EVENT RECAP: INGRAM MICRO EBC 2019
On April 24th and 25th, Microsoft Canada and Ingram Micro Canada brought 17 of their top Strategic partners (MSPs and ISVs) to the Microsoft Envisioning Center for an exclusive experience. Our mission was to help Partners accelerate customer acquisition and transform their business on the new digital scenario. This 2-day packed EBC included Executive Presentations, interactive tours (i.e. Surface Lab, Azure Collaboration Center, Digital Crime, Cyber Defense, Digital Transformation, Modern Workplace) and unique sessions such as AI for All, Microsoft 365, Partner Profitability and Azure Strategy Overview and Best practices.
Within these two-days, partners were able to connect how their partnership with Ingram Micro could roadmap their expansion into the other workloads of Microsoft from solely Office 365 to Azure, Microsoft 365, Dynamics and the Surface line of business. Utilizing Ingram Micro’s Cloud Marketplace and the exclusive programs for Office 365/Microsoft 365 and Azure, partners can achieve accelerated growth and multiply their investment in Microsoft technology.
