What’s new for Microsoft partners: July 2023 edition


One of the key strengths of our partner ecosystem comes from our ability to be agile and innovative in navigating our changing world. As new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) reshape customers’ expectations, Microsoft is continuing to update our partner offerings in alignment with their needs and your business goals. In today’s blog, you’ll find information on some of our most significant program updates and resource launches from the last few months, providing you with access to new growth opportunities:




  • The new Microsoft AI Cloud Partner Program: At Microsoft Inspire, our annual partner event, we announced the next generation of our partner program, the Microsoft AI Cloud Partner program. Designed to empower partners with the integrated capabilities of Microsoft AI and the Microsoft Cloud, this program brings together everything across the entire partner lifecycle, including onboarding, skilling, go-to-market, incentives, and co-selling. Learn more about the new program in Chief Partner Officer Nicole Dezen’s blog, including new partner offerings and benefits for all partners.


  • The new Microsoft Partner Community (MPC): We have moved the MPC under the Microsoft Tech Community (MTC) to offer a more cohesive and intuitive user experience. With this migration, we’ve launched new forums and updated navigation so you can quickly find the most relevant information. Explore the new Partner Community here.


  • Partner Center Technical Corner: June 2023 edition: In this blog on the latest updates to Partner Center, we covered new security alerts to help protect against Microsoft Azure fraud and how Action Center can help partners stay up to date on important communications.
