Microsoft has a very successful partner ecosystem branded as Microsoft Partner Network (MPN). Microsoft Partners serve as a vital touch point to end customers across the globe and our overall engagement with Partners accounts up to 96% of Microsoft’s revenue, annually.

SMS&P and Dynamics GBS - India Delivery is the end-to-end custodian of the Partner Audience Strategy within the CSS and collaborates immensely internally as ‘Co Delivery’ to deliver a differentiated experience to our partners across their sales cycle. It is a unique amalgamation of 3 different businesses - each one representing a specific ‘capability’ – Global Partner Services addresses the ‘breadth’ support & advisory services across the sales & deployment lifecycle, Dynamics Support addresses the ‘depth’ / break-fix support and the newest business of Cloud Partner Support addresses a very unique opportunity for ‘depth’ support for Cloud Partner Ecosystem. As a business, we work closely with the regional SMS&P and Dynamics Organization field teams to drive channel capacity, capability and commitment – in simple terms, basically building a healthy partner ecosystem that is able to compete successfully, increase the deal velocity, drive better yield (revenue) for Microsoft and help deploy quality solutions for customers.

The SMS&P and Dynamics Organization team is a key delivery arm of the MPN; It provides technical services to help Microsoft partners get enabled (“ready”), to sell, develop and deploy solutions through a pool of technical solution consultants spread across the globe.
