Microsoft announced Services Ready, a program that provides participating Microsoft Gold Certified Partners with access to pre-tested, repeatable offerings and best practices developed by Microsoft Services during early consulting engagements with Microsoft customers. Offerings include pre-sales tools and technical and operational guidance that will help partners accelerate time to market, increase operational efficiencies and improve the quality of their delivery to customers. Services Ready provides partners with field-tested engagement tools, templates, guidelines and best practices. “Currently all Gold Certified Partners are eligible to participate in Services Ready. At this point, it is really targeted to our upper mid-market and enterprise partners. We will continue assessing the program for partners that service other customer segments, and one of the big challenges over the next year will be scaling this to a new set of partners,” said Wayne Prentiss.
