The Technology Adoption Program is designed to provide a consistent experience for Microsoft partners to obtain real-world customer feedback on Microsoft pre-release products.
Participating customers find that some of the most powerful benefits include:
Product team engineering
help in deploying their Microsoft solutions.
Early product education.
An opportunity to influence product through their feedback.
The strategic edge all this can give them in their line of business.
The goal is to improve customer/partner experiences in evaluating and adopting our technologies and improve our ability to track and manage customer/partner relationships across programs. TAP is not an additional program. There are four different types of TAPs:
