IAMCP (International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners) is all set to organize its Quarterly Partner Briefing (QPB) 2021. Given the current circumstances, the event will be held digitally on 3rd and 4th February. While full of growth opportunities, recent times have also proven to be challenging for MSPs all over, and a virtual event in partnership with Microsoft will surely help partners make the most of opportunities. This time around, another important highlight is that Centilytics is going to be one of the event’s sponsors.
For those unaware, let us start by introducing IAMCP first. Established in 1994, IAMCP aims to bring Microsoft partners together and help them broaden their horizons by establishing the right partnerships. The association states that its mission is to “maximize the business potential of members through peer-to-peer interaction, member advocacy, community outreach, growth and education—while enhancing members’ ties to Microsoft.”
Every single organization in the cloud services arena is aware of the importance of the Microsoft Partner Programs. However, becoming a part of the programs and then making the most of it is a task in itself. It is a task that involves looking for the right partnerships, finding the right solutions, and delivering the best services to customers. IAMCP aims to make these tasks easier by providing a platform for Microsoft partners to engage with institutions within and outside the ecosystem.
While IAMCP was initially present in just 4 countries, now the organization’s footprint has increased to 44 countries worldwide. In order to make the enormous organization manageable, the IAMCP is divided into multiple chapters, with new chapters forming every year.
