Rising stars (5)
It stands to reason that older IT companies with more established channel operations will account for most of the partner programs that get a 5-star rating. But some emerging vendors, founded in 2014 and more recently, have aggressively pursued channel-driven strategies and developed partnership programs worthy of the 5-star designation.
The Partner Program Guide 2020 provides the information solution providers need to evaluate the channel programs operated by the IT vendors they work with or plan to partner with. The guide is based on detailed requests submitted by vendors – over 230 this year – describing all aspects of their partner programs.
For the purposes of the Partner Program Guide, CRN refers to certain programs as 5 Star Partner Programs because they offer the most comprehensive range of incentives, training, services and benefits.
Here we are providing snapshots of 5 Star Applicants who are Emerging Suppliers, Companies founded in 2014 or newer. Details of each vendor’s partner program can be found here.
Other slideshows in the 5 Star Partner Program guide series taking place this week will include companies that provide products and services for Networking and Unified Communications, Cloud, Systems and Data Center, software and applications, security, devices and peripherals, and data storage and backup, and distributors. While many companies offer products and services spanning multiple technologies, we have assigned each vendor the slideshow of the technology category in which they are most important.
