Microsoft Launches Education Program Aimed at Bringing SMBs to the Cloud

Cloud SureStep is an educational program launched this week to teach SMBs about how cloud computing works and how it can benefit them. Cloud SureStep is the one-stop resource built within the Microsoft MPN website to help their partners establish, grow and thrive in the cloud. SureStep provides resources, including whitepapers, product information, access to relevant training, as well as ways to connect with communities, including the Office 365 partner Yammer group and the Office 365 Technical Blog. Educational products in the program on the Microsoft Partner Network currently relate to Office 365 and Microsoft Intune, with Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online materials soon be added.
By releasing this program, which seems to combine elements of a public awareness campaign with detailed business tool optimization instructions, Microsoft is betting it can increase cloud adoption through education. Read the full details here on Microsoft’s blog.
