October sees the launch of Partner Appreciation Month and during the next few weeks we will be sharing success stories, updates and interviews with our valued partners across the world.
We’re on a mission to make data and analytics easy and accessible, for everyone, and the hybrid data cloud is how we’ll get there. Today’s world is a hybrid world—there’s hybrid data, hybrid infrastructure, hybrid work—and leading businesses are embracing these changes, unafraid to transform their processes and technology to ensure they continue to innovate and accelerate growth while reducing risk and costs. With the hybrid data cloud, you can quickly and easily access and analyze all your data, no matter where it resides, to make smarter, data-driven decisions to fuel innovation and growth.
To help customers to move to the hybrid data cloud, we are empowering our partners with new and improved Cloudera Connect experiences. We’ve heard from you, our partners, through our different interactions this year – Partner Sales Kickoff, Partner Summit, and Partner Advisory Council. You want more enablement and go-to-market opportunities and opportunities to work more closely together. That’s why we are looking forward to introducing new enhancements to our program over the next few weeks and months.
From this feedback, we’ve introduced an updated sales and presales learning experience with the new Cloudera Connect Academy now available here. Also, by the end of this year, we will also have new CDP Certifications via Cloudera University to have partners test their CDP skills. Partners today can take advantage of the free CDP training available on Cloudera University.
You also asked for more joint marketing initiatives. That’s why we’re happy to announce we will also be introducing a new channel marketing experience via the all new Cloudera Connect Marketing Center. With this new center, partners can launch fully integrated campaigns with a push of a button. In the meantime, partners can take advantage of our Market Builders Program available on our Partner Portal today.
We’re also highlighting our top partners through the Cloudera Partner Perspective Video Series which is hosted on LinkedIn Live Streams. Partners can view our recordings with Tech Data and Dell and our October episode features Red Hat
As Cloudera moves into its new chapter, focusing on the hybrid data cloud, we will continue listening to our partners and adding significant investments into Cloudera’s partner program to make it even easier for our partners to do business with us such as improving our deal registration policies and process.
