The program, aimed largely at Microsoft's network of business partners, includes
an assessment tool called the Business Productivity Infrastructure Analyzer.
This tool allows partners to collect important information about a particular
company's infrastructure, including what sorts of servers it has for identity
management or whether it has any sort of automated process for patching server
and desktop software.
Microsoft is scheduled in October to conduct a training event in Chicago that
will provide more details on how the program can benefit business partners.
Microsoft officials said they're hoping to establish a better understanding
with how its business partners operate in the context of BPIO by giving them
the opportunity to be trained side by side.
