  • 7: Dollars in services revenue that partners generate for every $1 of Microsoft revenue they generate
  • 5.4 billion: Dollars in SharePoint services revenue that Microsoft expects partners to make this year
  • 27: Points of margin that the average Microsoft partner makes by selling collaboration and enterprise search services
  • 20: Points of margin that the average Microsoft partner makes by selling unified communications and other emerging technologies
  • 500: Customers that have already subscribed to Dynamics CRM Online since its April launch
  • 200: Partners that have sold and deployed Dynamics CRM Online
