ISV Community Event
Welcome to listen the fifth virtual community event for software companies (originally held on 29th of September 2021) to hear about collaboration models and tools for the software service business (SaaS). In this session we´ll discuss about the latest trends in developing world, how you can partner with Microsoft and what are the best practices in selling with Microsoft.
In these community events we'll review Microsoft's different levels of collaboration with software houses and services to increase and speed up your customer acquisition. SaaS applications are at the heart of the organization's software strategy, and previously self-hosted software is primarily replaced by new SaaS services. Traditional production and distribution is already in a minority in new or substitution procurement. In 2020 ,74% of business customers globally prefer the SaaS model when acquiring business applications. In 2013, the corresponding figure was 41%, so the trend is clear. Cloud platforms have contributed to this trend. Finnish ISV companies have been and will be the pioneers of this trend. Now is an excellent opportunity to hear from the world 's leading and most experienced professionals how to take advantage of this trend. To this breakthrough, we offer tools and services to partners to ensure and grow future business. In this session we go a bit deeper to technologies and tools that will help you in this journey.
