Entitlements

There are a robust set of entitlements designed to support developers through every phase of their business cycle. Entitlements are incremental: Preferred Solution Developers receive all the resources at the Solution Developer and Registered Developer levels, and Solution Developers receive all the resources at the Registered Developer level. Access to some entitlements is available upon program acceptance, while others may require successful completion of Interoperability Verification Testing or satisfaction of other criteria. Entitlements are provided based on your participation level and achievement within particular technology categories.
