CED - Cloud Enablement Desk

Copper Contributor

Hi all,

 

My company has been a Microsoft partner through our EMEA entity for a number of years. Recently, I have joined our alliances team in NAMER to grow our Microsoft Partnership. We are currently enrolled in the Solutions Partner track.

 

When looking ways to grow our partnership last year, I stumbled across a program 'Cloud Enablement Desk' where partners that were not yet aligned to a MSFT PDM were able to work with a CED specialist to become PDM aligned in their specific region. More on that program here.

 

It seems this program may no longer be offered as the links to register for this on the URL above are no longer valid and I am unable to find any additional resources in Partner Center.

 

Looking for some guidance on where I should start to grow our relationship with MSFT as we look to become PDM aligned.

 

Thanks,

Andrew

@AsherNierman would you happen to know anything about this or know a place where these partners could find more information around it? Not sure this is your area, but I thought I would give it shot. :)

Hi @A_Nalesnik

CED has evolved into a new program called Partner Sales Acceleration Services (PSAS). There may be some requirements, however, you can complete this nomination form and someone from the PSAS team should respond with more information.

Alternatively, Advanced Support for Partners (ASfP) is another program that provides a lot of benefits to Partners looking to grow their Cloud businesses and to have a stronger relationship with Microsoft. It is a paid Partner offering. One of the benefits is a Partner Success Account Manager (PSAM) who can provide a lot of value in developing growth plans, coordinate consultations for you on cloud projects, and is a program we suggest all managed Partners also have given reactive support benefits and other ways we enhance Partner's Microsoft Cloud Partner Program posture and accelerate cloud growth. You can learn more about ASfP on this site and if you complete the form, someone from my team will reach out to discuss further.
