The Worldwide Licensing and Pricing team will conduct its first “Tweet Chat” from the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) in Los Angeles (July 11-14). This is your chance to ask questions about Microsoft Volume Licensing and get real-time feedback—with a twist! Instead of simply replying via Twitter, we’ll have subject matter experts on Volume Licensing respond via short videos tweeted out to followers of @Msft_VL. This way we can provide more in-depth answers beyond 140 characters.
Now that we’re well into 2011 and kicking off Microsoft’s new 2012 fiscal year with the Worldwide Partner Conference, we continue to hear that for many companies, this is the year they’ve resolved to move some or all of their applications to the cloud.

WWLP has recently published a variety of case studies showcasing how partners are helping customers leverage flexible licensing and financing options to take advantage of cloud computing models. Volume Licensing Partner of the Year, CDW, and award finalist SoftwareONE are among those profiled; excerpts and links below.
