Re: Ask Me Anything: GTM Services

We are still in a development phase and haven't published anythign to the Marketplace.  As we plan our messaging and overall marketing strategy are there resources we can access to help guide us in what messaging we can use to describe Microsoft and the partnership in our overall marketing materials?  I haven't seen any guidelines in my search on the Partner site.
