Partners who meet the comprehensive requirements to earn a specialization receive a customer-facing label they can display on their business profile in the Microsoft solution provider finder, gain access to specific Microsoft go-to-market programs, are prioritized in customer searches to drive new business, and can generate a certified letter from Microsoft that verifies the specialization that they have earned.
An SAP on Azure Specialization assures potential customers that a partner meets the highest standards for service delivery and support and increases partner visibility through prioritized ranking in searches and referrals via solution provider.
For these reasons, this opportunity is available only to partners who meet additional stringent requirements.
