  • Bold PredictionsFirst and foremost, customer demand for Online is growing and that’s what going to generate a lot of new customer opportunities for you. Hosted Services is one of the fastest growing sector of the industry, with 32% YoY growth according to IDC. 25 percent of new business software is expected to be delivered as a service by 2011, resulting in a $20Bmarket for cloud-based software services.But what’s the revenue opportunity for partners? The research firm IPED conducted a survey of 300 partners currently providing value-add services around software delivered as a service for systems management, messaging and collaboration, sales management. The goal of the survey was to evaluate A) partner revenue for the 300 partners as well as B) evolution of net income for the best in class partners Input from best in class partners is about exceptional margin increase through higher rate service attach but also shorter sales and delivery cycles. The surveys shows that on average, for every dollar spent on licenses, partners make more than $6 in service attach revenueTransition: how do we capture this opportunity with Microsoft during these economic times?Gartner Dataquest Insight, 3 August 2007 http://www.consultingmag.com/articles/190/1/Whos-Afraid-of-SaaS/Whos-Afraid-of-SaaS.html/print/190http://www.crn.com/software/197000500http://crn.com/software/198001001?queryText=ballmer+and+saas+and+planhttp://www.gartner.com/it/page.jsp?id=496886IDC Worldwide Software on Demand 2007-2011, forecast update and 2006 Vendor shares (IDC #207491, July 2007)Infosys Consulting forecast based on product groups interviews and industry trends
  • There are over 72 million SMB customer accounts, which equates to over 370 million PCs which is an incredible opportunity for partners. SMB is a huge market opportunityBy their nature, SMBs are often risk takers and early adopters but the cloud also helps address their pain points.If they can access the latest technology, smooth their cash flow and simplify their IT with just one subscription-based solution, you’ve got their attention. And many SMBs are already in the cloud with hosted Email although they may not know this as the cloud! SMBs want advanced tools and they prefer the “rent” versus “own” model. They don’t want to run a large back-end to get access to the tools and cash is king: they’d much rather pay over time.And those that have already made the cloud transition are ahead in their financial performance. Over 40% of SMBs stated that access to new or advanced functionality is the main driver to move to the cloud. And of those that did move, their revenues far out-performed customers who haven’t yet made the transition – or don’t even know what Cloud is. This is really compelling customer evidence and shows a large market opportunity for us.The SMB market is a great place to add a ton of value through offering managed services
  • So, what are the benefits of BPOS to SMBs?From our research, we know that SMBs have some common pain points:SecurityCosts/Cash FlowThey want IT that “just works”, and it needs to be agile. The ability to respond to current market dynamics means success or failure. They need to be ready when business opportunities happen.First there’s security. Many SMBs don’t have an internal IT department and can’t afford to be down for even a day. Knowing that the Microsoft brand stands behind the service can be a critical factor in their decision making. Microsoft’s Service Level Agreement provides superior uptime guarantees without any initial ten minute grace period. And Microsoft also offers local customer service, which is particularly important to SMBs.Next, let’s talk about cash flow. SMBs are looking to do more with less and credit it tight. When buying IT, customers usually consider the future and buy beyond their current needs. But with BPOS they don’t have to – they buy what they need when they need it. This smoothing out of their cash flow is a huge benefit.Next let’s talk about “simplified IT”. Getting the latest business tools quickly and easily without having to retrain their staff is a win/win for SMBs. Your customers are likely to know and love Outlook already, and BPOS was designed to integrate seamlessly with the Office suite. Finally, there’s “agility”. SMB employees can’t be chained to their desks. They need to do business from the road, home, airport or client’s office. Having the ability to work from anywhere with all the rich functionality they thought they couldn’t afford really resonates with them. Believe it or not, managing growth is one of the largest risks of a business – having IT that grows when you grow is a strategic advantage. And for those at the top of our segment who have internal IT support, they can use those expensive resources in more strategic ways than just administration and deployment to add value to their business.
  • SteveB’s video: http://www.microsoft.com:80/presspass/presskits/cloud/videogallery.aspx?contentID=ondemand_cloud10&WT.z_convert=ShareWindows Azure offers a flexible, familiar environment designed to create applications and services for the cloud.

