The most comprehensive partner programs are usually provided by the largest and most established IT vendors. Solution providers expect more resources, support and incentives from these partner programs
And yet, some startups, recognizing the value of the chain, operate world-class chain programs early in their evolution.
the CRN The 2022 Partner Program Guide offers the information solution providers need to evaluate the channel programs operated by the IT vendors they are working with or considering partnering with. The guide is based on detailed applications submitted by vendors (more than 300 this year) outlining all aspects of their partner programs.
As part of the Partner Program Guide, CRN designates certain programs as 5-Star Partner Programs because they offer the most comprehensive ranges of incentives, training, services and benefits.
Here we provide snapshots of those designated 5 stars among emerging vendors – companies founded in 2016 or more recently. Details of each provider’s partner program can be found here.
Other slideshows in the 5 Star Partner Program guide series include companies that provide products and services for systems and data centers, cloud platforms and infrastructure, networking and unified communications, software, security, devices and peripherals, and data storage and backup. While many companies offer products and services that span multiple technologies, we’ve assigned each vendor to the slideshow of the technology category in which they’re most important.
