  • I have FOUR TIMES emailed the only available addresses and do so again. NOT ONCE has anyone responded. Perhaps if my email address was Johns Hopkins or CDC or Humana someone might reply, but regular small business inquiries are simply IGNORED.

    Small businesses - the 97% of AMERICAN companies -- are apparently totally irrelevant to Microsoft - including the so-called "regional representatives" who are so busy with themselves they have no time to be bothered with Partner emails.

    As I have FIVE TIMES asked ----

    Please provide information about

    1) listing our solution / services (SharePoint 2010 / SQL Server 2012)


    Please provide information about

    2) joining the community.

    Welcome to the Health Solutions Group (HSG) Partner Portal. This is a private community that helps Microsoft HSG partners reach their full potential.


    I do not want an application form -- I want information about the requirements / benefits of joining. There is ZERO useful information on the web site.
