Steve Ballmer in the UK

Microsoft have announced a series of Business Briefing events entitled “Transitioning to the Cloud”, taking place across the UK during September and October. The aim is to help Microsoft Partners support their customers with the transition to the Cloud and increase profits.

Briefings in Edinburgh, Manchester and Birmingham will feature specialist tracks on CRM Online, Windows Azure ‘The Cloud Platform’ and Microsoft Online Services, while the London briefing will replace these tracks with guest speaker, Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer. If you’ve not seen Mr. Ballmer up close and personal before – it’s a (loud) experience! 🙂

  • CRM Online Track: designed for partners who do not currently sell a CRM solution and want to understand the opportunities that development of a CRM-based solution in the cloud might offer.
  • New Windows Azure Track – The Cloud Platform: for partners who want to open up new markets by building new products on the Windows Azure platform. Learn about the options and opportunities.
  • Online Services Track: learn about what they are, how to sell them, making money and signing up…

Other agenda items encapsulate updates on product roadmaps, Partner Network benefits information as well as Q&A sessions with industry experts.

The briefings form part of a number of events planned over the next 12 months. They are incredibly popular events so if you’re a Microsoft Partner, then register now to secure your place:
