Partner Transformation Updates

Communication and awareness of all upcoming changes for Partners.


Product licenses/internal use licenses benefits Update

Dear Partners

The Microsoft partner network offers a portfolio of resources that can help every partner differentiate its business and solution for success and growth. Partners with a competency or subscription are eligible for technical, marketing, and selling opportunities and benefits.

The internal use rights benefit lets a partner’s technical, marketing, and sales teams get hands-on with and learn about the latest Microsoft products and technologies.

Partners with competencies will receive Microsoft 365 E3 product licenses in their core package of benefits, and partners with the Cloud Productivity competency, Security competency, and Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions competency (O365 services option) will receive incremental Microsoft 365 licenses.

MPN admins and Global admins will see these product licenses in Partner Center as part of the benefits included with their competency. Information about reviewing and activating these benefits is at Azure and cloud products benefits area in Partner Center.

Find your benefits - Partner Center | Microsoft Docs

These licenses replace the standalone licenses in the competency core package of benefits for Office 365, Enterprise Mobility + Security, Microsoft Intune, and Windows 10, and these standalone licenses will be removed from the core package in April 2021.

Hi Abhinav,


So as a Cloud Productivity competency Partner, we will not have access to the Phone System anymore? That is a very important IUR for a Cloud Productivity Partner.
