Another Accolade for the SUSE ONE Partner Program
It gives me great pleasure to announce that the SUSE ONE Partner Program has been named a Finalist in the coveted TSIA Star Awards.
The Innovation in Partner Channel Ecosystems for XaaS award recognises organizations that have innovated in unique ways to engage partners synergistically in their partner channel ecosystem for their “as-a-Service” offers. So, to be named as a Finalist is a fantastic acknowledgement of the work that we’ve done to make our partner program fit for purpose for our partner ecosystem.
The TSIA STAR Awards are one of the highest honours in the service and technology sector, recognizing commitment to innovation, leadership and excellence. In a year with unprecedented participation levels in these prestigious awards, we are delighted to celebrate this accolade for the SUSE ONE Partner Program that we are so proud of.
The SUSE ONE Partner Program was born out of the challenges our partners were facing as a result of the pandemic. Partners needed to innovate, work differently and respond to the changing market.
The SUSE ONE Partner Program recognized this need and by creating six different specializations to identify with, partners are now able to easily adopt, align with or change their specialization(s) according to business strategy.
Whether partners choose to participate in one or more of our BUILD, INNOVATE, SELL, MANAGE, SERVICE, and TRAIN specializations, they can access training, sales tools, deal registration and more all through our easy-to-use portal.
As a result of the SUSE ONE Partner Program, our partners have been supported in their business transformation initiatives.
For Managed Service Providers, who are part of the MANAGE specialization, there are increased opportunities to open up revenue tracks by incorporating SUSE’s open source technologies into their as-a-service offerings.
Improvements to partner profitability for our SELL specialization partners resulted in 38% more partners submitting a deal registration compared to last year.
Thomas Lah, Executive Director and Executive VP at TSIA said, “This year, our winners demonstrated an unparalleled focus on the customer experience, operational merit, and dedication to excellence despite the continued uncertainty and the ever-changing circumstances on a global economic scale. The outcomes of their innovation have set these exceptional companies apart from their peers.”
Congratulations to everyone involved in helping us to achieve this accolade and of course to the other winners and finalists of the TSIA STAR Awards.
