You Spoke. And Microsoft Listened.

The IAMCP leadership is delighted to share the news that Microsoft has reversed its decision on the cessation of IUR (Internal Use Rights) benefits, a valuable aspect of gold and silver competencies and the Microsoft Action Pack (MAP).

Announced earlier this month, the controversial changes evoked a strong reaction across the ecosystem and, in the days leading up to the Inspire conference, had partners across the globe scrambling to understand what the changes would mean for their businesses – and how they should move forward.

In a July 12 release to partners, Gavriella Schuster, Corporate Vice President, One Commercial Partner, stated:

“Your partnership and trust matters to us. Given your feedback, we have made the decision to roll back all planned changes related to internal use rights and competency timelines that were announced earlier this month. This means you will experience no material changes this coming fiscal year, and you will not be subject to reduced IUR licenses or increased costs related to those licenses next July as previously announced.”

As a partner advocate, the IAMCP sought partner feedback to the previously proposed changes, with the objective of consolidating partner comments for presentation to Microsoft during meetings at the Inspire conference, commencing on Sunday, July 14.

“Microsoft has always invested heavily in its partners and has always welcomed feedback. This decision on Microsoft’s part demonstrates that when the partner network provides input, Microsoft doesn’t just listen. It acts.” – Sergio Baptista, IAMCP International President

The IAMCP thanks all members for their input and looks forward to seeing members at Inspire 2019!
