Reasons as to why TechEd is cool for Partners A discussion guide for PAMs and PTAs Target discussion audience: TDM’s making the decision on who goes to TechEd

Cool 1: Connecting with Microsoft Product and Technical groups. Why is this cool? Knowing technical people at MS makes a BIG difference on projects. Knowing people at MS also increases exposure to roadmap and opps.

Cool 2: Update on the Technology, futures and opportunities. Why is this cool? Like the planets, our product groups align every couple of years. 2010 is one of those years*. Win7, System Centre Service Desk, Office Client 14, SharePoint 14, Visual Studio 2010, .NET 4, Azure and SQL Server 2008 R2 all have high impact to our partners and they need to plan now. * 2008 was another one of those years with the Wave launch

Cool 3: Socialising with peers, insider group and user groups (and customers) (and other geeks).  Why is this cool? Partners rarely work in isolation. Forming partnerships and knowing pains other people have gone through can save a tonne of cost later on. TechEd is a proven hunting ground for customer opportunities – put some commercial antenna’s on your techies and see what they bring home.

Cool 4: Gadgets, freebies, parties Why is this cool? Keeping techies happy keeps them productive and loyal. Techies love getting out once and a while – and even better when they are cool parties, geeky events, gadgets and freebies ...This year an HP Notebook will be offered to all early bird enrolments. This could also translate to Capex savings by gaining a new notebook for demo’s or to be shared in the teams. More info in the notebook offer here: http://www.msteched.com/australia/Public/windows-7-experience.aspx

Cool 5: Accelerate gaining a competency.  Why is this cool? Billable resources going to courses as well as taking time off for exams is a cost to the top line. TechEd offers the opportunity to complete training and do an exam in one place.

Cool 6: Access to TechEd materialto share with others in the practice.  Why is this cool? Access to Webcast and documents relating to the presentations enables a low cost way to deliver internal training. This also provides a mechanism for discovering Microsoft Redmond and local contacts.

Get your partners to join us at TechEd 2009 to share in the coolness!
