Microsoft are going to be running two workshops on Cloud transformation.
Because cloud computing offers many perceived benefits to customers excitement in cloud computing continues to gain momentum. In fact, what we are really seeing today is a transformation in the IT and software industries much like what we saw in the 1980s when computing moved from mainframe to client-server computing. With any transformation comes opportunities but also uncertainty.
We have found that many partners are thinking about how they can take advantage of the new opportunities that cloud represents but are unsure as to how to move forward without impacting their current profitable business.
In order to support partners Microsoft has created a one day cloud transformation workshop which will take you through the different areas you may need to consider from compensating your sales floor, to profitability modeling, social media and developing your IP. Delivered by our cloud partner lead and an external consultant with 20 plus years’ experience of cloud and the channel this practical session will give you real life examples and tools to take away to plan your businesses’ move to the cloud.
Here are just a few areas we’ll cover in the session
· How and why to develop IP and or vertical solutions
· How to structure and compensate your sales team
· How to go to market in a cloud world
· How to maintain customer loyalty without giving away margin
· How to model the impact of adopting cloud on your P&L
