Find Partners with the new Microsoft Partner Competency Program

With the new Microsoft Partner Network Partner Competency program, it's easier than ever to find qualified and trusted Microsoft partners.

Customers looking for qualified Partners can search by area of software or hardware expertise, known as Microsoft competencies. Earned by Microsoft partner companies through the Microsoft Partner Network rigorous partner certification program, these competencies are represented by badges promoted by the partner, and these badges are your assurance that  they have met specific criteria that ensure the quality and reliability of the applications or services they offer.

Just identify your business challenge, and then match it to the most appropriate Microsoft competency. Microsoft recognizes 28 different partner competencies, each of which maps to a specific business customer IT need. For each competency, partners may attain two designations of expertise—Silver or Gold.
