Hello partners,

 

I would like to share another option for the migration of dynamics365 into the cloud or from cloud to cloud.

As a Microsoft partner with other long-standing Microsoft partners with experience in migrating Dynamics 365, we have created our own application some years ago, which is constantly being updated in order to be used as flexibly as possible in the needs of customers.

 

Our tool has many unique selling points and is able to perform a delta migration, for example.

I really love to show how the #CRMtoOnline works via webcon, so that future partners can recognize the user-friendly structure and to answer simultaneously any questions that may arise and to share further tipps and information.

 

Over the last few months I have received extremely positive feedback on this and it is a lot of fun to work with the partners and customers.

 

For a quick glance check here and you may as well pull a trial licence for own experiences.

Hello everyone,

 

I notice that the initial post was made back in 2017. I am wondering whether this initiative is still active. I could certainly do with some mentoring/coaching.

 

The good news is that our blockchain enabled records management system has been accepted into the Co-Sell program. I am working on getting the Silver Cloud Platform status, but can't do so until I have at least the $15,000 customer Azure consumption.

 

I am looking for strategic partners that may be interested in the work that we have done with blockchain. Here is a link to the white paper.

 

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Thanks for reaching out! Blockchan is outside my scope of expertise knowledge, but happy to assist if you have any general questions regarding your partnership strategy and how to take it to the next level.

Hello All, 

My name is Robb Patterson from the New York Metro Area. I am Director of Sales and Marketing for Progressive Computing, Inc. With offices in Manhattan and Westchester County, we have just celebrated our 25th year! We are a managed services provider with a focus on businesses with 25 - 100 employees. 

Back in the heyday of Small Business Server, I started a peer group in NYC for Microsoft Partners. In a way, that makes me part of the old guard 🙂 That group is still in existence, with members meeting once a month.

Representatives of Progressive Computing have been on the PAL team through different versions. I am excited to be one of the Influencers! I am also honored to sit on the Board of Directors for the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce. If you are in the NYC area, we can always grab a cup of coffee or share some networking time. 

I spend my days trying to unravel the sales and marketing mysteries of a 25 person SMB. We are active in HTG, Robin Robins and Chartec. We also implemented the EOS (Entrepreneurial Operating System - from the book Traction) about 5 years ago. 

I believe in being a true "Go-Giver" in the community. While my tech days (and knowledge) are far behind me, I am happy to discuss any of the topics listed above. Marketing especially is always a moving target for the SMB community. I know we can learn a lot from each other. 

I look forward to contributing any way I can. 

Robb

Hi all,

What a great and genius idea than gathering influencer team and partners around the same table to exchange on major topics in order to make the transition to the  Cloud and emerging technologies soft and easier. This wonderful initiative will enable partners never mind the region they are located in, to access and share Microsoft Partner information.

In fact, disruptive technologies evolve on such a high speed that knowledge sharing is the only reliable way for different members of the community to update  and sharpen their level of expertise. Furthermore, in terms of cost and time management, this kind of learning is far more accessible than the traditional face to face meetings.

Hi there,

I am Emile Stam, your partner influencer in The Netherlands. In my daily life I am the marketing and communications manager at Open Line.  Open Line is a managed cloud services provider and CSP. As managed services provider we offer datacenter and cloud services both on premise as in the public cloud (azure and Azure Stack). A true hybrid cloud provider with a focus on trusted services. I am proud to say that we have a 100% outsourcing recommendation score and the highest amount of superfans in The Netherlands. This score was given by our customers as a result of the Giarte Outsourcing Performance Survery in 2017. The reason why I mention this score is because this score only partly depends on our technical skills, but largely is given because of the way we deliver our services. We focus on customer experience and customer relevance on top of the traditional service levels. A different approach where we add a face to our services that the customer knows and trusts.

Where Microsoft offers excellent solutions to the world in order to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more, I truly believe that they need us (you and me) to do so. Microsoft offers a great foundation for us as partners to empower our customers, but also our companies, to achieve more.

In the past seven years I have worked closely with Microsoft and found it to be a second home. The trick is to find the right persons and information. The reality is that this needs work and I am here to help you, when help is needed. In a fast world, the world we live in, there are numerous initiatives and new companies every single day. What you will see is that Microsoft will be the ecosystem enabler of the future. But to do so, they need to know you. So don't be shy, just knock on the door. If they don't open, we are there to help you and share out best practices.

Looking forward to meeting you,

Emile

G'Day from sunny Sydney in Australia. My name is Melanie Unwin and I'm a Brit living in Sydney having settled here 4 years ago (so talking about the weather comes very naturally to me!)

I'm Co-Founder and Director of Marketing-as-a-Service provider Mogrify - in short we work with partners to help move their marketing from the traditional ad hoc marketing campaign approach to building an 'always on' marketing engine. Our services cover marketing strategy, content creation, social media, events management, web design and more!

In terms of my experience, I first co-founded a digital marketing training business in the UK and US (which we sold last year), then worked in a Consultancy in Australia before setting up my own business after seeing a HUGE gap in the market for an organisation that works with partners from creating their marketing strategy to actually implementing it (and everything in-between). We love working with Microsoft partners - every business is unique and we are inspired every day by our customers, some of which are literally changing the world with their technology solutions!

Look forward to interacting on this forum and others as part of this program.

Greetings from sunny Brisbane, Australia! It's winter here, but I can't complain about blue skies and 23C/73F. You need to read this in the voice of a kiwi accent though and I still support the All Blacks.

I'm a systems administrator/architect at heart, having grown up in the server room of large banks and government departments. I have a Windows NT4.0 Core Technologies certificate, a PCLP certification in Lotus Domino R5 & I'm fluent in troubleshooting SMTP. Here ends the history lesson!

For the past 12 years I've been working with SMBs as a Managed Services Provider. I'm now focussing on virtual CIO services as co-founder of The Missing Chair. This pivot has a story behind it too, as we've shifted to address a more pressing probem in the SMB space.

You might already follow me on Twitter, or maybe you've seen some articles I publish online as a freelance writer, or you've seen me speak on stage. You can find my public profile & activities here at Soniacuff.com which have earnt me a Microsoft MVP title.  

I'm passionate about what SMBs can do with the right use of Microsoft Cloud technologies. I love talking about where technology can make a difference, in conjunction with a change of habits and/or business processes. And I also have a heart for the challenges that we face as Microsoft Partners. It's an exciting world, as concepts like AI and the Future of Work have entered the scene, and there are amazing opportunities to cut through the hype and achieve amazing results for our customers.

Hello from Washington, DC!  Now that Inspire has left town it's back to business and politics as usual.

I am Steve Hall and I'm the CEO of District Computers.  We're an IT consulting and managed services provider focused on helping small to mid-sized businesses grow and operate more efficiently and securely.

We're a 15+ year Microsoft Partner, and I, like many of my peers here was part of the SMB PAL program before this.  I also sit on the WPC/Inspire Partner Engagement Board (2013 - Present) and I have been a speaker at several of Microsoft's major conferences in years' past.

I love partners and partnering.  I look forward to helping you engage and build stronger relationships with Microsoft and other partners whereever they are.

Outside of my "Microsoft Partner Life (#MPL)" I a father of 3 boys and an avid sports fan who's still trying to compete with athletes 15 years younger in basketball :).  I enjoy outdoors and coaching kids (basketball and American football) also.

I look forward to being active here and hopefully we will engage here or in person some day (maybe Inspire next year in Las Vegas?).
