The Cloud Platform partner competency (https://partner.microsoft.com/en-us/membership/cloud-platform-competency) lists the following for the Azure Consumption option requirements:

Developed Markets
Partners must demonstrate US $15000 Azure customer consumption within the previous 12 months

Developing Markets
Partners must demonstrate US $10000 Azure customer consumption within the previous 12 months

I'm not clear however on what the differenece between 'developed' and 'developing' markets is. Can anyone explain?

Thanks!

    @Peter Cranston Developed here you can say is the mature deployments who have adapted the Azure model in their business and developing is the new start-up that's why CSP has Gold and Silver tiers according to the business stage of the cusomer.
