Oracle has launched a new cloud program within Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) enabling existing and new Oracle partners to grow their cloud business with Oracle.
“Cloud is our top priority and we are aligning our resources to that strategic initiative,” said Shawn Price, senior vice president, Cloud, Oracle. “We will work with our partner ecosystem to pivot to the cloud and fully capitalize on the historic opportunity before us. We remain committed to expanding our partner community and providing all of its valued members the tools, technology and expertise they need to deliver excellence to our joint customers and succeed in the market.”
The newly announced cloud program is designed to help partners take advantage of Oracle’s integrated cloud portfolio to successfully transition new and existing customers to the cloud, assuring partners’ success in this accelerated market.
New cloud program designations unveiled within OPN will be launched February 1, 2016, offering OPN members the opportunity to showcase expertise, skills and their investment in the Oracle Cloud as well as differentiate themselves with Oracle’s Integrated Cloud Applications and Platform Services. These designations complement existing OPN program levels to provide tiers of recognition and progressive level benefits. Working with Oracle in the cloud will significantly support partners’ cloud business strategy, and provide them with the framework to build that success. OPN now offers the most comprehensive portfolio of cloud programs to enable partners to fully realize the competitive advantages offered through Oracle’s cloud services.
In addition, Oracle launched a new entry point into the OPN program called the Cloud Registered level. This program provides immediate opportunities for new cloud partners to begin their journey and grow their business with the Oracle Cloud, requiring no initial investment.
