Cloudera has announced that it has expanded its Cloudera Connect Partner Programme with the launch of a Cloudera Solutions Gallery, the addition of Cloudera Partner Impact Awards, and enhancements to the Cloudera Connect Channel Programme.
Cloudera Connect Partner Programme aims to help customers and partners fully utilise their current investments as well as to support building the next generation analytics platforms for data intensive workloads such as AI and machine learning.
“We’ve put a great deal of thought and work into these programme additions and they underscore Cloudera’s commitment to its partner ecosystem, which expanded by 712 partners, or 33 per cent, in 2016,” said Vishal Rao, senior vice president, Field Operations, Cloudera. “Customers are the ultimate and most important beneficiaries of the Cloudera Connect Partner Programme, and we encourage our partners to submit for the Cloudera Partner Impact Awards. For those who haven’t yet joined, today there is even more reason to.”
To better appreciate and honour its partners, Cloudera today launched the Cloudera Partner Impact Awards, which will consist of two categories: Best Solutions and Business Excellence.
●Best Solutions — These awards will recognise Cloudera partners worldwide that create the most innovative solutions directly aligning with the top business value drivers:
●Business Excellence — These awards will recognise both locally and globally the partners that achieve the highest impact in delivering business results.
Finally, Cloudera also has enriched its existing partner programme with substantial enhancements to its channel partner programme, which will offer even more ways for Cloudera Connect partners to work with Cloudera. The enhanced Partner Programme will include added benefits for Channel partners:
●Accelerate skills development through Cloudera training, bootcamp, and certification
●Drive demand and pipeline generation through joint go-to-market planning and execution
●Increase profitability through service delivery kits and accelerators
Steve Wooledge, vice president of Marketing at Arcadia Data commented, “This is an excellent resource for organisations on their big data journey to quickly see solutions that fit their business needs. Customers interested in scalable visual analytic solutions can see Arcadia Data in action for cybersecurity and connected devices on Cloudera’s Solutions Gallery. ”
