Innovate

Innovation is about modernizing existing apps or building next-generation cloud-native apps that help your customers unleash the power of Azure.


Partners can establish themselves as trusted transformation advisers by guiding customers toward the right strategies for modernizing or writing new apps. This in turn establishes a natural entry point for partners to help customers leverage advanced Azure services, such as AI and analytics.

Enable

By setting up a strong foundation for customers that’s rooted in the right governance, security, architectural, and DevOps models, partners can establish a great ongoing business stream and ensure deep customer satisfaction with Azure and partner services.
