Flexibility is key when it comes to any business; things will change and your business will grow and move with the times. This means that you are going to want to make sure that your software and the tools that you use for the everyday running of your business are able to move with you.
Recognising just how flexible the Cloud can be, Microsoft have set up their Cloud Solution Provider Programme (CSP). The idea of this Programme is that it allows partners of Microsoft to directly manage the entire Microsoft Cloud lifecycle for their customers.
Partners are able to provide their customers with efficient and effective management of their subscriptions, as well as combining a variety of aspects of their package, offering them as one monthly or annual subscription package.
There is also a choice between Direct and Indirect CSP. Direct is a process that requires a much more robust infrastructure to manage and ensure that it is offered in the right way, whereas the Indirect CSP is easier to manage and allows for indirect partners to be included within the process which help to provide key tools and resources to manage customer relationships.
Ultimately, the idea of CSP is to ensure that more customers can take advantage of the power of the Cloud and ensure that their business works the best that it can, no matter where they are based.
