Catalyst - eligibility, training and partner activities


From October 1 2023, it is no longer required that partners must obtain a minimum of 3 Catalyst accredited resources to execute the below Catalyst Partner Activities. Partners can execute any FY24 Business Applications Partner Activities as long as they meet the partner eligibility requirements.


Catalyst accreditation remains important for co-sell as Microsoft sellers will gravitate toward partners with Catalyst accreditations, AppSource tagging of Apps and Services, Solutions Partner for Business Applications designation partners, and partners with Specializations.
