Microsoft 365 Contribution towards Competencies (Security, EMM)

Good day,


I created several tickets through PAC > Support last year regarding the contribution of several SKU`s towards competencies.


Products like Azure Active Directory, Azure Information Protection and Intune (as an example) count as SKU`s towards the competency Security, but only so if they are bought seperatly but not as a consolidated SKU like Microsoft 365.


Microsoft is pushing Microsoft 365, but these do not count towards the competency. Would be rather weird if we have to start selling EMS, Azure AD and AIP as single SKU`s so we can achieve the competency. This is the same story for EMM where Microsoft 365 does not count towards the competency, single SKU`s (which are consolidated in M365) do count towards it.


Would be great if we could make some adjustment regarding this so partners can achieve these competencies. A suggestion could be to count Microsoft 365 towards these competencies, but do some checks on usage through Secure Score so we know that the products are implemented.
