Understanding the financial implications of cloud on your business

We constantly hear about the momentum of cloud growth in Australia and the opportunity it represents for Microsoft Partners to grow their profitability. But how do the numbers actually stack up? What does cloud mean for your P&L and what are some of the best practices for managing your P&L as you plan and build up your online services offerings including building recurring revenue streams and productising unique IP?

Hui Cheng Tan, Financial Controller at Microsoft Australia, has worked with a number of Microsoft Partners to help them understand the financial impact of growing their cloud offerings. We have teamed up with Hui Cheng to deliver a half day workshop for Microsoft Partners during which she will walk through some key financial modelling tools that you can tailor to your own organisation and adjust, depending on changing circumstances and your own services offerings, to give you a view of the impact on your business during the first years of offering online services. You can take this back to your business to drive further depth discussions on your strategy and business plan for growing your cloud business.
