Microsoft Channel Execs To Talk MPN

Four months into the new Microsoft Partner Network, the massive overhaul to Microsoft's partner ecosystem still holds as many questions as answers for many partners.

Senior Microsoft channel executives will be dedicating 90 minutes to trying to clear up some of the uncertainty during an interactive webinar on Thursday.

"During this session, we will be discussing topics, questions, concerns, misconceptions and more that we have heard from partners around the world regarding the Microsoft Partner Network to help address and answer these for you, the Microsoft partners," Microsoft wrote in a description of the session.

Staffing the webinar are Microsoft's heaviest-hitting channel executives from the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Group. They include Corporate Vice President Jon Roskill, Microsoft Partner Network General Manager Julie Bennani, Vice President of Worldwide Partner Sales Ross Brown, and Karl Noakes, general manager of Microsoft Partner Strategy and Programs.

In addition to covering topics like "Which is right for you: Action Pack, silver competency or gold competency" and "Revenue requirements in Microsoft Partner Network," the executives will take questions.

Roskill has been remarkably open to tough questions in partner forums, and fairly forthright in his answers in the past -- it could make for a worthwhile session and not just marketing speak.
