The program is designed for traditional and hybrid businesses, C-level and business decision makers (BDMs) at large partner organizations, and companies which deliver project-based, managed, and IP services.

The weekly Cloud Profitability web series features streaming videos to help Microsoft partners learn how to become profitable in the cloud. In addition, a cloud subject matter expert is on hand to answer live questions via a Q&A chat. The sessions take place every Wednesday at 8:30am Pacific Time and last a little less than an hour. You only need to sign up once to register for the complete series. Watch for a reminder one day prior to each session start.
