WPC 2015: New Competencies, Certification Enhancements

Microsoft adds EMS and Windows 10 competencies, streamlines certifications for partners.

Microsoft is launching new competencies for Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) and Windows 10. The EMS competency is the final latest addition to the cloud competencies announced last year at WPC. The Windows and Devices competency will provide partners interested in building customer offers around Windows 10 with a dedicated learning path, additional Windows 10 software for internal use, and access to key resources such as Windows Accelerate.

In addition, the new streamlined application certification platform, part of the Partner Center, is designed to make it easier for partners to certify their applications for competency requirements. This will enable Cloud ISVs and App Builders to qualify for Cloud Competencies (Cloud Platform / Cloud Productivity / Cloud CRM) solely through their certified cloud applications.

Also, to reduce administration time, Microsoft is eliminating the sales assessment requirement and allowing organizations to use the same individuals who have achieved Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) certification to be counted towards meeting technical requirements in multiple competencies.
