Less Than 2 Weeks to Worldwide Partner Conference

Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) is almost here and we have an exceptional partner experience planned for the 13,000+ attendees.

As I mentioned in my earlier blog on May 26, I am excited to be a Vision Keynote speaker on July 15, joining other Microsoft executives at WPC, including Satya Nadella, Kevin Turner and Phil Sorgen.  I will focus on the ISV opportunity, exploring the impact of disruption in a world of accelerating change, how innovation is critical to success and how Microsoft is can help your company out-innovate competitive threats.

To ensure that you make the most of your time at WPC, my team has developed a comprehensive WPC 2015 ISV Roadmap which includes:

  • Key list of ISV breakout sessions to attend
  • How to use Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) Connect to schedule sessions and networking meetings on your calendar
  • Overview of the new ISV Lounge located in the Commons
  • Helpful WPC resources
  • Links to ISV specific resources you will find useful

Be sure to download the ISV Roadmap to help you plan your WPC schedule.

Anyone not attending WPC will be able to view the Vision Keynotes on Monday, July 13 and Wednesday, July 15 on demand from the MPN portal, starting at 8:45AM Eastern Time.  Presentation decks for the breakout sessions will also be available shortly after the conference, via MPN Connect

I would also like to congratulate our partner of the year award winners, Lieberman Software for the Application Development Competency award and GE Healthcare for the Global Commercial ISV Alliance award.  Both companies demonstrated strong business value and return on investment to their customers.  I am looking forward to seeing them honored and recognized at WPC, along with all the other award winners.

Get ready for an amazing WPC!  See you in Orlando.
