Partner deployment support
Microsoft realizes that partners play a crucial role deploying customers on Microsoft Office 365 in all segments. To support them, we provide guidance, tools, training, and deployment support to deploy Microsoft Office 365 quickly and efficiently.
Deployment guidance and tools
Microsoft Online Deployment Guide (MODG) is guidance developed by Microsoft Premier Deployment (MPD) based on their customer deployments, and incorporates best practices for Office 365 deployments. A web edition of the deployment guide is also available.
In addition, the Office 365 Deployment Readiness Tool beta has been released that provides analysis of a customer’s on-premises environment in preparation for an Office 365 enterprise deployment. The readiness tool is integrated with the guidance provided in the web edition of the Microsoft Office 365 Deployment Guide.
The MPD team has also developed a three-day instructor-led program to train partners on deployments. The training is delivered by members of the MPD team who have been involved in deploying customers. Partners can register for these training events here.
