If you are considering a move to the cloud, you may need to re-think your approach to all aspects of your business—including marketing, IT purchases, sales compensation, and customer relationship management. The Cloud Profitability Program (CPP) scales Microsoft insights on cloud via virtual events and on-demand resources, with the goal to help Microsoft partners build and grow their cloud practices. 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.
