Partner Take

Ric Opal, senior director at Oak Brook, Ill.-based SWC Technology Partners, told CRN previously that he thinks Microsoft is on to something with the approach of Microsoft 365.

"Instead of ordering three things, this gives all of the technology needed to participate in today's transformative workplace, yet in a very secure manner," Opal said. "If I can simplify that in my ordering and provisioning process, and wrap managed security services around that, that's a pretty simplistic way for me to bundle and a pretty simplistic way for a customer to transact."

Opal also said he sees a correlation between Microsoft's sales reorganization this year and the launch of Microsoft 365. "Not only are they simplifying the organizational structure, they appear to be simplifying the licensing to go along with it -- which plays right back to Microsoft's focused effort to be easy to work with," he said.
