Microsoft’s Channel Chief, Gavriella Schuster, announced that Microsoft has experienced an increase in new partners as the demand for cloud solutions rise. Schuster announced that Microsoft is adding new partners at a rate of more than 7,500 each month, during her annual “State of the Channel” conference call.

Microsoft also currently serves more than 2 million customers through CSP and the program recently experienced a 31 percent growth in the last 12 months.

[SWC] has been seeing rapid growth in its Microsoft business—across Azure, Microsoft 365 and business applications. And the CSP transaction model has been important to helping drive the growth.