  • One area that we are very conscious of is the importance of security and availability. We want to ensure that you feel confident that we are protecting your data and the service is highly available. Our service runs on a set of datacenters that are managed by a centralized organization within MS that are making major investments in datacenter spaces and capabilities. We deploy our service on the latest hardware and network equipments in a N+1 architecture to enable failover capabilities as well as saving your data in a separate geo-redundant location. We are regularly tested by third party CyberTrust to ensure our infrastructure is secure against attacks. We follow ITIL/MOF in our operational processes and we are in the process of getting our SAS-70 audit to ensure we have strictest level of control. Above all, we will provide 24x7 IT Pro support and our service availability is backed by a 99.9% uptime SLA with financial penalties if we fail to meet the SLA. Physical security is just the beginning. Since we’re providing an internet based service, we are protecting ourcustomer’s data in a variety of ways with multiple layers of protection. Microsoft is actually providing 9 layers of logical security for our customers and their service and data. <click> With Filtering Routers, Firewalls, Intrusion detection, dual factor authentication within center operations, application authentication, Virus Scanning. We also have a datacenter within a datacenter with separate networks and you authenticate to the data on a separate network that is not internet facing.--------------------------------------------Filtering Routers: these are implemented to protect against any traffic we do not see as well constructed. One of the great benefits of providing a focused service like BPOS is we actually set up the routers to protect against any form of malform data. We block at an aggregate at the edge. Firewalls are set up as deny all. Behind the firewalls we have an Intrusion Detection System. We have a very sophisticated correlation engine for any intrusion alert that we’re tracking 24 hours a day. Below the IDS, we have a level System Level Security. When you look, the service operations organization actually has broad based, dual factor authentication. This means each individual within a support and service operations team have either some sort of secure ID card or a RSH secure ID token that is coupled with their role. Each individual must have a user ID and password and must apply a pin with their secure ID token. Based on the role they have, we grant access per individuals to the service.  Application Authentication: when you get below the System Level Security, the customers actually have application level authentication. We have a very sophisticated mechanism by which we provide access to data. The structure of the service provides users access to only those capabilities they are designed to have. In the reseller model where a partner is actually providing the service to the customer, they have a level of application authentication that sits over top of that which the customers have. So we’re able to provide a very rich set of security protocols for our customers, as it relates to authentication to the different services.Microsoft, as most people know, has a good history as relates to security and trustworthy computing. Our services are actually designed to make sure that we apply those security methods not only to the software, but we also treat that software as a service. So when we do our threat walling and follow the Windows initiative, we’re thinking about our applications as if they are delivered through the Internet. We apply a significant level of counter measures, such as buffer overflows and SQL injection, we make sure that the applications we’re running are sandboxed so you can’t activate elevated levels of security or access a higher level of authentication when you’re actually doing work within our application. Virus Scanning is provided for multiple set of capabilities. We actually virus scan at all over our server levels, we have in place intrusion detection at the host and we’re scanning our content via Microsoft ForeFront.Then we have Separate Data Networks. When you look inside the data center, So what when we do our threat walling and follow the Windows initiative. These are implemented in a form that breaks it apart. For example, the data bases are on a separate sub net then from the actual content server or something that is an internet facing device.When you look, even though we are an internet facing service, very few devices have direct access to the internet. All of the servers are on some form of non-routable subnet space. Finally you are authenticated into the data. The data itself is never stored on the physical servers, we run separate data networks and the data is stored on dedicated storage devices. So when you look at the content, the content is actually being sent from dedicated storage devices, which allows us to provide significant levels of backup as well. Once we layered our data center practices in place, we’re actually deploying for our Business Productivity Online Suite in a number of locations. Because service is still in its infancy, we’ve only deployed in two locations in North America at this time. Ultimately, we will be replicating this model in other Microsoft data centers across the world.
