Microsoft APC 2015 is not just about products and solutions offerings, it is so much more. It provides a chance for partners to connect to opportunity through real-world examples of how other companies have leveraged Microsoft technologies to drive success for them and their clients.
The examples of customer success with a wide variety of Microsoft products and services will give partners valuable proofs of concept to take to market. These are concrete examples of how Microsoft has helped businesses of all sizes achieve objectives in a number of vertices.
How Australia's leading businesses are building a platform for innovation
Retail spending remains a strength in the Australian economy but retailers must remain focused on finding that competitive edge. Do technology trends like Big Data, beacons and customer experience yield results?
In this session, partners will see examples of how leading retailers are deploying such technologies with partners, discuss details of the projects and learn about the key role partners can play in their success.
Bring the Internet of Things to life
Rhipe vice president of market research, Stephen Parker, has said that in the same way innovative partners were offering Cloud solutions years ago, they must now do the same thing with IoT. Innovation and adaption are key to the evolving mindset partners must embrace to stay competitive. This session will give forward-thinking partners insights on how to tap into the disruptive market of IoT and the incredible opportunities available.
All in the Cloud? Almost…
IDC research has said that by 2020, around 80 per cent of the 2,000 largest companies globally will still have greater than 50 per cent of their IT on premise. Participants in this session will be able to learn from customers and partners about how they deployed hybrid solutions spanning on premise, private and public Cloud. Presenters will cover business continuity, recovery, backup as well as monitoring and automation. These stories will inform partners how to move beyond the Cloud hype and offer true solutions to customers.
The tech behind the modern workplace
As businesses continue to look for ways to make the work environment as effective and productive as possible, allowing employees to work from anywhere using their device of choice has never been more important. In this session, partners will hear from some of Australia’s most responsive businesses on how they are leading workplace change and what they are looking for in a partner to assist them on this journey.
Getting personal with your customers
Customers are the lifeblood of most businesses and many organisations seek to build meaningful and personalised connections with customers. Partners will hear from an Australian organisation on how they are using technology to develop deep insights into customers, improve responsiveness and develop engaging connections.
