Microsoft Enterprises Prefer TAMs Not CSAMs

Microsoft Enterprises: TAM Better Than CSAM

As Microsoft continues to swap its Technical Account Managers (TAM) for lower-level Customer Service Account Managers (CSAM), US Cloud is going the opposite direction by continuing to invest in TAMs – many of which had long tenures at Microsoft.
