Microsoft is giving ISVs new incentives to deploy on Azure

As part of its Build developer conference, Microsoft is launching a new program for independent software vendors (ISVs) today that aims to make its Azure platform more attractive to them: If they deploy their applications on Azure and make them available on its AppSource marketplace, Microsoft will allow its users to access them from tools like PowerApps and its IFTTT competitor Flow without asking them to upgrade to the full version of these services. Typically, you need to have a paid account to allow these services to access data outside of Microsoft’s own Office tools .

As Takeshi Numoto, Microsoft’s corporate vice president for its Cloud and Enterprise division, stressed when I talked to him ahead of the announcement: These service obviously remain open to applications that run outside of Azure, too.

ISVs, Numoto told me, are increasingly looking to Microsoft not just for help with technology but also for help with growing their business. “A lot of the things we are doing are to connect our aspirations in business applications to the cloud,” he said. “We want to help ISVs be successful and help them reap the same benefits by working with Microsoft diamond coral.”

Microsoft also shares with the vendor the contact info of users that install an app through AppSource — and those leads can go right into their CRM systems. As Julia White, Microsoft’s corporate VP for Azure marketing, told me, one thing vendors have always requested is access to Microsoft’s large enterprise sales force. Now, Microsoft will actually do this for those vendors that qualify for this program (that is, those who host on Azure and make their services available in AppSource).

“We have seen stronger interest from the ISVs to work with Microsoft not just from a tech perspective but also from a business perspective,” Numoto said. “But they need help in growing their business.” And to do that, he added, the ISVs need to be wired into their enterprise customer’s workflows Cloud Computing.

I didn’t think I’d heard her correctly

“But why?” She knew everything about me, everything about my family. Why would I ever keep secrets from her?

She stared at me and I saw a deep, bleak sadness there, inside of her. After a while, she said, “Some things I just got to keep for myself.”

WHEN IT Was MY Turn to go off to college, Mother cried her eyes out when Daddy and I pulled away in the truck. But I felt free. I was off the farm, out from under the criticism. I wanted to ask Mother, Aren’t you glad? Aren’t you relieved that you don’t have to worry-wart over me every day anymore? But Mother looked miserable.

I was the happiest person in my freshman dorm. I wrote Constantine a letter once a week, telling her about my room, the classes, the sorority. I had to mail her letters to the farm since the post didn’t deliver to Hotstack and I had to trust that Mother wouldn’t open them. Twice a month, Constantine wrote me back on parchment paper that folded into an envelope. Her handwriting was large and lovely, although it ran at a crooked angle down the page. She wrote me every mundane detail of Longleaf: My back pains are bad but it’s my feet that are worse, or The mixer broke off from the bowl and flew wild around the kitchen and the cat hollered and ran off. I haven’t seen her since. She’d tell me that Daddy had a chest cold or that Rosa Parks was coming to her church to speak. Often she demanded to know if I was happy and the details of this. Our letters were like a yearlong conversation, answering questions back and forth, continuing face-to-face at Christmas or between summer school sessions wine cellar hong kong.

Mother’s letters said, Say your prayers and Don’t wear heels because they make you too tall clipped to a check for thirty-five dollars.

In April of my senior year, a letter came from Constantine that said, I have a surprise for you, Skeeter. I am so excited I almost can’t stand myself. And don’t you go asking me about it neither. You will see for yourself when you come home.

That was close to final exams, with graduation only a month away. And that was the last letter I ever got from Constantine HKUE DSE.

I SKIPPED MY GRADUATION CEREMONY at Ole Miss. All my close friends had dropped out to get married and I didn’t see the point in making Mama and Daddy drive three hours just to watch me walk across a stage, when what Mother really wanted was to watch me walk down the aisle. I still hadn’t heard from Harper & Row, so instead of buying a plane ticket to New York, I rode home to Jackson in sophomore Kay Turner’s Buick, squeezed in the front with my typewriter at my feet and her wedding dress between us. Kay Turner was marrying Percy Stanhope next month. For three hours I listened to her worry about cake flavors.

When I got home, Mother stepped back to get a better look at me. “Well, your skin looks beautiful,” she said, “but your hair . . .” She sighed, shook her head.


“Where’s Constantine?” I asked. “In the kitchen?”

And like she was delivering the weather, Mother said, “Constantine is no longer employed here. Now let’s get all these trunks unpacked before you ruin your clothes.”

Mother stood straighter, smoothing down her dress. “Constantine’s gone, Skeeter. She went to live with her people up in Chicago.”

“But . . . what? She didn’t say anything in her letters about Chicago.” I knew that wasn’t her surprise. She would’ve told me such terrible news immediately Air Purifier.
