New Microsoft Channel Chief Charts Course to Cloud Profitability for Partners

Executives also highlight new products and services from Microsoft that foster a connected experience for consumers through the cloud.

At the annual Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference today, Jon Roskill, Microsoft Corp.’s new channel chief, addressed the Microsoft partner community for the first time. He unveiled business strategies and resources to help partners of all types seize new opportunities in the cloud. The company also detailed new products and services to help consumers tap into the cloud through all the screens in their lives—from the largest screen in the living room to the smallest screen in one’s pocket.

In his keynote address, Roskill, who took the helm earlier this month as corporate vice president of the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Group, spoke to partners about the industry transformation that is under way with the emergence of the cloud, and the opportunity that creates for partners to grow and evolve their businesses.

“The industry is at an inflection point, and Microsoft is leading the charge through what will be one of the biggest industry transformations of our time,” said Roskill. “Partners have always been fundamental to Microsoft’s business, and we are committed to helping our partners adapt and find the right cloud opportunities so we can grow and succeed together.”

Roskill detailed new tools, resources, and sales support that Microsoft is delivering to help partners plan and build profitable businesses in the cloud and advance their cloud knowledge, including partner opportunity guides for cloud services, the new Microsoft Cloud Essentials Pack and Microsoft Cloud Accelerate Program designation, and new solution incentives for partners. More information on Roskill’s announcements can be found on the Microsoft Partner Network.

ON THE CONSUMER SIDE…
In addition to Roskill’s keynote address, Andy Lees, senior vice president of the Mobile Communications Business, and Brad Brooks, corporate vice president of Windows Consumer Marketing and Product Management, showcased Windows Phone 7, Windows Live, Windows Phone, Xbox, and more. Lees announced that Windows Phone 7 will be complemented in the cloud by a new Windows Phone Live site that will also be home to the new Find My Phone feature that enables people to find and manage a missing phone with map, ring, lock, and erase capabilities—for free. More information can be found on the Windows Phone Blog.
