The small business I work for is looking into options for obtaining MSDN licensing and I was wondering if anyone with personal experience could briefly summarize the steps and requirements in becoming and maintaining a Microsoft Certified Partner title.
I have looked over the requirements list and from what I can tell a qualified business is one which offers Microsoft solutions to other businesses and employs individuals who meet certain accreditation requirements as put forth by Microsoft (this is where I'm fuzzy on the specifics).
As a point of reference, the organization I represent constructs ASP.NET website solutions for small to medium sized businesses. I am the only person employed by our organization who currently holds a MCP certification (C# WinForms), but I am also the only person who actually does .NET development (the other employees are either in design or accounting). Our organization consists of about 6 people and it has been established for more than 3 years so unfortunately BizSpark is not a viable option.
