Mr. Thanh (Bruce) Pham - CEO of Saigon Technology shared, “This is not just a title. For me and the Saigon Technology team, Application Development Gold Partnership of Microsoft also means that Saigon Technology's employees are recognized as Microsoft Certified Experts - with high competencies, expertise and related skills in specific areas. Therefore, Saigon Technology team is proved to be over capable of undertaking and effectively handling software development projects, thereby bringing hundreds of excellent technology products to the world ”.

To promote rapid and equitable capacity development across its network of partners, Microsoft offers three types of membership: Network, Action Packs, and Competency. In which, the Competency package is branched into two other memberships, including Silver and Gold.

Becoming a Microsoft Certified Partner

Becoming a Microsoft Certified Application Development Partner is really not an easy matter. The rigorous competency requirements have demonstrated Microsoft's thoroughness in selecting partners and classifying technology organizations.

First of all, an organization must join the Microsoft Partner Network, after being considered for membership, the organization must meet certain of the following requirements in order to reach the title Gold Partnership of Microsoft:

  1. At least 5 client referrals submitted
  2. Sales and certification required
  3. 120 required partner points earned
  4. Gold capacity fee paid

About three Microsoft membership packages:

Silver and Gold membership

For Microsoft Silver and Gold membership, organizations with a proven track record and that have passed the eligibility tests will be able to receive rewards in the form of discounts for services and the tools that you need to support your business.

In addition, some of the other benefits of being a Gold member are that your organization can also access Microsoft utilities, toolkits, news and updates; and participate in Microsoft's continuing education programs at a discount - or even for free. Best of all, you also get access to Microsoft's dedicated 24-hour support team.

Microsoft Action Pack

At a lower stage Silver & Gold membership is the Microsoft Action Pack. While not as many benefits and benefits as a Silver & Gold Membership, it also comes with a lot of benefits, such as many tools and utilities - more than a regular Partner Network membership by Microsoft.

The Microsoft Action Pack gives you access to developer tools, support, training, and software. Furthermore, this package will allow your team to learn valuable skills that will qualify you for a partnership with Microsoft.

Microsoft Partner Network membership

If you are not already a Microsoft partner, you can begin your journey towards higher professional titles by joining the Microsoft Partner Network. This is an entry-level membership, offering you access to Microsoft's core internal usage rights benefits.

These advantages will save you the most time, money and effort. Plus, by joining this strong community, you will also have additional opportunities to improve your skills and build lasting customer relationships.

The different areas in which you can demonstrate your competencies are:

  1. Cloud infrastructure and facilities
  2. Data collection, management and analysis
  3. Application to do business in the cloud
  4. Managing customer relationships in the cloud
