Making Sense of Microsoft's Partner Priorities for 2019

Microsoft Inspire 2018 wraps up today, and partners are heading home from Las Vegas with a dizzying amount of news buzzing between their ears.

There were a lot of announcements around Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365 on the product side, but Microsoft also rolled out significant changes to the way that it works with partners.

With Microsoft's fiscal year 2019 just getting underway, it's critical for partners to understand those changes if they want to stay aligned with Redmond.

We've collected the top programs, priorities and payments for partners that Microsoft unveiled at Inspire and in the lead-up to the show. Download RCP's exclusive "Partner's Guide to Microsoft's Fiscal Year 2019" for details.

You'll get the lowdown on the Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program changes, the new Azure Expert MSP program, Microsoft AppSource, investments in the co-selling program and more.

Don't miss this opportunity to get a jump start on FY '19. The guide is available here (registration required).
