Cloudera Expands Connect Partner Program
Enhancements to the program include an expansion of resources available in the partner portal, which partners can use to improve communications.Analytic data management software developer Cloudera announced that it has added resources, training, certification and communications to its Connect Partner Program. Program enhancements will provide partners at all levels--which include software and hardware vendors (ISVs and IHVs), service providers, value added resellers (VARs), training partners and systems integrators (SIs)--with improved access to the Cloudera Enterprise platform. The company’s technology certification program already allows partners to work directly with Cloudera to integrate, test and certify their products against Cloudera Enterprise, ensuring third-party products and applications will work with the platform, which is powered by Apache Hadoop. Enhancements to the program include an expansion of resources available in the partner portal, which partners and Cloudera can use to improve direct communications and access to a single location for comprehensive sales content such as training resources, marketing content, use cases, case studies, pre-sale best practices content, battle cards, webinars, partner information, and product roadmap updates.
"Enterprise data stores hold the answers to market success and competitive advantage, the most complex business problems and effective decision-making by a global workforce. Unfortunately, most enterprises haven't yet found a way to unlock the full value of their data to find those answers," Benjamin S. Woo, managing director of Neuralytix, said in a statement. "Organizations that have access to a wide choice of solutions and products will have the ability to create systems that can manage and make the most of big data."
