Cloud Competencies – 1 Stop Resource For Inform and Take Action


Josh Condie – A few days ago, a colleague of mine, Diane Golshan, posted a fantastic blog that made all our lives a little easier in the sometimes cloudy (pun intended) world of the Microsoft Channel.  Partners with active practices around Microsoft Office 365 or Microsoft Azure may attain one of three cloud performance competencies.  All the necessary details to help you get started are now aggregated and catalogued in Diane’s post here:

MPN Cloud Performance Competencies: how to get started

Your success will not only help your business grow, it will unlock additional support, enablement, and incentives with the Microsoft Partner Network.  Furthermore, through June 30, 2015, the Silver competency fee for these cloud performance competencies is waived, and you can enter at the Gold level at a reduced fee.

All 3 Cloud Competencies are featured in her blog post.  Please bookmark that link for current or later use.
