Last week, the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) launched the newest Microsoft competency for partners: the Intelligent Systems competency. I’m really excited to see the Worldwide Partner Group investing with us in such a valuable program right when intelligent systems and the Internet of Things are top of mind and hold so much opportunity for our partner ecosystem.
MPN is recognized worldwide as one of the premier partner programs, particularly when it comes to differentiating partner skills and expertise. As a customer, an MPN competency helps you identify partners that have specific, demonstrated capabilities to meet your business needs. When you choose a partner with an Intelligent Systems competency, you can be sure they have the expertise needed to help you solve your business problems.
The Windows Embedded team is committed to helping partners take advantage of this opportunity as quickly and seamlessly as possible. The following information should help you get started:
The MPN Partner Membership Center can help you track your progress toward meeting the requirements for any Microsoft competency. See which individuals have passed exams or assessments, what customer evidence you’ve provided, and other pertinent information.
If your organization isn’t quite ready to start attaining the Intelligent Systems competency, the Microsoft Partner Network has a number of alternative engagement opportunities that can fit your business needs:
For device designers and developers, I’d recommend looking at the Microsoft Action Pack Subscription offering. Many Windows Embedded partners have joined this program and enjoy a rich set of Microsoft software licenses for internal use and access to marketing, sales and training materials and support from Microsoft.
Of course, you may also find that another of the Microsoft competencies is the best fit for your organization’s business practice, and I’d encourage you to explore the options in the Microsoft Partner Network.
