En Pointe Technologies Selected to Speak at 2014 Cloud Partners Conference

Speaker to Address Improving Customer Productivity with Office 365

LOS ANGELES, CA - August 27, 2014 - En Pointe Technologies, one of the largest Microsoft systems integrators and Licensing Solutions Providers (LSPs), today announced it has been selected to present at Cloud Partners 2014, a Channel Partners event, taking place September 8-10 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Other notable conference presentations will be given by analyst firms AMI Partners and The 2112 Group, non-profit trade association CompTIA, and vendor companies including AT&T, Comcast Business, IBM SoftLayer, and Mitel.

Mike Hogan, Microsoft general manager at En Pointe will address the topic of "Making Money and Improving Customer Productivity with Office 365," on Monday, September 8 from 9-9:45am. Hogan will be joined by Rajashree Varma, CEO and founder of Arth Systems.

The Office 365 platform for collaboration, document storage, data security, and messaging offers numerous financial and operational benefits; however, when businesses aren't sure how to position the technology, or need help with implementation or ongoing support, they look to En Pointe for its system integrator capabilities. During this session, Hogan will discuss what an Office remodel could do for customers, and what considerations go into successful customer deployments.

"Office 365 is one of the fastest growing offerings from Microsoft. Whether you're a smaller organization with limited IT resources, or a large enterprise, Office 365 can improve employee productivity, increase collaboration, and ultimately transform a business to ensure that employees can remain productive any time, and anywhere," said Hogan. "During the discussion, we'll touch upon how Office 365 can help improve business collaboration, the cost and operational benefits of the cloud, and what businesses should look for when searching for an IT solutions provider when making the transition to the cloud."

Hogan has over 25 years of Microsoft sales, vendor management, and leadership experience in the information technology sector. As general manager of the Microsoft Practice at En Pointe, he oversees go-to-market strategy, partner alliances, and sales operations. Additionally, Hogan works closely with En Pointe's professional services organization to help drive holistic solutions anchored to the Microsoft ecosystem, with a decided emphasis on cloud adoption, one area where En Pointe has had marked success. En Pointe currently has over 6 million deployed seats of Office 365 across diverse industries, having recently closed one of the largest Office 365 deals in state and local government for Microsoft this year. En Pointe was also a growth leader with Microsoft in its 2014 fiscal year.
