New Partner "Acclerated" Offers means more opportunity
Microsoft has had an Accelerated Partners program for BPOS for a while. This recently revised program was released early and had some good support from the US Partner team (producing Migration and administration instructor led classes) and other Microsoft subsidiaries, but in and of itself is insufficient to really get the ball rolling to acheive the goals Microsoft has set for seats.
With with "All In" inititiative, different teams within Microsoft are being funded to adde resources to develop and implement programs to help accelerate partner's that are working to move customers to Microsoft Online. I would say that the partner programs overall all is quickly gaining momentum and yield significant results for Micorosft by the end of this FY.
For example, check out this article on the Cloud Chamions club at http://rcpmag.com/articles/2010/09/16/microsoft-to-double-bpos-margins-for-top-u.s.-partners.aspx . You can find additional details at https://partner.microsoft.com/US/40053541
Expect to see other programs of like these coming from Microsoft in the near future.
