Reasons for Gold Certification for Microsoft Partners?

April 7, 2006

Gold Certified Partners represent the highest level of competence and expertise with Microsoft technologies, and have the closest working relationship with Microsoft. At this level they  have access to the resources and support they need to stand out in the marketplace, including a Technical Services Coordinator, access to the Partner Knowledge Base, priority listing in Microsoft Directories, and other top-level benefits. More detail can be found here; http://www.microsoft.com/uk/partner/programme/gold/default.aspx?page=overview

As you can see from the page listed here; http://www.microsoft.com/uk/partner/programme/gold/default.aspx?page=requirements partners only have to have competence in one area to gain Gold certification. That’s not to say it is not an achievement to attain this level of certification and it does take a financial and resource commitment too. It is also necessary to appreciate that the one area might be 'Informtion Worker' for example that comprises of 36 products in 7 product groups.

Hope this helps
