New Partner Competency and 2 Advanced specializations

Dear Partners, 

We are launching the SMB CBA competency and two new advanced specializations (business central and power apps) that partners can earn to highlight their capabilities around Microsoft Business Applications. 

  1. Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions competency option. We’ve added a new option—Cloud Business Applications SMB option. This option is intended for partners with Microsoft Dynamics 365 solutions who serve small and midsize business (SMB) customers. With this competency, partners can demonstrate their technical competency in serving SMB customers and unlock go-to-market offers and programs to help them expand and grow their business. Business Central IUR are included as a benefit of the new competency (25 seats Gold, 15 seats Silver)
  2. Small and Midsize Business Management advanced specialization. The new Small and Midsize Business Management advanced specialization helps partners demonstrate their experience within Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central. Before partners can earn this advanced specialization, they need to first attain either a gold Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions competency or a gold Cloud Business Applications competency. The partners must demonstrate their skillset implementing Dynamics 365 Business Central, ability to deploy Business Central solutions, active user growth and having a Consulting Services offering with Business Central as the primary product published on Microsoft AppSource.
  3. Low Code Application Development advanced specialization. The Low Code Application Development advanced specialization allows partners to validate their experience in helping customers adopt custom and flexible line-of-business low code solutions to streamline their businesses. Partner organizations’ capabilities will be verified through customer deployments and Microsoft certifications, ensuring skilled partners deliver high quality implementations.
