Biz Apps Partner Podcast: Joe Corigliano on Microsoft FY25 Biz Apps Partner Summit July 24-25

Welcome to the “Biz Apps Partner Podcast,” a weekly video series designed to decentralize intelligence about how partners can scale their Microsoft practice by having short, to the point discussions with Microsoft leaders in product, engineering, marketing, partner management, programs, and more. 

In episode 1, John Siefert, CEO, Dynamics Communities and Community Summit North America, and Joe Corigliano, Executive Vice President, Ciellos, put context around the podcast series, which runs in conjunction with the Biz Apps Partner Summit, and define the ways that these connections and intelligence can help scale Microsoft business applications practices.

Register for the Biz Apps Partner Summit, running July 24-25 in Bellevue, Washington, where attendees will make the right connections, gain insights into Microsoft’s FY 2025 priorities, and learn how to scale their Microsoft Business Applications practice at the 24-hour event.


01:36 — What can attendees expect from this event? Firstly, partners need opportunities to connect with Microsoft executives, a demand that clearly exists and will be met at the Biz Apps Partner Summit. Last year, at Community Summit North America 2023, the sold-out Partner Preconference took place for the first time, which was a half-day program to connect partners with Microsoft executives and decentralize intelligence.

04:39 — The Biz Apps Partner Summit is designed to give partners a “kick-off” into Microsoft’s FY 2025 priorities. More specifically, Microsoft leaders who support the partner ecosystem will be talking with partners at the event, guiding them on how to engage with the ecosystem and detailing key strategies that partners need today.

06:13 — Essentially, the Biz Apps Partner Summit is a “24-hour immersion” into key partner strategies, Microsoft priorities, and networking. The event begins at 12 PM PST on July 24, in Bellevue Washington, with a networking luncheon. Speakers of the event include:

09:43 — Sessions at the event will be diverse in their content, form, and length. The Biz Apps Partner Podcast will feature many of the event speakers, highlighting the overall focus of the event, specific sessions, and learning objectives.

11:40 — The Early Bird All-Access Pass is available for $799 until May 31st. Beginning June 1st, the ticket price will increase to $999. Not to mention, all meals are included with your registration.

12:27 — When sharing tips for the event, Joe encourages partners to prioritize making connections with Microsoft leaders during networking events and social hours. While the sessions are curated and supported by clearly defined learning objectives, Joe “encourages you to get to know all of the Microsoft leaders that are there, build relationships if you don’t have them. Come prepared with questions.” Secondly, he encourages attendees to attend Community Summit North America 2024, happening October 13-17 in San Antonio, Texas, to be able to execute the new learnings from the event.

13:40 — Finally, thank you to BDO Digital for underwriting the Biz Apps Partner Summit, as well as our event sponsors Red Maple, Experlogix, Paystand, Martus, and DynamicWeb.
