Q: I’m an ISV partner with an existing silver or gold competency, what action do I need to take?
A: After September 30, 2022, no new competencies can be attained. Partners with active legacy competencies after September 30, 2022, will retain the associated benefits. On your next anniversary date, you will have the option to pay the same fee and retain your legacy benefits. If you meet the requirements for Solutions Partner, you will have the option to pay the fee and move to the new Solutions Partner benefits instead. As an ISV partner, you can also consider the ISV Success program which is the pathway for ISV partners within the Microsoft Cloud Partner Program, in addition to Solutions Partner designations.
