We are excited to announce that the Exchange On-Premises TAP Program is accepting nominations!
The purpose of this post is to provide you with the opportunity to nominate your company for the Exchange On-Premises Technology Adoption Program (TAP) Program. Joining the Exchange On-Premises TAP Program provides companies with a number of advantages, such as providing input and feedback for future releases, developing a close relationship with the Exchange Product Team; receiving pre-release information about Exchange, and more.
The Exchange On-Premises TAP Program is designed to validate the next version of Exchange Server by having customers test deployments of pre-release builds of Exchange in their own production environment. This gives participants the opportunity to provide feedback to the Exchange product development team. Customers in the TAP Program are provided free support from Microsoft Customer Services and Support (CSS) for issues encountered with Exchange. Additional information on the TAP Program is discussed in this blog entry from a number of years ago, which is still quite relevant today: http://msexchangeteam.com/archive/2004/12/29/343848.aspx

If you feel your Company fits what we are looking for, you can nominate yourself by filling out this form:
On-premises TAP Program self-nomination form
Note: This form is located on an Office 365 site and is for our business customers to self-nominate for inclusion in future Office pre-release programs. If you are a Microsoft representative and would like to nominate a customer you are working with, please contact us directly and we will provide appropriate guidance.
All nominations, internal and external, are reviewed and screened prior to acceptance into a program. No customers are allowed access to any pre-release downloads or information until all legal paperwork is properly executed. Nomination does not mean acceptance… not all nominees will be chosen for a program.
