New! AMMP Partner-led

We are excited to launch a new path within the Azure Migration & Modernization Program: AMMP Partner-led which provides an easy way for Azure Expert MSP and Azure Advanced Specialized partners to nominate customers for migrating and modernizing through AMMP.

  • Partners nominate customer engagements directly. Now AE MSP and Advanced Specialized partners can nominate directly and access investments to help accelerate customer migration and modernization engagements in Partner Center.
  • Faster approval via standardized offers. AMMP Partner-led uses pre-determined offer sizes to expedite approval times and enable agility and scale.
  • Self-serve dashboard to nominate and track. Partners can now nominate aligned customers into AMMP through Microsoft Commerce Incentives (MCI). A self-serve dashboard provides partners with the ability to track approval status and get paid upon engagement completion.

Note: MS Field-Led AMMP remains unchanged and is still available for partners to nominate. Please reach out to your Microsoft Contact for next steps on this.
