Windows Accelerate


Accelerate Windows 10 adoption

Earn the Devices and Deployment competency and use funding from the Windows Accelerate program to build apps and deploy Windows 10.



Get fast-tracked to Windows 10 adoption

Windows Accelerate provides Microsoft funding and resources for partners to engage customers in 1:1 Proof-of-concepts and pilots that demonstrate the value of Windows 10 and universal apps. The program is designed to help you build prototype universal apps and design deployment solutions catered specifically to your customers’ needs.

There are two types of Windows Accelerate engagements:
  • Proof-of-concept (PoC) engagements help customers deploy Windows 10 infrastructure solutions and build universal app prototypes in a lab-based environment (non-production). These engagements highlight business scenarios and demonstrate the value of the Windows platform. PoC engagements typically range from 1 to 15 days.
  • Production pilot offerings help customers deploy Windows 10 in a production environment. Production pilots are typically longer and more involved engagements, lasting up to 10 weeks.

You can leverage the Application Development program to engage customers in PoCs. Application Development engagements assist customers in building universal apps that highlight innovative and exciting scenarios enabled by Windows 10.
