‘It’s up to 80 percent less expensive to run Windows Server VMs (virtual machines) on Azure and SQL Server VMs on Azure than it is with our main competitor,’ Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella says.
‘Bet On Us’ For Faster Growth, Higher Margins
The Microsoft Cloud is the only cloud that allows you to take advantage of both best-of-category products as well as best-of-suite solutions across the entire tech stack in every area that matters most to our customers so that they can do more with less.
We want to be the best partner for our partners, and we are investing in your success. We are committed to helping you better meet customer needs by helping you gain specializations in deep technical training across all the solution areas I’ve talked about today.
We made it easier for you to engage with us and drive your own profitability, which is why we lowered our marketplace transaction fee from 20 (percent) to 3 percent, so you can invest more deeply in your own growth.
And today we’re announcing additional investments including free access to our best-in-class developer tooling to help ISVs build and publish their apps faster.
The numbers speak for themselves – partners who bet on us grow faster and generate higher margins. And for every dollar in revenue we generate, partners who build differentiated software solutions on the Microsoft Cloud generate $10 more.
But it goes beyond that. We want you to be successful so that you can help the world around us be more successful. It’s never been more important to connect what we build to what the world needs us to build. This is our collective purpose.
