Hello ISV audience and welcome back to the ISV team blog! We took a short hiatus for the summer as we reorganized and reenergized in anticipation of the Windows 7 launch this autumn. With just a few short weeks to go until the consumer launch of Windows 7, we want to send a special thank you to the following partners for their amazing support and partnership on this launch:
- Platinum Launch Sponsors: Citrix, Cisco, EMC, HP, Fujitsu, Infosys, IBM, Kaspersky, NetApp, Symantec and Seagate
- Gold Launch Sponsors: Open Text and Trend Micro
- Silver Launch Sponsors Iron Mountain and Quest Software
In the coming weeks, you will see a long-list of trusted partners announcing their support of Windows 7, as well as previewing how their applications will integrate with the newest and most exciting features of Windows 7, such as its touch-capabilities. Our partners are participating globally in virtual launch events, launch parties hosted at consumers’ homes, social media activities, press events and more. Some of the partners you’ll be hearing about soon include: CeWe, Sonic/Roxio, Corel, Nero, Nuance, Autodesk and more!
The news about Windows 7 has been trickling for a while now, but that’s about to change when the flood gates open as Microsoft and our ISV partners come out in full force October 22.
Warm Windows 7 Regards,
Director, Global Partners Team
