This is a glossary of acronyms used internally by Microsoft. This is not a glossary of acronyms related to products or technologies. Other glossaries cover those. Instead, these acronyms are often encountered in Microsoft blog posts or other communications
with Microsoft personnel. They can refer to Microsoft groups, management positions, product stages, types of product updates, certifications, internal Microsoft programs, or Microsoft online platforms and communities.
An acronym is an abbreviated term formed from the first letter (or first few letters) of several words. Because the acronyms listed here are not industry standards, they can be difficult to research if you are not familiar with them.
