Chat with Martin Saunders, Claranet CTO.
Reporting 500k points on vmware covering their pan european vcloud platform, we report about 20k pts.
See a split of 90 percent traditional hosting (physical, colo, vcloud , managed) with 10 percent new world hosting (aws).
Referred to himself as the aws anti Christ vs Sam Bashtons desire to move it all to aws!
Will gradually decommission Colo space as contacts end.
They aren't an aws premier consulting partner. This isn't because they can't hit the required revenue targets ( they are doing this with ease) , it's just staff training and certification that stopping them for meeting the requirement.
Similar concerns to us about the future of Vmware and their relevance.
Magic quadrant appeance does bring through business opportunities but about 50 percent of them are not a good fit for them... Some opportunities are just too big!
They use nutanix, it was not as turn key or easy as they were led to believe. They advised us to be mindful of upgrades, they did one and it

When we think about the anatomy of an Office 365 deal, we can break it down into several major buckets.
First-year revenue that partners can see is represented by the four squares: licensing revenue from the sale, along with planning, onboarding, and enabling revenue. After the first year, these revenue opportunities have already been taken advantage of.
Please note that for the sake of simplicity, all figures are in U.S. dollars, but the numbers translate into any currency worldwide. Also note that these numbers are trending upward and are based on Forrester research.
For a lot of Microsoft partners, this is where the engagement ends, especially for those that are only working with on-premises projects. These partners want to know, how do Office 365 partners continue to make money?
So, with an Office 365 opportunity, partners can now grow an annuity business. This is represented by the three circles here:
Managed services and support – This can be a variety of different activities, including new user setup and training, and help desk support. Partners on average can charge between $50-150 per user every year.
Add-on projects and solutions – This is where partners can really shine by supporting a customer’s expansion, offering customizations, and supporting the customer’s future IT strategy. For example, we’ve seen partners build a SharePoint application for HR. This can really enhance the total opportunity for Office 365. The revenue per user for these services varies a lot, but at a minimum partners generate $40 per user, per year and many times it is much, much more than that.
Additionally, annual renewals are another ongoing, revenue opportunity.
The vast majority of these revenue streams are recurring in nature. Partners can quickly develop an annuity stream through their Office 365 customers that is large and predictable.
Let’s look at an example that will help put this in perspective.
Develop worldwide selling and active usage partner capacity to deliver on the depth of the E5 offering
Empowering Office 365 generalist partners on new capabilities
2. Building a larger partner footprint by allowing specialized partners to assist generalist partners
Before rolling out Office 365, take a step back and think about why you acquired it in the first place. Was it led by specific technical requirements, as part of the IT upgrade cycle, or did you discover specific needs within the business? Driving adoption is about understanding the business challenges that you will address with solutions based out of Office 365. It is about ensuring that people across your organization understand the benefits and embrace the solutions you provide. At Microsoft, we want you to make the most of your investment in Office 365 and planning is core to achieving this. The sole purpose of this Adoption Guide is to assist you in the adoption process and it has been separated into four key steps:
Define a Vision and Identify Business Scenarios
Prioritize Solutions and Create an Adoption Plan
Commit Resources and Execute an Adoption Plan
Measure, Share Success & Iterate

In the past, FastTrack was mostly associated with the Deployment stage of Office 365. Built on that success, we are expanding FastTrack to become the customer-success service for Office 365.
The Office 365 FastTrack service benefit spans three phases of the customer’s Office 365 journey: envision, onboard, and drive value.
By envision, we mean helping your customer to learn more about Office 365, as well as planning for a successful deployment of Office 365.
Onboarding is when partners, along with the Microsoft FastTrack Center, get their customers up and running as quickly as possible to start realizing the value of Office 365.
And finally, driving value is about increasing customer usage and engagement with Office 365. The more customers use Office 365, the more they experience the value they’ve been sold and partners have a great opportunity to sell additional solutions and services.
Let’s talk a little more about FastTrack…
The first phase is Envision. Here we are helping the customer to define and refine their vision. We look at business scenarios and work to determine where to focus and then create a successful rollout plan.
Coinciding with that, Microsoft provides resources and tools such as, an Adoption Guide and project templates, technical labs, and customer success scenarios.
In Onboard, partners lead the on-site engagement and enable users with remote assistance from Microsoft engineers.
To support the partner during the onboarding process, Microsoft provides an onboarding status, remote onboarding and migration services, as well as assessment and remediation tools.
The Drive Value phase is all about boosting user engagement and managing change. The partner focuses on generating additional value by driving Office 365 usage. Partners can leverage the FY16 Adoption offer and help customer IT staff to prepare for and manage this change.
In addition to the FY16 Adoption offer (which we will talk more about later in the session), Microsoft also offers workload guidance, adoption planning services, and a recommendation engine, among other things.
Let’s look at a real life example…
In other Drumbeat Start sessions, you’ve heard about the Office 365 roadmap. The roadmap was created because we received feedback from partners that they want more transparency on where Microsoft is taking Office 365.
FastTrack is also included in this roadmap. There are a lot of exciting things happening with FastTrack. I’d especially like to highlight the first bullet. Soon, we will be offering data migration for both SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.
