The Enterprise Cloud Application Logo Certification Program is designed to help partners drive business growth through recognition that their applications work with Microsoft’s server and cloud platforms.  In order to deliver exceptional value to our partners, we are improving and expanding our individual product logo programs.

We are excited to announce the launch of our new Hyper-V and System Center Logo partner certification programs and discuss an upcoming revitalization of the SQL Server Logo certification program.

Building on the success of the Microsoft Azure Certified for Virtual Machines program and the Windows Server Logo certification program that helped connect thousands of partners with customers worldwide by delivering their certified applications globally, we are offering logos with additional distinction.  Partners can now highlight their business interest with product specific certifications.

Partners can differentiate applications with a certified badge of quality and reach global exposure through premium listings in the new and improved Microsoft Pinpoint. The marketplace draws millions of visitors and allows partners to grow their business through lead generation.

We are laser focused in delivering exceptional value to application providers, ISVs, IT pros and customers through the logo certification program.  The program is designed to:

  • Deliver a great partner experience. Our new Partner Center portal makes it even easier for partners to register, certify and generate market visibility of their applications.
  • Certify quality and reliability. Partners can now run validation tests and certify their applications ensuring quality, compatibility, reliability and security.
  • Reach global exposure. With the new and improved Pinpoint, partners can now reach a global market, generating leads to grow their business.

Of course, the new certification options also qualifies application provider partners toward the application test requirements of the Microsoft Partner Network Competency program.

With the launch of these additional logo certification programs, partners will now be able to certify their applications for Hyper-V Virtual Machines and System Center Management Packs. In the coming months, partners will be able to certify their applications for SQL Server. Stay tuned.

With recent application promotion opportunities like Azure Certified for Virtual Machines, Windows Server logo, Hyper-V logo, System Center logo and the upcoming SQL Server logo, it is a great time to be a partner with Microsoft.
