Centrality and Microsoft: A Partnership Built on Security

Centrality and Microsoft: A Partnership Built on Security

What are the Microsoft Solutions partner designations 

In October 2022, Microsoft retired the competency partner program (Gold & Silver) and replaced this with Microsoft Cloud Partner Program.   

With the Cloud Partner Program, there are six Solutions partner designations that recognise partners skills, capability and ability to ensure customer success. Each Solution partner designation aligns to a specific solution Microsoft area: 

  • Solutions partner for Business Applications 
  • Solutions partner for Data and AI (Azure) 
  • Solutions partner for Digital and App Innovation (Azure)
  • Solutions partner for Infrastructure (Azure)
  • Solutions partner for Security
  • Solutions partner for Modern Work

These are represented with badges similar to these awarded to Centrality;
