03.28.2014 - Growing with AMD's New Partner Program



View AMD related news.
The AMD Partner Program helps participating channel partners to grow and prosper with AMD’s broad, industry-leading technology portfolio.

 The framework of the program is aspirational by design, encouraging channel partners to grow with AMD. Channel Partners are assigned a track based on their business model (Etailer, Retailer, System Builder, and Distributor) and earn their tier (Select, Provisional Premier, Premier, Elite) based on transparent criteria.  They know exactly how to ascend in the program to gain increased benefits.  Partner reviews and dashboards are key features that help partners track of their progress in the program as they continue reaching for new heights.

 Partner tier determines the level of available benefits. Partner track determines the type of available benefits.  The type of benefits needed to help partners grow differs by business model and APP delivers on that.  For example,

  • System Builders need technical benefits to help support their systems-design process:  product samples, drivers, BIOS updates, and access to technical support

  • Retailers & Etailers need marketing benefits to help support their sales-out efforts:  marketing campaigns, product bundles, web banners, and inclusion in AMD’s ‘Where to Buy’ online shop

 

  • Distributors need technical benefits to help enable their sales teams to resell AMD technology:  product training, sales tools, third party benchmarks, and top reviews and news

 Each tier from Select to Elite is eligible to earn an increasing level of benefits.  Once a partner achieves Elite status they are eligible to receive exclusive benefits according to track - benefits that will help them continue to prosper, including: 

  • Co-Marketing Funding (MAF) - Partners can earn funds to be used to promote the sale of AMD products or systems through the purchase and/or sale of qualifying products. As a matching fund, AMD MAF helps to magnify the power of marketing budgets.

 

  • Advertising on the AMD Catalyst™ Control Center (CCC) Driver Site - Partners promote their AMD-based products and solutions via banner advertisements to end-users on the CCC driver site which is visited by millions of users annually.

 

  • Participation in the AMD Executive Team (AET) Summit - Partners can earn access to the AMD Executive team via the AET Summit and are briefed on AMD’s corporate vision, technology and product strategy, and the key role of AMD’s channel partners. All members have access to the AMD Partner Portal (APP.AMD.com), a secure website that provides resources to help partners grow their AMD business.  Partners will find:  APP documentation, sales tools, marketing assets, product training, Ask the Experts, videos, top reviews and news, and Sales Opportunities.  The new Sales Opportunities feature provides partners essential information on how to build a business reselling solutions based on AMD technology including AMD FirePro™ workstation graphics, tablets, mini PCs, and AIOs. All resources found on the AMD Partner Portal help partners position their AMD-based components and solutions for success.

 Additionally, all partners have access to a broad range of timely Channel Update communications with the latest news, third party product reviews, industry benchmarks, and more—delivered directly to partners’ inbox.  Designed to help partners position and sell AMD technology, Channel Updates are tailored to track and tier.We’re looking forward to the impact that the AMD Partner Program will have on our channel partners’ success!

03.27.2014 - Microsoft expands cloud services for mobile scenarios



View Microsoft-Press related news.

SAN FRANCISCO — March 27 , 20 14 Microsoft Corp. on Thursday announced several new and updated applications and services including Microsoft Office for iPad and free Office Mobile apps for iPhone and Android phones. Microsoft also announced the Enterprise Mobility Suite, a comprehensive set of cloud services to help businesses manage corporate data and services on the devices people use at work and at home. In addition, the company announced the upcoming availability of Microsoft Azure Active Directory Premium and enhancements to Windows Intune.

“Microsoft is focused on delivering the cloud for everyone, on every device. It’s a unique approach that centers on people — enabling the devices you love, work with the services you love, and in a way that works for IT and developers,” said Satya Nadella, chief executive officer for Microsoft.

Office productivity when and where you need it

Starting Thursday, Office 365 subscribers can simply add an iPad as one of their chosen devices included in their subscription benefits, and can create and edit documents with Word for iPad, PowerPoint for iPad and Excel for iPad. These apps are available as free downloads from the App Store, enabling people to read and present documents, spreadsheets and presentations. Office for iPad brings full file fidelity across Office on PC, Mac, tablet and phone, and along with cloud storage from OneDrive or OneDrive for Business your files are up to date, wherever you need them on whatever device you want to use. Office for iPad apps have a familiar look and feel that are unmistakably Office but are built from the ground up for iPad, factoring in the unique nature of touch and functionality native to iPad along with what people most commonly want to do on a tablet. More detail on today’s announcements can be found in the Office blog.

Office 365 is Microsoft’s fastest-growing commercial product ever, with increasing popularity of the subscription service among consumers because of the ability to move between devices, share subscription benefits with household members with an Office 365 Home subscription, and have constant access to important Office documents online. In addition to Office for iPad announced on Thursday, Microsoft also offers other iPad-optimized productivity applications, including OneNote, Dynamics CRM, Dynamics AX, Bing, Lync, Outlook Web Access, OneDrive, OneDrive for Business, Yammer and Skype.

Comprehensive services to help IT embrace b ring y our o wn d evice and the move to software as a service

Customers continue to use more devices and services, and IT needs an integrated and economical way to manage it all. The new Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) provides comprehensive device, identity and access management with data protection from the cloud. EMS includes Windows Intune, Azure Active Directory Premium and Azure Rights Management Services, to give IT the tools they need to help protect corporate assets and enable people to work on the devices they love.

The new Azure Active Directory Premium delivers cloud-based identity and access management with single sign-on to over 1,000 popular software as a service (SaaS) applications, self-service tools for users, and machine-learning-driven security reporting and anomaly detection. With Azure Active Directory Premium customers can reduce their IT costs and more easily manage their users, groups and SaaS application access.

Microsoft also announced additional enhancements to Windows Intune, including support for the Samsung KNOX platform, Remote to My PC capability for Android and iOS devices, and support for the next update to Windows Phone, continuing Microsoft’s commitment to cloud-first mobile device management across all devices.

Availability

Microsoft Office for iPad is available Thursday in 29 languages. The apps require an iPad running iOS 7.0 or later. More information about Microsoft Office for iPad can be found on the Office blog. The new Windows Intune features and Azure Active Directory Premium will be available in April, and the Enterprise Mobility Suite will be available via Microsoft Volume Licensing channels on May 1. More information about these new enterprise mobility solutions is available at Microsoft’s In the Cloud blog.

Founded in 1975, Microsoft (Nasdaq “MSFT”) is the worldwide leader in software, services and solutions that help people and businesses realize their full potential.
