WPC 2014 beckons as Microsoft NZ partners descend on Washington D.C.

15 Jul 14

Mere blocks away from the Presidential elite in Washington D.C., Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference is now officially a Kiwi affair.

With 40 Microsoft partners descending on the American capital from the shores of New Zealand, WPC 2014 will have around 75 Kiwi representatives attending the flagship partner event.

Reporting live from D.C., Techday will provide on the ground action and reaction to the latest releases and announcements through out the week - providing the Kiwi market with a first-hand account of what partners can expect for the remainder of 2014 and beyond.

Global Microsoft partner winners Provoke Solutions and NV Interactive head an impressive field of Kiwi partners, which includes Ingram Micro, Express Data, Exeed, Synnex, Dimension Data to name but a few.

In reducing the number of conference tracks to five, Microsoft aims to make WPC 2014 a simplified experience - focused around the key market trends of:

* Leadership, Sales & Marketing

* Mobility & Devices

* Cloud

* Enterprise Social

* Big Data

With over 350 sessions scheduled for the four-day duration, the stage is set for New Zealand partners to connect on a global level - leveraging the stellar reputation from which the Kiwi ICT market is held in.

Check back to Techday.com all week for breaking news, interviews and reviews of what promises to be a jam-packed week of WPC action.
