Here at Microsoft Australia we are incredibly proud of our partner ecosystem and the role you all play in helping our customers have great experiences with Microsoft products and services.
In 2014 we conducted our very first impact study which provided great insight into the contribution Microsoft has on the Australian economy, 2 years on we are refreshing this data to help us better tell our joint story and to inform us of areas we can provide tools and support for you locally.
The insights from the first study informed the creation tools such as
- SureStep Profitability Benchmarking tool - which provides guidance and best practices on building a profitable cloud business
- Smart Partner Marketing - Great resources to help your teams develop digital marketing capability
- Partner Next - Our always on webinar series covering a variety of business topics
- Business Workshops - Face to face sessions addressing key business growth topics
- The Modern Microsoft Partner Series, Part 1: The Booming Cloud Opportunity - the latest global research from IDC
It also defined the types of content we created for you at our annual Australia Partner Conference on the Gold Coast.
This study not only covers the economic impact to Australia but also will provide you with a local benchmark for you organisation across sales, marketing and technical skills and may assist in discovering other areas of opportunities in the local market.
