Podcast 092: Microsoft Office 365 and Azure Cloud Partner Program Priorities

Todd Thibodeaux, CEO, CompTIA
CompTIA's Todd Thibodeaux
Microsoft’s Alyssa Fitzpatrick

Good evening, channel partners. Welcome to our latest ChannelE2E Podcast. This edition is a bit different from our usual approach. No phone calls here. Instead, CompTIA CEO Todd Thibodeaux and I interviewed took the stage at CompTIA ChannelCon 2017 to interview Microsoft General Manager of Worldwide Channel Sales Alyssa Fitzpatrick.

The three of us discuss how Microsoft has simplified its partner program in the past year. Plus, we zero in on new and emerging partner opportunities like Microsoft 365 (an Office 365 bundle with Windows 10 and more), Azure cloud and vertical market solutions.

Here's the podcast:
