Microsoft WPC 2014

Microsoft’s annual event aimed at their partner community, Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC), is timed at the beginning of the Microsoft financial year.  This means that it is the perfect opportunity for Microsoft to lay out their key messaging for the year ahead and get their partners on-board.

Microsoft have been talking about being “all in” with the Cloud for a number of years now.  However the rhetoric is now landing with serious organisational change and commitment.

With Satya Nadella providing a new hand on the wheel and clear statements that “Nothing is off the table in how we think about shifting our culture” (see http://www.zdnet.com/microsoft-ceo-nadella-we-will-reinvent-productivity-7000031455/) this years WPC in Washington DC will be especially interesting to see what does and does not get mentioned.
