    BBC gets Mixed Up


    I was in Redmond  most of last week so sadly missed our Mix UK event though I had a good commentary by following some of my favourite blogs. Even better than that though, the BBC has released their latest Digital Planet podcast and it's all about Mix - all 27 minutes of it.

    Microsoft Virtual Earth website makeover



    I blogged about VE last week in an attempt to get more partners interested with a platform that is solid and has huge potential - oh and you can make money from it!

    The VE folks have given their site a makeover and made the place very clean and easy to use. Check out the Business Benefits section and see examples like Harley Davidson, BP and Target.

    UK partners are thin on the ground so maybe you should steal a march?

    Office 2007 is a steal



    Get Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007 for just £38.95 - if you're a student. Or £12.95 for a 1 year subscription license. The approximate ERP is £599.99. Seriously, I had to check twice myself as that is ~90% off.

    There are some qualifying terms of course but if you're in education, you'd be mad not to.

    MyGeek - home IT support for £7 a month



    A new service from Geek Squad UK that provides 24/7 home IT Support. I love their site and the video to explain the service is brilliant - not patronizing, very accessible and quite fun.

    The home IT user in the UK has long needed this kind of thing and I honestly hope they're very successful with it. I have no affiliation with these guys though I did meet them a while back and found them very engaging so if you need home IT support, maybe worth a look given their introductory offer of £7 a month.

    Get paid by Microsoft to deliver a deployment plan


    Microsoft SharePoint Deployment Planning Services (SDPS) is how and given the high level of interest I have witnessed in SharePoint over the last few months, this makes a lot of sense.

    As you'd expect, there are a few pre-requisites but nothing a SharePoint expert partner wouldn't have anyway. You can then get SDPS training.

    SDPS training includes:

      • Introduction to MOSS 2007
      • Administration
      • Content Management
      • Infopath Forms
      • Business Intelligence Solutions

    SDPS training is designed to prepare your consultants to pass the certification exam required for this exciting new program. Depending on their level of deployment planning experience, this can be used as a great refresher or to get them started. To deliver SharePoint Deployment Planning Services, your consultants must pass the test and get certified.

    Once your consultants pass one or both of the the Microsoft Learning certification exams and get certified, your company will be eligible to update your registration with the Microsoft Partner Program and highlight your solution in the Office System Solution Directory (OSSD). Your company will be displayed on the list of Packaged Service Providers.
