ISV Partner Day

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




Learn. Innovate. Grow.

Welcome to our Grey Matter ISV Partner Day 2019. This April we are hosting 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 day has been split into three tracks addressing three specific areas: business, development and platform.


What will be covered in each track?

Our platform track is for those that are taking their first forays into Azure and want to gain a better understanding of the platform and its surrounding services such as data and containers.

Our developer track has been 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. There will be real-life use cases and insightful demos.

Through our business track you get a thorough understanding of the support networks that are available to you, through the Microsoft Partner Network and from us Grey Matter. The aim is to help you reach new customers and drive your business forwards.
