Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2014
Microsoft has their Worldwide Partner Conference each year in July. The conference draws such a large number of attendees from around the globe, that only a small number of cities in North America can host such an event. Washington, D.C. was the host city for this year’s conference.
RoseBud has attended 10 Worldwide Partner Conferences (WPC) – we now have a pin to commemorate that. Each time we attend WPC, we come away with unique insights of how Microsoft technology can continue to help our customers. It’s a great opportunity to understand what’s coming from Microsoft and their focus as a business. While we could go on about the presentations and technologies coming, we’d like to share how this WPC was extra special.
Many of our clients know our story as a company – family owned, personal engagement, high touch, unbiased approach to business solutions – and now so does Microsoft. RoseBud Technologies is a bit of an anomaly when it comes to Microsoft Partner companies, particularly those successfully working in “the cloud.” The transition we made – with you, our clients – from on premise support and traditional network infrastructure to cloud platforms and consulting was not easy. The fact that we made the transition, and not only kept our customers, but increased their number and lived to tell about it is something very special.
In fact, not only special but somewhat unbelievable, Microsoft conducted a case study about our business and how we moved from the old way to the cloud and helped our customers do the same. The case study then became a blog post on the Worldwide Partner Conference web site for all 13000+ attendees to read. It didn’t stop there. We were invited to present at the partner conference to Partners about how they and their clients can make this transition.
We do realize that our success is based on your success. Our customers have trusted us to guide them through migrations, transitions, new technologies, and new ways of doing things. It’s not always been easy, but together we have gotten over the rough spots.
We are all still very much at the beginning of this journey into “the cloud.” Office 365 offers a great variety of capabilities and we want to be sure that you are getting every bit of return from your investment in “the cloud.”
So, we invite you to schedule 60 minutes with us to review how your business is using Office 365 and to be sure it using these services to their fullest potential. Take a look at the list below to get some idea of the capabilities available to you.
