microsoft competencies and Action Pack subscriptions.
With the release of Windows 8 just a few days away, here are my recommendations for resources to help partner IT pros and developers prepare for the new hardware, application, and services opportunities Windows 8 will bring. Don’t forget that Action Pack subscribers have access to download and use Windows 8 software now, as part of your software benefits. If you’re not an Action Pack subscriber, get details and find out how to subscribe.
We’ve compiled an online guide for partners to help you prepare for Windows 8 and take advantage of Microsoft Partner Network benefits like training. In addition to more technical training and resources like what I’ve noted above, you’ll find links to build your product knowledge, get sales and licensing personnel trained, create demand for your Windows 8 solutions, and more.
