This Thursday, I will be hosting the next MPN Live round-table show from our Microsoft Worldwide Headquarters right here in Redmond, Washington. I’m excited that hosting our discussion will be our Corporate Vice President of the Worldwide Partner Group, Jon Roskill. In addition, we have a great line-up of partner guests joining us for this session, both in person here in Redmond, and joining us virtually via Lync. As always, I also look forward to all of you joining via our social channels, and I’ll be including your comments and questions during the show.

The topic for this session will be “Worldwide Cloudification.” What is “cloudification” you ask? Here’s a quick idea of some of the themes for the conversation:

  1. Growing your business with cloud
    • Cloud in Microsoft products and platforms
    • Cloud in partner businesses
  2. On-premise and the future
    • On-premise
    • Private cloud
    • Public cloud

Want to learn more and get the full scoop? Well, you will definitely want to join us this Thursday morning to hear more from Jon and all of the guests. Smile
