Microsoft’s Office 365 continues to zoom past milestone after milestone. Earlier this year, the company announced that it now has 50 million active monthly Office 365 business customers. Not only that, but Microsoft expects to see a $20 billion run rate for its commercial cloud products, including Office 365, by 2018.
Clearly, Microsoft’s cloud portfolio presents a tremendous opportunity for providers. That’s one reason why we’re excited to announce the official launch of our Microsoft CSP API integration. AppDirect was one of the earliest partners selected by Microsoft to build on its new CREST APIs, and now our partners are able to utilize the AppDirect platform to start selling Microsoft products faster than ever before.
Microsoft has invited AppDirect to join its team on its upcoming North American CSP Recruitment Roadshow. Over the next few weeks, we'll be spreading the word about AppDirect’s industry-leading CSP enablement capabilities at events across the country. These roadshows will take place in Dallas on September 15th, Washington, D.C. on September 30th, and Seattle on October 14th.
Our team will be on the ground for all three and we'll be available throughout the day for platform demos and to answer questions about our CSP enablement program and solutions. If you’ll be in town for any of these roadshow events, let us know; we’d love to meet up to talk about how we can help jumpstart your Microsoft sales. In the meantime, click here to learn more about what we’re doing to enable Microsoft CSPs. Hope to see you on the road!
