Cannonball!

Some of the best opportunities for Microsoft solution provider partners emerge during the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference. A good way to figure out who might be launching interesting programs and products is to check out the list of major sponsors at WPC. There are a boatload of companies trying to make a splash in the Microsoft channel this year. Fujitsu and HP both laid out the big bucks for platinum sponsorships. The Gold sponsor list consists of Administaff, CA, Citrix, ExactShip, Intel, Kaseya, LG-Nortel, Micro Focus, OSIsoft, sitecore and Zenith Infotech Ltd. There are about 50 silver and bronze sponsors as well, including a little outfit you might have heard of by the name of Redmond Channel Partner magazine. Throughout the week we'll let you know what we can find out about the best opportunities that sponsoring vendors are trying to draw attention to.
