25 Seats For Internal Use
Microsoft is offering 25 seats of Office 365 to deploy internally for partners that sign up for the company's Cloud Essentials program. Jon Roskill (pictured), corporate vice president of Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Group, told CRN that Microsoft wants VARs to use it in order to better understand what they're selling. "If they use it, they will be better at promoting it and selling it. We like to say, 'You have to use the cloud to sell the cloud,'" Roskill said.
