Episode 105: Microsoft Cloud & Hosting Partner Monthly Online Meeting | Partner Transformation plus Azure Stack, News and Technical Hints

Hi everyone, just letting you know that our December Online Meeting is set for Wednesday December 4, 1:00-2:00 (Melbourne time) and will have two, yes 2, focus topics.  Firstly we'll look at “Partner Transformation” providing an update on Modern Commerce, Partner Center, the new Agreements and more.  Then we have one of the Senior Specialist for Azure providing an “Update on Azure Stack” which offers our partners the ability to deliver industry leading hybrid solutions across Infrastructure services, data services and hub services.   As always, the online meeting will also cover the latest licensing and program news, and look at forthcoming online and in person events in the “News, Views and Venues” segment. 



The topics for this session will be


Licensing Updates

What’s new in SPLA, CSP and changes to licensing plus a look at Recently Asked Questions. 

Partner Transformation

Our first focus topic will provide you with an update on Partner Transformation which is a broad term covering recent changes in Azure Modern Commerce, in other words, how Azure is transacted and incentives are earned across various acquisition models; the new set of Security Requirements for Partner Center; and the new Partner and Customer Agreements.

Azure Stack Updates

The second feature topic offers our partners a chance to learn about the changes in the Azure Stack family and consider the opportunities presented for hybrid solutions across Infrastructure, Data and Hub services.   Azure Stack continues to lead the way in enabling partners to consider on-premise and cloud requirements of a customer and meet them squarely with a best of both worlds approach.
