Microsoft Shares the SharePoint Wealth

SharePoint -- or Microsoft Office SharePoint Server, or even MOSS -- is a hit. It's a moneymaker for Microsoft and a collaborative boon for customers. And while it was already a cash driver for partners, SharePoint just got a bit better for the channel.

Software Assurance subscribers can now take advantage of what Redmond is calling SharePoint Deployment Planning Services, a program that helps them deploy the popular SharePoint enterprise portal. SharePoint Deployment Planning Services is a little like a program that the Office team offers, apparently -- but, most importantly for the channel, it'll be partners who will be taking care of the bulk of the SharePoint assistance for customers.

Some of you know this by now, of course, as a pilot program has been underway for a short while. For those who don't, now is the time to look at becoming part of SDPS, as we have a feeling that it's going to be something customers will want...well, right now, actually.

We'd like to hear your SharePoint success stories from both the partner and customer perspectives. Send them to lpender@rcpmag.com.
