Arrow can help you with the “skills” part of the New Microsoft Partner Program

Microsoft is changing their Partner Program.

Starting October 2022, it will be called the Microsoft Cloud Partner Program. The classification of Silver and Gold changes to Solution Partner and Specialist/Expert. There will be six solution partner specializations.


The six solution partner specializations are:

  • Solutions partner for Infrastructure (Azure) (Covering legacy Competencies: Cloud Platform and Datacenter)
  • Solutions partner for Data & AI (Azure) (Covering legacy Competencies: App Integration, Data Analytics, Data Platform)
  • Solutions partner for Digital & App Innovation (Azure) (Covering legacy Competencies: Application Development, App Integration, DevOps)
  • Solutions partner for Modern Work (M365) (Covering legacy Competencies: Cloud Productivity, Collaboration and Content, Communications, Messaging, Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions, Windows and Devices)
  • Solutions partner for Security (Covering legacy Competencies: Enterprise Mobility Management, Security)
  • Solutions partner for Business Applications (Covering legacy Competencies: Cloud Business Applications, Enterprise Resource Planning, Project Portfolio Management)

A new points system is introduced.

Your investment in growth and your success will be objectively measured in the new program using the Partner Capability Score.

The "Partner Capability Score" evaluates the number of your certifications (skilling), new customers (performance) and successful implementations (customer service).

Points are awarded for this
The goal is at least 70 points – max. 100 points.

Arrow can help you on the “skilling side” – we have developed clear training paths and have a full schedule in place as guaranteed to run to allow you to plan ahead.
