7 Things Microsoft Will Be Talking About At Its 2014 Worldwide Partner Conference


On The Agenda

Next week in Washington, D.C., Microsoft will hold its annual Worldwide Partner Conference, which typically attracts more attendees than any of the many other events the vendor holds throughout the year. Last year's WPC in Houston attracted some 16,000 partners, and it's likely at least that many will flock to the nation's capital to hear about the latest and greatest Microsoft has in store for fiscal 2015.

This year, Microsoft is preparing to unveil a fusillade of Azure-related news. Which is good, since Microsoft will be opening up Azure for the channel to sell starting next month.

Microsoft also has lots of news in store for Office 365, which it claims is the fastest-growing product in its history, selling at a $2.5 billion annual rate.

Whether you're going to WPC, or watching the developments unfold on social media at home on your couch, be sure to check out the following news items that are coming next week at the event.
