For many ISVs like GSX Solutions, working with Microsoft is both a challenge and an opportunity. The Microsoft partner organization can be difficult to maneuver without a dedicated team. Not every partner has the kind of resources to manage this relationship.
At the recent Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC), speakers revealed the latest Office 365 metrics. Office 365 now presents an annual revenue run rate of $2.5 billion for Microsoft. Sixty percent of all Fortune 500 companies purchased Office 365 in the last 12 months and more than three out of four Office 365 customers are deployed by partners.
“When we work together, we do more.” That was the slogan of day 3 at the Worldwide Partner Conference here in Washington, D.C.
Phil Sorgen opened the talk by presenting four pillars he believes in when it comes to supporting Microsoft Partners:
Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Washington, D.C., and I can honestly say that I was far from disappointed.
The first day alone was filled with exciting speakers who boasted this idea of a “Mobile First, Cloud First World” the new MOJO of Satya Nadella. While several incredibly well-informed and enthralling speakers were featured, one that mainly stood out was Kevin Turner, COO of Microsoft.
The Worldwide Partner Conference 2014 being close, the GSX Solutions team's Partner Account Managers are fully booked when it comes to meetings with our valuable partners.

The countdown has already started as we are 4 days before THE most important Microsoft show dedicated to partners. All Microsoft Partners must be wondering, "What's going on in WPC this year?" Well, let me tell you everything about it!
We arrived in Kassel (Germany) earlier this week for the DPK 2013 German Microsoft Partners conference - we like to call it a “mini WPC”. GSX was proud to be a sponsor of this year's event, as it's a great place to network and speak with potential Partners. It was a great turnout, there were about 1600 attendees this year...That's 400 more than last year!
Events for monitoring, reporting, performance and usage of IT infrastructure happen almost every day in the United States.
