About Customer Immersion Experiences Microsoft’s Customer Immersion Experience (CIE) is a tool to help potential customers understand their potential as a Microsoft cloud-powered operation. This proven sales and marketing experience program delivers the opportunity for customers to have hands-on, real-world scenarios play out for them on the Microsoft platform. Guided by a trained facilitator, attendees discuss their business practices, processes, and pain points while exploring the technology they find interesting. Breaking down communication barriers and helping to drive internal customer consensus, CIE facilitators create a truly unique dynamic that builds trust and unlocks new opportunities for customers.
