Security, Compliance and Identity
The final investment area cited by Clark is in security, compliance and identity. “Investments in security, compliance and identity become critical to our overall growth,” he said. “We’ll provide you with the building blocks of security, compliance and identity—from training to solution development, all the way through to go-to-market as a foundation of your growth.”
Microsoft will also expand its competencies and add advanced specializations to provide “foundational-level knowledge” of security and compliance offerings,” Clark said.
“We’re expanding our competencies to provide that foundational level knowledge of our security and compliance offerings,” he said. “And then beyond that, we’re providing new advanced specializations for those who are further along in your journey.”
Ultimately, “these skilling initiatives represent our expansion of the channel’s technical acumen,” Clark said. “And at the same time, we stand behind you—badging your verified expertise that keeps you on a path to greater specialization.”
