The past 12 months marked a period of transformation for Microsoft and its channel partners. The next 12 months, however, will be all about acceleration. That's the message from two of Microsoft's key channel leaders Monday, during keynotes kicking off the Inspire 2018 partner conference in Las Vegas. In their keynotes, Judson Althoff, executive vice president of Microsoft's Worldwide Commercial Business organization, and Gavriella Schuster, corporate vice president of Microsoft's One Commercial Partner organization, outlined the key opportunities for partners and the investments that Microsoft is focused on making in the coming year. Schuster pointed to IDC research that suggests partners earned nearly $1 trillion over the past fiscal year through working with Microsoft services -- and that figure, she said, will only grow in the future.

What follows are five key takeaways from Schuster and Althoff's keynotes at Microsoft Inspire 2018.
