Glad to be back and I look forward to supporting the Vertical ISV partnership program for the U.S. market. I will use the MSDN online asset, in-person workshops and other resources to stay in touch with the ISV developers, architects, business and technical decision makers.
The VIPP program was announced at Worldwide Partner Conference back in July 2014 by our corporate VP Steve Guggenheimer. Below is an excerpt from his blog.
Technology is changing customer engagement in many industries, especially Healthcare, Retail, Government and Manufacturing, where an app revolution is underway. The market now demands context-aware apps that solve vertical-specific challenges. As applications become more ubiquitous in these industries, ISVs should be taking advantage of this momentum. To help capitalize on this trend, we’re here to help these ISVs quickly develop high-impact solutions. The VIPP program has been created to give our ISV partners resources for developing enterprise mobility solutions that leverage Microsoft Azure, among other technologies.
If you work at an ISV that serves one or more of the verticals listed above and you don’t currently have access to the Microsoft Marketing program, partner with us through VIPP. You’ll receive technical application development support on the Microsoft stack , as well as resources to help modernize legacy applications into the Mobile First, Cloud First world. Please email us at VIPPinfo@microsoft.com and we will put you in touch with our local teams to get you developing as quickly as possible.
