Clearing up the Gold mess at Microsoft

badarrow Barbara Darrow Profile: badarrow

Still have questions about the Microsoft Gold, Advanced, no Gold competencies? Here’s an explanation of the branding changes that took place on the cusp of this week’s Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference.

To re-iterate: What was to be the new Advanced Competency and plain ol’ Competency levels will now be Gold and Silver competencies. And the Gold and Silver designations will come within a certain area of expertise, or business solution area. So you can be a  Gold partner within content management or business intelligence or whatever. You can also be a Silver partner in other solutions area.

Got it? Get it? Good!
