    ISV Benefits
    The Microsoft Certified Partner Program has been redesigned to address the needs ISVs have for robust products, market recognition, and business expertise. Benefits include:

    Early access to products and strategic information.
    Leading-edge insight directly from Microsoft gives ISVs the opportunity to stay ahead of the game in the fast-changing world of technology. The MSDN® Universal CD subscription has proven to be a widely used and effective tool for ISVs. Recognizing the need for more development tools, Microsoft offers Certified Partners five MSDN Universal Licenses per site. Each MSDN Universal CD contains all the .NET Enterprise Servers and Visual Studio® .NET development tools. All products on the MSDN Universal CD can be used in development and testing environments. Several strategic .NET server licenses can be used for development and testing and for internal use. In addition, the MSDN Universal CD contains all the beta versions of Microsoft products.

    Marketing tools to enhance your visibility and credibility.

    Volumes of training and support information and resources, updated monthly, will help you respond quickly to your customers needs.

    ISV Requirements
    What does it take to join?
    Because ISVs invest resources in their products, Microsoft invests equally in ISVs through the Certified Partner program. Microsoft has waived the requirement to have two Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCPs) on staff for ISV enrollment, and redefined the ISV requirements to reflect the ISV business model. ISVs are eligible to join the Certified Partner program based solely on the merits of their software products.

    Microsoft Certified Partner status is the foundation of the Microsoft Certified Partner program. For ISVs to qualify, they must have a software product that successfully completes one of the following software tests:
