Last week I put up my Microsoft Partner Network Interactive Leadership Forum replay now online post, which included a video snippet of Jon Roskill’s opening comments regarding partners and the Microsoft Partner Network from the Microsoft Partner Network Interactive Leadership Forum. Today, I am sharing another snippet from the Microsoft Partner Network Interactive Leadership Forum, this time from Julie Bennani, General Manager of the Microsoft Partner Network as she discusses some of the design principles behind the Microsoft Partner Network:
If you have been following me or my blog for any amount of time, one thing you have hopefully heard and seen as a recurring theme is, Microsoft is committed to connecting with and hearing from partners on an ongoing basis to continue to grow and build the best partner ecosystem in the world. I think this quote from Julie in the video snippet above does a good job of reflecting that commitment by Microsoft:
“we talked to customers, we talked to you, we talked to our product groups, we talked to the field, and we coalesced that feedback into some key things that we wanted the Microsoft Partner Network to stand for.”
It is all about enabling businesses around the world to be successful and grow their businesses through the use of Microsoft technology, and that is delivered though our partnership with you, the members of the Microsoft Partner Network. One stat that Jon Roskill shared in his opening comments that really highlights that joint success between Microsoft and it's partners is, “For every $1.00 of Microsoft software that is sold, partners make an $8.70 multiplier on top of that.”
If you were unable to join us for the Microsoft Partner Network Interactive Leadership Forum, the full replay of the session is now available online for you to view. You can view it online here.
