While Microsoft Inspire is a partner event, it is also a view into the future of Microsoft. It showcases where the firm is going with its technology and how that will drive better business outcomes and customer satisfaction through their partners.
Microsoft Inspire 2018 was a pivotal moment for Brillio. Brillio was featured as a top Microsoft partner by Executive Vice President of Azure Jason Zander at his worldwide Corenote. With our success in driving SAP on Azure, Brillio was upgraded to be a Microsoft Globally Managed Partner this year. Not only I’m thrilled for such an honor, I was truly inspired by the direction of Microsoft’s vision.
CEO of Microsoft Satya Nadella’s Corenote highlighted how Microsoft is differentiated. It could be summed up by these taglines:
Complete Toolchain for Developer
Consistent Operation Model across private, hybrid and public cloud
Limitless Data Estate to democratize AI
AI Enabled Mixed Reality Cloud
AI Infused Connected Business Cloud
The World’s Productivity Cloud
Microsoft will increase their investments into business solution accelerators to enable partners to drive business-led outcomes. With Brillio’s comprehensive Microsoft based digital transformation solutions, these capabilities will further enrich Brillio’s ability to create the experience enterprises love and drive better business outcomes. I’m also excited by the $3Bn in partner channel investment announced by Microsoft Channel Chief Gavriella Schuster.
In summary, I feel Brillio is in a great position to leverage this investment to improve the ROI of our customer engagements. This will be another great year in our journey of partnering with Microsoft!
