Microsoft Inspire 2022

Did you miss Microsoft Inspire? If so, Pax8 has you covered. We gathered a team of our in-house Microsoft experts to summarize all of the key takeaways for you.

Did you know that 38% of hybrid workers say that the greatest challenge of their workplace is not knowing how they should join a meeting — virtually, in-office, or in person? Another fun takeaway we found is that Microsoft partners could earn up to $36 of revenue per seat by stacking Microsoft 365 security solutions.

If you’d like to know more, our recaps have all of the most salient details waiting for you.
