Our partner ecosystem is essential to delivering transformative solutions for customers. Each year, we hear countless success stories from customers around the world and across industries who depend on our partners’ innovation, dedication, and service. But in the past year — and in the past few months especially — we’ve seen firsthand exactly what our partner community offers in a dramatically changing world: unlimited potential. The potential to adapt, to connect, to innovate, and to achieve more.

The Microsoft Partner Network serves as a catalyst to equipping businesses and customers with the technology and tools needed to succeed in an evolving digital economy.

Now in its 17th year, this year’s Microsoft Inspire will be the first time we come together for a digital-only event, a shift that underscores the times we’re living in, as well as our partners’ resilience. It’s an example of how, even amid widespread disruption, our ecosystem has continued to help customers adapt to a dramatically changing environment.

And when you combine the power of our offerings with the innovation of our partners, that impact takes on even greater significance:


From Africa, to Antarctica, to the Americas, Asia, and everywhere in between, our partner ecosystem is driving digital transformation around the world.

Microsoft Inspire is an opportunity for those partners to connect, to reflect with us on the past year, and to look ahead at how we can collectively grow both in the near future and long term. In the past week alone, we’ve made some exciting announcements with CitrixLand O’Lakes and Finastra as we head into the conference.

Here’s a glimpse at some additional announcements we are sharing today:

We continue to build innovative ways for partners to serve customers and manage their business amid changing work environments.

Power Platform and Dynamics 365 are supporting the path back to the workplace by delivering critical digital infrastructure needs.

Azure continues to help companies accelerate their journey to and in the cloud.

Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams deliver new solutions for a secure and collaborative workplace.

We continue to make strong progress on our goal to be carbon negative by 2030 by bringing customers and partners along on the journey.

We’re excited about the possibilities ahead as we continue to empower partners with the training, skills, support, value and security needed to drive new opportunities and positive outcomes for customers.
