We want to be the best partner for our partners, says Satya Nadella at Inspire 2021
In the Microsoft Inspire 2021, CEO Satya Nadella spoke about the strong growth across its Azure, Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365 and security businesses-with more than 95% of the company’s commercial revenue continuing to be “influenced” directly or indirectly by partners. Microsoft now reports having more than 400,000 partners in its network. Nadella says a big thank you to the technology giant’s, calling them “the core to who we are and what we do as a company. He further said that Microsoft partners are helping customers navigate the rapid change by reimagining how people sample products, processing billions of federal Paycheck Protection Program loans, and helping businesses adjust their supply chains.
During his keynote address of the technology and cloud computing provider’s partner conference, Nadella said, “When it comes to our partners, we believe in two truths. First, we’re only successful if you are successful. That means creating new opportunities for you across every sector and every country. And second, we collectively are successful when the world around us is successful…Over the course of this pandemic, you’ve done the hard work to help the world use digital technology and get through one of the most challenging moments in modern history.”
Nadella announced a reduction in fees for Microsoft’s commercial marketplace – AppSource for business solutions and Azure Marketplace for IT solutions – to 3 percent from an “industry-standard” 20 percent for every transactable application published.
Nadella told partners, “This is our investment in your success, so you can invest more in your business and in your people. We want to be the best partner for our partners. What we are witnessing is a generational shift - not just in technology platforms, but in digital adoption curves. We have built the most trusted and comprehensive cloud to translate this structural change into opportunity for you as partners and maximize the value for our mutual customers.”
Software and digital technologies represent the most malleable and infinite resource to drive growth for the world, Nadella said, and Microsoft partners are helping customers navigate the rapid change by reimagining how people sample products, processing billions of federal Paycheck Protection Program loans, helping businesses adjust their supply chains - even flying drones on Mars.
Nadella said, “You have met every challenge and help others do the same. This partner ecosystem - all 400,000 of you - are projected to generate more than 10 million new jobs over the next four years alone. And for every $1 Microsoft generates, our partner ecosystem generates nearly $10 more. And, most importantly, the work we do together uplift the communities where we live and work.”
