Allison Watson, our worldwide leader for the partner ecosystem was interviewed recently in Singapore on the topic of S+S and adoption rates expected in Asia.,39044164,62056650,00.htm

There is no question we are expecting strong take up in Australia as we ramp up availability of MS Online through Telstra (news on launch coming soon) and it will be interesting to see if we can drive greater growth than the US and UK for example. The Azure announcements at worldwide partner conference have of course introduced a third pillar to our S+S execution now (following partner hosted and MS Online) and we believe Azure will be an important consideration for development-centric audiences such as in-house corporate development teams and ISVs.
