Competency_Collaboration-and-Content.pptxThe momentum behind Microsoft SharePoint—with an estimated $US2.3 billion in revenue—just keeps building. Companies that earn the Microsoft Collaboration and Content competency (Systems Integrators, ISVs, and Value-Added Resellers) will be positioned to take full advantage of the partner opportunities with SharePoint.

A better way to increase your revenue

Organizations are actively looking at expanding the capabilities of their SharePoint investments to go beyond simple content management. This is great news for Microsoft partners, as the revenue opportunities are tremendous. By thinking beyond initial deployments, you can realize the full business value of a SharePoint investment.

Opportunities include helping customers effectively utilize advanced capabilities such as social and Enterprise Search, and implementing business-critical solutions with line-of-business (LOB) data coming from disparate systems surfaced in SharePoint. Take your solutions even further with Microsoft Office 365 and advanced capabilities across the broader Microsoft platform using business intelligence, advanced visualization, project and portfolio, business process management, and more.
