“The only constant is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be.” — Isaac Asimov

Following on Mr. Asimov’s sentiments, Microsoft is changing, updating and improving its resources for ISVs.  The Innovate On program will be retired on Friday October 30th.  Instead, we encourage you to explore the following resources: 

Greenlight helps you make your applications compatible with the latest Microsoft technologies.  Greenlight currently supports Windows and Windows Server with SQL and Exchange and Office coming soon and other technologies added regularly.  Be ahead of your competition, win business, and keep your customers satisfied.  Visit the Greenlight site to find the tools and technical resources you need to make your application compatible.

Channel 9 Learning Center (we blogged about this on Monday)

The ISV Portal on the Microsoft Partner Network where you can learn more about the ISV Software Solutions Competency within the Microsoft Partner Program.  It is designed to help you target and differentiate your software offerings. Learn how you can minimize risk and speed your time to market through ISV-specific benefits, like code samples, internal-use software licenses, and access to technical and business support.

Thanks to all who engaged through Innovate On and participated in developing the 25,000 projects that were supported through the program.  We hope you will find continued value in Microsoft’s other programs to build your businesses going forward.

Best wishes for continued success,

The Global Partner Team
