Feeling Inspired – Microsoft Inspire 2019 Takeaways
We’re back from Las Vegas to report that Microsoft Inspire 2019 did not disappoint. From attending the keynotes and parties to networking in The Hub, we enjoyed meeting with friends new and old last week.
With a theme of “together, we achieve more”, Inspire emphasized the successes of Microsoft and its partners throughout the past year. Similarly, we saw a huge focus on the customer – particularly, developing deeper relationships and listening to customer needs.
What we found most inspiring throughout the keynotes was the growth of Azure cloud platform, which is now the company’s largest segment by revenue for the first time! What wasn’t specifically called out was N3’s contribution to this growth. As a Microsoft cloud solutions engine, N3 is accountable for driving Microsoft revenue in the CSM (customer success) space, as well as a significant cloud sales engine in the US, Latin America, Europe and Asia for BizApps (Dynamics), Modern Workplace (O365) and Infrastructure (Azure).
Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, said “Ninety percent of the data that we have today was created today was created in the last two years. That’s the explosion of compute and data. We have 1 billion users of Windows, a couple billion smartphones. But 50 billion [endpoints are] all connected to the cloud. That’s what’s leading to us building out Azure as the world’s computer. We now have 54 data center regions.”
As a Microsoft partner, N3 is excited to be the fundamental engine to drive this growth in Microsoft’s FY20 across SMB, Corporate and Enterprise accounts, both direct and through the Microsoft Partner Channel.
