Thank You for Listening!

On behalf of its members, and partners globally, the IAMCP respectfully thanks Microsoft for hearing our voices and concerns regarding the recently proposed changes to IUR (Internal Use Rights) benefits, a valuable aspect of gold and silver competencies and the Microsoft Action Pack (MAP).
Microsoft’s announcement of its decision not to eliminate the program has been greatly welcomed by partners worldwide, further underscoring their perception of the value proposition of IUR.
It also demonstrates Microsoft’s commitment to its partners, willingness to listen, and openness to change in support of the ecosystem.
“Microsoft has always welcomed feedback. This decision demonstrates that when the partner network provides input, Microsoft doesn’t just listen. It acts. Thank you, Microsoft!”
