Microsoft expands its Online hosted services trials

March 16, 2009

"Microsoft is making trial versions of its growing family of Microsoft-hosted services available to users outside of the United States.Microsoft is allowing customers of all sizes to sign up for trials of its Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS), its Communications Online enterprise instant-messaging service and its BPOS Deskless Worker Suite

The 18 newly added markets for Microsoft’s Online services are: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom
Capossela said Microsoft has signed up more than 1,500 resellers, at the rate of about 100 per week, to sell these Microsoft-hosted services. A number of Microsoft partners have balked at Microsoft’s entrance to the hosted-services market, claiming that Microsoft is competing with its allies."
