If I said to you that Connection could offer you your monthly Office 365 subscription, along with 24×7 end-user support, and you would never have to call Microsoft support again—would that be enough to make you a believer in our Microsoft Office 365 CSP offerings?
What if I also told you that we will have managed service offerings around our licensing assessments. And in our roadmap within the next year, add business continuity Azure offerings, (amongst others to include training for your end users), would that be enough? If so, then let Connection be your gateway to the cloud!
For those of you who aren’t aware, CSP is a Microsoft Cloud Solutions Provider Program. You’ll be able to self-serve and manage subscriptions via your Connection marketplace, and allow us to manage your account from the time you purchase through the future phases of your cloud journey. Connection provides the support for both the end user and billing. We will monitor your account to ensure you are getting the best out of your investment. If you’re new to the cloud and require any assistance, Connection can help with that too as we have our very own Microsoft Cloud Services team through our Technical Services Group.
Today, our offerings are focused on monthly Office 365 subscriptions. However, coming March or April 2018, our Azure Business Continuity Solution will become available in CSP—as well as our Security, Cloud Stack, and Microsoft Landscape Optimization Assessments—as either a monthly or annual subscription. This will help you keep track of investments, and plan for new ones in the future.
It’s going to be an exciting year! Stay tuned as Microsoft adds features and enhancements to their products and we add to our CSP portfolio. These programs are a great way to get the support you need all in one place, and Connection looks forward to assisting with you with any and ALL of your Microsoft needs. If you’re not sure which option is the right fit for your organization, let our Microsoft Center of Excellence licensing specialists guide you alongside your Account Manager.
