Achieve more with Microsoft & Dicker Data

Discover how you can achieve more 

Over the month of November 2019 Dicker Data’s Microsoft team ran a series of dedicated partner enablement days across Australia.


Dicker Data currently offers our Microsoft partners a wealth of resources from presales support, go-to-market services and funding, enablement programs, training, migration services plus much more.

Our discover tour was designed exclusively to help our partners understand how they can leverage our teams capabilities and ensure they are getting the most value from our partnership.


Kicking off in Brisbane, the tour moved through Sydney, Perth, Melbourne and finished in Adelaide, with our team collectively interacting with over 100 of our Microsoft partners.


Partnering with Microsoft speakers, the team were able to go into detail about not only the value of moving to a cloud model with CSP but the specific support systems across both Microsoft and Dicker Data to help get your businesses plan into action.


Based on the growing interest indicated at Discover, Dicker Data has since facilitated 3 Microsoft Get Traction, Partner Elevate workshops which helped our partners get to the basics and plan for their future growth.

First look at Window’s Virtual Desktop

“Windows Virtual Desktop (or WVD) is a desktop and app virtualisation service running on top of Microsoft Azure Cloud”. Here are a few things you might not know about WVD:

  • WVD gives you the only multi-user Windows 10 experience, optimised for Office 365 ProPlus
  • Virtualise both desktops and apps
  • Deploy single user Windows 10 desktops
  • WVD supports Windows 7 with free extended security updates
  • It’s integrated with security and identity of Microsoft 365

Microsoft’s Power Platform

Today, most app platforms only see some business data, however the essential part of these high-productivity application platforms is that they natively integrate with existing business data and provide a high-level overview of all your data. Build end-to-end business solutions with one high productivity platform that spans Office 365, Dynamics 365 and standalone applications.
