Changes Coming to the Microsoft Partner Program...by 2011

Interesting stuff bouncing around this week about changes Microsoft is planning on making to the Partner Program. Apparently, the program is going to be less about technology and more about business planning, less generic and more specific in its certifications, and less Microsoft-focused and more customer-centric. Decipher this chart from the company at your own risk.

For instance, apparently generic Gold Certified Partner status will give way to something closer to Gold Certified Partner status in a particular area of technology of business expertise. We like what we hear so far, and Microsoft promises that the transition will be painless. In fact, it has even named the new plans Evolution, not Revolution. Stay tuned.
