Early Technology Adoption Programs

Microsoft Business Framework team has begun an early Technology Adoption Program that is currently engaging with ISV’s focusing on business applications development. Although the Technology Adoption Program is currently near full there will be other opportunities to engage with the MBF tools.

The plan includes the following:

  1. Technology Adoption Program for 50-100 ISV’s that have strategic market share in select geographic areas developing or maintaining a business application.
  2. An Alpha release of less than or equal to 500 developers leveraging Microsoft technology currently experienced in their own business application maintenance or development.
  3. Beta release of >2000 developers focusing on business application development.

If you feel you would be interested in being added to a list to be contacted when a beta program is ready to accept applications please email your contact information with a Subject: Add me to your MBF Beta nominations list to: contact.
