CIOs are looking to cloud computing for delivery of ICT capabilities, and that is no different for education customers. In education, there's an emphasis on mobility, and supporting students and teachers using their own personal devices.
Microsoft has a free version of Office 365 – Office 365 for education – that's available for all Australian education customers that provides a suite of online services free to students, faculty and staff. This creates a very compelling opportunity for partners to generate migration and deployment revenue for customers moving from on-premise systems or competing cloud solutions.
For Microsoft partners who aren't yet active with Office 365 for education, we're running an introductory webinar next, Tuesday 12 Feb, on how Microsoft Office 365 can add value to your education customers and the services opportunity for partners, run by the Australian Product Manager for Office 365 for education.
Date: Tuesday 12th February 2013
Time: 1pm to 2pm (AEST)
The partner webinar will be run using Lync. You can join Lync Meeting even if you're not already a Lync user, by joining using the web client. Alternatively, you can join by phone by using our telephone conferencing system (call +61298702923 and use Conference ID: 92566341).