  • Partner revenue streams start at the resell or host level. At that level they will conduct a transaction and capture the margins. However, as they move up in the revenue path along the different engagement types, they will be able to capture higher margins and turn the transaction into a more stable and more profitable recurrent model with managed services centered on support, desktop management, and optimization.The opportunity for new services areMigration and integration. No deal is green field, and Online doesn’t mean software will be in place magically. Migration projects will be key to guarantee a great end-customer on-boarding experience and we look for partners to deliver that services. We will providing migration tools and training on the tools. Also integration needs are key, especially with co-existence between on-prem and online. Partner can start acting as the experts for S+S and build expertise on our tools such as the AD synchronization tools and add consulting services around themCustomization and consultingIntranet andSharepointcustomization, business process consulting, workflow and document management. One of the biggest growth areas here is in SharePoint consulting and business process consulting services. SharePoint is one of the hottest business applications in the market today, and Partners see the availability of the online version as the best way of introducing small and mid-sized business customers to this space. Ability to sell services as recurring services. Example , SesQTech“Microsoft Online Services will dramatically shorten SusQtech’s sales cycle by taking the hardware, networking, and licensing questions off the table, and allowing us to focus on our revenue-generating services such as training, customization, and ongoing support. Now – we can drive the customer straight into a sale by offering smaller, proof of concept solutions that don’t require an up-front investment.”Example: Ascentium“Online Services will allow us to have a predictable infrastructure to work off of. Customers have all different environments, and you can walk into many unknowns to deploy solutions on these different environments. This adds project risks that can derail even a well planned and executed implementation. There are now ‘givens’ with the Online Services platform, which brings standardization and predictability to the deployment of our solutions. We can now give more accurate estimates, hit the estimate with confidence, and do more with less for our customers. In our eyes, it’s about taking risks off the table.” Managed Services Managed services, helpdesk services support: $30-100 per user per month. You can help increase recurring revenues by offering managed services such as desktop management, tier 1 end user support, and ongoing consultation. And up-sell both to new Microsoft Online Services offerings and your associated value-add services for possibly even more revenue growth. We have proof that as customer buy softwaremonthly, then they are more likely to buy IT services monthly. Example: Courtesy Computers
  • Presenter ScriptSpecifically, I want to look at making that choice for business productivity workloads. So let’s now drill down on “Online” services. Online services is a set of enterprise class software delivered as subscription services hosted by Microsoft and sold through partners. Our goal is to create a service option for every one of our business software products. The initial set of services we are offering focus on the business productivity capabilities that includes Exchange Online, Office SharePoint Online, Office Live Meeting, Office Communications Online, Exchange Hosted Services and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online. Exchange Hosted Services are attached services that include filtering, archiving, encryption and continuity. We plan to add many more Online services to this portfolio in the coming months.The Business Productivity Online Suite, shown here, includes Exchange Online, Office SharePoint Online, Office Communications Online, and Office Live Meeting. Office Communications Online is currently available as part of the dedicated offering and a multi-tenant offering of the service plan to be added in early 2009.
  • Beyond just hosting our software, we have made key investments to create a set of unique values for online services. The key pillars are streamlined communication, simplified management and business class security and reliability. The text shown are the key value prop in each pillar category. By providing the latest business productivity capabilities delivered from a single service platform, end users can truly enjoy an integrated experience. End user will be able to access these services over the web, through their laptop/desktop or mobile devices. They can also securely access these services over the internet without VPN. End user will be able to have presence awareness of their colleagues and partners and be able to collaborate seamlessly between emails, documents and over conferencing and instant messaging. From the IT administration perspective, our service will be managed from a single administration portal. Administrators will have a single place to go to view operational statistics, provision new users and track any support issues. All services will be backed by a 99.9% SLA and included in each service is a premium disaster recovery service that will allow fast switch over to a geographic separated datacenter in case of primary datacenter failure. We also perform regular scheduled independent audit to ensure our service is SAS 70 compliant and highly secured.

  • 12/6 is the old message. We did too well a job on it. Partners need to be thinking about migration, consulting, and managed services. POR Fees will not be compelling enough for a partner to invest. Need to focus on the other higher margin, services they can offer on top of BPOS. This is where they need to invest. Need 248 partners to activate (WW number). When a partner has sold 8 or more deals of 25 seats or greater triggers the scorecard. 2,632 customer adds are needed worldwide.
  • Microsoft Online Services provides Partners the opportunity to build long-term trusted relationships with their customers and be their trusted advisors for Online services. Partners will be able to see benefits in three core areas: expanded reach, revenue growth, and increased velocity. We conducted a survey of more than 700 partners and talked to 40 VARs/SIs on a 1-1 basis. We also met with more than 250 partners of various types during our Partner Advisory CouncilsPartners think 70% of the opportunity is incrementalOne the most interesting findings is that partners are telling that an estimated 70 percent of Microsoft Online Services sales will be to new customers that Partners would not otherwise have had access to. And sales to existing customers are expected to increase annually as well. This means new upgrades such as older version of Exchange, or (like Eddie Bauer) competitive upgrades like Notes, that they would not have been able without an Online delivery. It also means new scenarios such as selling the deskless SKU in specific verticals like retail, manufacturing or public sector Expansion to SMB - the ability to reach new customers who previously could not afford enterprise-class messaging and collaboration solutions Recurring revenues- Partner-added Managed Services that are built around Microsoft Online Services are expected to yield up to 50 percent recurring revenues. IncreaseCapacityPartner believe Online will reduce sales cycles but also delivery cycles as well as save on the cost of managing customer environments by taking advantage of the infrastructure we provide and the Online Administration Console. For instance I talked ABC Systemes in France and they are eager to use BPOS to enhance their SMB offering – now they feel they can scale to multiple customers with their existing sales force and delivery team.
