The Windows Azure Platform … what is it and what can it do for you. That’s what we want you to find out. You can read stuff on websites or watch some video’s but it’s always good to meet people and interactively discuss what you want to know.
So … If you’re wondering why there’s so much fuzz about Azure but you don’t really know what it is and how you could benefit from it, then consider putting this in your agenda:
We are organizing an informal evening combining drinks with info at a location near you
- 16/01: Brussels (Microsoft Offices – Da Vincilaan 3, Zaventem)
- 17/01: Ghent (De Zebrastraat – Zebrastraat 32/001, Ghent)
- 18/01: Antwerp (Grand Café Leroy – Kasteelpleinstraat 46, Antwerp)
Her’s how we planned the evening:
18.30h – 19.00h:
Welcome with food and drinks
19h – 19.45h:
What the Windows Azure platform is and what’s in it for you?
Expect a non-technical business approach explaining the platform with the help of scenario’s and real life examples. (applications for devices and mobile, social media marketing campaigns, departmental apps on premises and/or in the cloud, Extend SharePoint to the public cloud, highly-scalable and worldwide websites or applications)
19.45h – 20h:
How to get started with the Azure platform
Learn where to start and how to get help from Microsoft. We’ll also include some pricing examples.

Every year, we ask our partners and customers for feedback. On many occasions, partners have raised communication and the overload of it.
Introducing…. www.netgenoeg.info or www.justeassez.info, your one-stop shop where you – as a partner – can indicate what information you want and where to find it. Because let’s face it, it’s not always that clear who to follow on Twitter, or to become member of what LinkedIn group. Let alone finding the right email in the overload in your inbox.
Our goal is to send fewer mails, but more tuned to your needs. You will also see different colors in the mails. There are 3 flavors:
- the green ones: information on MPN or generic partner events
- the blue ones: anything that goes out from a sub community of partners
- the pink(ish) ones: all relevant information on training
So, go the site, indicate what your areas of interests are and you can immediately subscribe to the relevant newsletters or join the LinkedIn groups.
Let us know what you think about this and you can send us your feedback: via email, Twitter, LinkedIn and yes, even by regular post.
