Windows Azure Briefings in the US East Region

I wanted to pass along information about these Azure events in the East in December.


We’ve all heard about the industry shift to the Cloud, but are you jumpstarting your Windows Azure business to be a part of it?

You are cordially invited to attend the fall Professional Developer Partner Briefing. You will not just hear the usual, but you will hear new insights and points of views from Microsoft’s well-known industry experts and a perspective from a leading edge partner company on what the Windows Azure opportunity means for your organization. We will demonstrate how you will be able to change the face of your business and introduce new revenue streams for building solutions for our customers.

Have you pondered the business opportunity behind Azure?  

Do you want to know how to:

  • Leverage the opportunity and get started / engage your customer?
  • Assess an organization for Azure and help them determine their S+S strategy?
  • Compute cloud charges and determine the ROI of migrating to the cloud?
  • Determine what best practices to apply in migrating applications to Azure?

At this briefing you will:

  • Receive a recap of key highlights and announcements about Windows Azure
  • Hear from a leading Azure partner on how to get-started identifying and developing Azure opportunities
  • Hear from peers within your network about real projects and business development initiatives
  • Participate in an ask-the-experts panel discussion to get the answers you need to move forward with Azure

Who should attend?

This is a business development briefing for Microsoft Partners, specifically system integrators, who build custom developed solutions.  Partner attendees most likely to benefit from this briefing include:
