The Azure.com partner tab is a tool to help you find technology partners who build ready-made solutions on Microsoft Azure, and to find service partners who help customers design, build, and manage Azure solutions that are customized for your businesses. It pulls partner profiles from Pinpoint.
It can take 24 hours to 10 business days depending on a partner’s MPN membership status and Pinpoint profile status.
The Azure Marketplace is an online store for certified, open source, and community software applications, developer services, and data—pre-configured for Azure. The listings on the partner tab are provided as a reference tool for you to search and find partners who build ready-made solutions on Azure, or who provide consulting services to design, build, and manage Azure solutions.
The Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) is a broad voluntary partner program 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 percent of its IT solutions and services or derive 75percent or more of their total revenues through the external monetization of their IP solution(s) to unaffiliated third parties (i.e., parties that are not affiliates).
The MPN is a broad voluntary partner program that promotes partners’ solutions and services and also provides technical and marketing training, support, and specialized networking opportunities. The Azure.com partner tab is a reference tool for customers to find partners that specialize in Azure solutions and consulting services. The Azure.com partner listings are a subset of MPN partners and pulled from Pinpoint.
Pinpoint is a global Microsoft online directory that helps business customers find and connect with Microsoft partners.
Pinpoint supports the MPN by helping developers and technology service providers promote software applications and professional services to the market. It also helps customers find partner solutions. For more details on the Microsoft Partner Network, see the MPN FAQ page.
Cloud Platform competency is for partners who specialize in delivering infrastructure and SaaS solutions on Azure. To learn more about the requirements and to enroll visit the Cloud Platform competency page on MPN.
When you enroll in the Microsoft Partner Network —and opt to be included in Microsoft directories during enrollment—it may take up to three business days for your information to migrate to Pinpoint.
After three business days, you can log in to the Partner Center to check the status of your company overview and to make any necessary changes. On average, new information usually takes four to five business days to appear on the Pinpoint website, but may take up to 15 business days. (Note: the time to publish may vary for different countries. Learn more.)
If your information doesn’t appear within this time, it could be for one of the following reasons: You have not submitted your company overview for approval; your company overview does not meet Pinpoint Profile Guidelines; you did not associate your Microsoft account (formerly Windows Live ID) to your MPN membership; or you did not opt to appear in Microsoft directories when you were enrolling in the MPN. Learn how to resolve these and other issues that can hold up publishing.

Technology partners build ready-made solutions on Azure for you to use in your business. These partners are typically Independent Software (ISVs) or Software as a Service (SaaS) providers. Service partners help you design, build, and manage Azure solutions that are customized for your business. These partners are typically System Integration (SI) providers.
The Azure Marketplace currently offers virtual machine images, virtual machine extensions, APIs, applications, machine learning services, and data services.
