Webcast: Dynamics 365 in CSP for Infrastructure Partners

Dynamics is a historically tricky business for Microsoft's traditional infrastructure partners. Selling and implementing the business applications require a different skill set than what's required on the infrastructure side.

The way Microsoft is now packaging its new Dynamics 365 cloud service in the Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) business model makes the whole opportunity a lot more intriguing for partners who come from the Windows/Exchange/Office 365 side of the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN).

RCP is presenting a webcast tomorrow, May 23, for managed service providers (MSPs) and Office 365 partners who are curious about the Dynamics 365 market. I'll be moderating and giving a overview of the opportunity and trends.

Sponsoring the session and presenting with me are executives from SBS Group -- Jim Bowman, CEO, and Scott May, director of channel programs. SBS Group is a Master VAR in the Dynamics community. Earlier this year, SBS launched the Stratos Cloud Alliance within Microsoft's CSP framework.

It's one of the 11 U.S. CSP indirect providers -- companies like Ingram Micro, Tech Data, Synnex and SherWeb that resell Microsoft cloud services to other partners who can bundle them with additional services and set their own end-user pricing. What makes Stratos different is that it's the first of the indirect CSPs to approach the market from the Dynamics side, rather than from the general IT infrastructure side.

Join us tomorrow to find out how they're building Dynamics expertise into the CSP package and to get your questions answered about whether Dynamics 365 in the CSP model makes sense for you. Click here to register.
