What is the Microsoft Partner Network?

The Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) is a broad voluntary partner programme designed to help qualified technology companies build, sell, provide, service and support solutions based on Microsoft technologies. To qualify for the MPN, a technology company must sell or provide more than 75 per cent of its IT solutions and services or derive 75 per cent or more of their total revenues through the external monetisation of their IP solution(s) to unaffiliated third parties (i.e. parties that are not affiliates). For more details on the Microsoft Partner Network, visit the MPN page.
