Effective August 1, 2015, partners will be able to earn incentives for driving consumption of Microsoft Azure services. In order to earn, a partner will need to be attached by the customer as Digital Partner of Record (DPOR) on their Azure subscription. To be eligible, partners will also need to have a Silver or Gold Cloud Platform Competency.
When a partner delivers project services, managed services, or applications built around Azure they will receive credit for the resulting consumption on the customer-owned Azure subscription, provided they have been attached by the customer as DPOR. The partner will earn incentives based on the actual consumption driven.
As a Microsoft Silver or Gold Cloud Platform competency partner, you are automatically eligible for the program. Learn more about Cloud Platform Competency.
To get started, all you need do is ask your customers to add you as the DPOR on any of their subscriptions that you manage. For instructions on how to add a DPOR to a subscription, see Digital Partner of Record (DPOR) User Step-by-Step Video.
