With Windows 10 being released, more customers are asking about it and looking to start their proof of concepts so they can evaluate how it can best fit within their organization. This is a great opportunity for you to start engaging with customers to drive project and managed services opportunities.
As a valuable Windows deployment partner, we want to help you with this by offering you the opportunity to learn the technical aspects of Windows 10 from Microsoft experts. Ace and Auldhouse, will each be hosting a three-day training session in Auckland.
Here you will learn about topics such as how to deploy and manage Windows 10, and the security features you can use to help protect a customer’s data, identity, and devices. You will come away with a better understanding of how Windows is becoming more like a service and how new features will be added over time. After this training you should be able to walk into your customer’s organization and help them deploy Windows 10.
