Big Changes Coming to the Microsoft Partner Program

Robert Deshaies won't confirm the code-name "Octane," but he does say that big changes are coming to the Microsoft Partner Program. Deshaies, vice president in charge of the Microsoft U.S. Partner Group, gave the keynote speech Wednesday morning at Redmond Channel Partner magazine's TechPartner conference in Orlando, Fla.

Deshaies told attendees that Microsoft will announce changes to the partner program at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, July 10-12 in Denver. While Microsoft has tweaked the partner program over the last few years, the last major overhaul came three years ago. We'll be in Denver for the WPC to keep you posted on all the important details.
