The Microsoft partner ecosystem plays a central role in our joint customers’ success and allows us to scale more quickly. Our partners develop innovative solutions across a range of industries and lead customers on their digital imperatives journey. I am looking forward to our biggest partner event, Microsoft Inspire, where you will learn how Microsoft enables you, the partners, to scale your solutions to help customers in every industry transform. Join me and my colleagues live from July 19 to 20 (or on-demand) to hear from Microsoft leaders on industry products, partner opportunities, and successes, and have the chance to put questions to our team of experts.

Our promise to partners

To help our partners benefit from the tremendous growth that we are seeing across industries, we have developed four primary value propositions:

  • Build. Our partners build on the Microsoft Cloud for industries (Manufacturing, Retail, Financial Services, Healthcare, Nonprofit) as a platform, using their capabilities to enrich solutions already in the market—either for a specific customer or at scale. The Microsoft Industry Cloud Platform helps industries transform with speed and agility, with solutions that address customer business needs. ​ 
  • Enrich. Partners make more of the Microsoft Cloud for Industry by building or updating software as a service (SaaS) or platform as a service (PaaS) solutions that take advantage of unmet customer needs. With unified data and analytics, partners can now remove traditional data siloes for customers and extend the core capabilities of the Cloud for Industry.
  • Unlock. Partners can unlock new revenue and high-value service opportunities, including adapting the Microsoft Cloud for Industry to each customer’s environment and business processes. Partners are empowered to start new conversations and solve new customer scenarios by leveraging our go-to-market (GTM) offers and incentives.
  • Scale. We facilitate strong partner-to-partner connections so they can bring the best value to our customers. They also can work with Microsoft to provide the best solutions for customers, and co-sell with Microsoft to understand customer needs and leverage the Microsoft sales team to advance customer opportunities.
