Poised For Acceleration

Schuster said that Microsoft and its partners had "an incredible year together" over the past 12 months, with huge growth in areas such as Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365. One key metric: Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) revenue is up 234 percent compared with a year ago, she noted. "I don't know if [the growth] was in spite of, or because of, all the changes" at Microsoft, she said. But going through the massive reorganization means that Microsoft and channel partners are now in an even better position for growth in the coming year -- something Microsoft is hoping to ramp up even further by bringing its own salespeople together with partners at Inspire this year for the first time. "We're going to learn together, we're going to build together, we're going to plan together," Schuster said. "This is the week that gets us off to the fastest start to a fiscal year that we've ever had."
