More Capabilities In ‘Next Few Months’

Microsoft plans to roll out new Azure for Operators capabilities in the next few months. “The operators that we work with are intensely interested in the ecosystem and the ecosystem participation from partners because they want the innovation,” he said.

Microsoft partners can also engage operators on more transitions to the cloud, from core networking to software and other areas. “For folks that are experienced at helping with that, there’s a lot of opportunity there,” Hakl said. “There’s a strong recognition that the skill sets there are going to be unique and that there’s a lot of transformation taking place and people are looking for assistance with that.
