ATLANTA -- Cbeyond Inc. (Nasdaq:CBEY), the technology ally for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), today announced it has entered into a marketing alliance with Microsoft to offer U.S.-based Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Value-Added Resellers (VARs) the option to deploy their SMB customers' solutions in Cbeyond's cloud. Through the alliance, Cbeyond will incentivize MSPs and VARs to move their customers to the cloud and showcase the most advanced, enterprise-class cloud computing capabilities of Microsoft's Cloud OS technologies, including Windows Server, Hyper-V and System Center.

In support of the program, Cbeyond is providing MSP and VAR customers with TotalCloud(R) Partner Edition based on the Microsoft Cloud OS technologies.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
