Microsoft provides the Platforms which enable Digital Transformation and using these Platforms, Partners can deliver compelling Solutions to their Customers. In order to survive and thrive in this new World of Digital Transformation, Legacy Microsoft Partners would need to evolve fast. IAMCP will enable these Partners to learn new Practices so that they can thrive in this Brave New World.
Also there are many New Age Partners who have very recently aligned with Microsoft. These are Born In Cloud (BIC) Partners, Digital Service Providers, ISVs among others. IAMCP would help these Partners navigate the Microsoft Eco System which by any account is very complex and huge.
Another Priority area for IAMCP would be to grow the newly launched Community – Women In Technology (WIT). The aim of WIT would be to be the largest Community of Women in Technology in India. This initiative is lead by Nazmeen Ansari.
