The Modern Workplace: Packing More Partner Value into Microsoft 365

The Modern Workplace: Packing More Partner Value into Microsoft 365

The modern workplace is a critical part of the digital transformation vision Microsoft has for our partners. We are constantly making it easier for you to translate the needs of customers into innovative modern workplace solutions. As we start 2019, I want to share some of our recent investments across all areas of Microsoft 365 that will open new value for partners and benefits for customers. I hope you’ll leverage the offerings below to build and accelerate your own Modern Workplace practice.

You Should Empower Your Employees with Secure and Compliant Services

Your customers have made it clear: moving to a modern workplace requires assurance that IT can maintain its security and compliance obligations. In an age of mobile-connected workforces, sophisticated cybersecurity threats, and complex regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the ability to reduce risk while enabling workforce transformation is a key driver of Microsoft 365 adoption.

In fact, Forrester has identified a partner opportunity with Microsoft 365 can yield upwards of $19 per user, per month in recurring revenue for security and compliance solutions. To accelerate a modern workplace security and compliance practice, I’m excited to introduce two new security and compliance offerings that will allow partners to deliver the true value proposition of all their services, wrapped around security and compliance.
