ISV Partner Day

16 April 2019 | The Madejski Stadium, Reading, RG2 0FL



Learn. Innovate. Grow.

We had a great time at our Grey Matter ISV Partner Day 2019 on 16 April. It was a day packed full of carefully curated content, presented by an A-list line-up of speakers from our esteemed partners, specialist in-house teams and Microsoft. Designed specifically for independent software vendors (ISVs), application builders and software developers, the had three tracks addressing three specific areas: business, development and platform.

Slide decks and recordings from each of the sessions are available to download and view in the agenda below.


What was covered in each track?

Our platform track coached those taking their first forays into Azure wanting to gain a better understanding of the platform and its surrounding services such as data and containers.

Our developer track was curated to give developers an understanding of the tools and resources that Microsoft can offer, and how they can be utilised to achieve great things.

Our business track showcased the support networks that are available through the Microsoft Partner Network and from us Grey Matter, to help you reach new customers and drive your business forwards.
