One-on-one partner assistance to grow your cloud business



Remote work and online business are accelerating fast, security concerns have long been a concern but continue to grow each day, and partners need to continue to build or expand their cloud services to address customer’s growing needs.  


The Microsoft Partner Network offers its members a wealth of resources to help partners grow their cloud business, and we know navigating these resources can seem overwhelming at times. To help with that, the Cloud Enablement Desk offers partners a guided experience in which a Microsoft cloud specialist identifies your business needs and connects you with the right resources and benefits to build your Microsoft cloud practice.
