Today’s exec is rudely awakened daily to ever-changing customer expectations. Last year’s huge investments were popular for a few months, but suddenly the “next big thing” is turning attention—and attracting budgets—elsewhere. How do you stay competitive with data and security? How do you ensure your applications scale across cloud and mobile?

Microsoft unveiled a new program, Microsoft App Accelerate, that targets such issues for application creators and ISVs (independent software vendors). Whatever cutting-edge commercial solution your company delivers, the program will provide product and technical resources to help you plan, deploy, launch, and grow your applications.
