During Microsoft Inspire in July 2017 the Microsoft leadership team announced their new commercial direction. By words of Ron Huddleston, Corporate Vice President, the One Commercial Partner (OCP) organization was announced. One Commercial Partner is putting partners first in solutions build around Microsoft technology with a 4,5 billion dollar opportunity amongst 64,000 Microsoft cloud partners worldwide.
The new Microsoft commercial thought is building solutions with partners, go-to-market with those solutions and co-sell the solutions to customers.
As a partner, to be able to do so you must have a solution with your own Intellectual Property or your own unique services around Microsoft technology. A solution Microsoft is willing to enclose in their OCP Catalogue, the overview and presentation of partner solutions the Microsoft commercial team will promote and sell to their customers, with partners. Do you have an unique and outstanding solution or service build around Microsoft technology? Then you are good to go. But if you have doubts, or want to design and build a brand new OCP ready solution which puts you head and shoulders above the competition, you might want some guidance and help. Specially for those Microsoft Partners we at Quexcel have designed our Microsoft OCP Catalogue Ready Framework.
