SUSE One Continues to Improve, Gain Recognition
It has been almost two years since the team at SUSE reimagined the framework of our partner program. In response to the changing demands of the market and the channel, we set out to build a structure around six areas of specialization. Each was created with unique partner types in mind, and provides the ability for organizations to adapt, accelerate, and grow their business practice as technology trends and customer requirements continue their evolution.
In 2021, that radical change in format to the SUSE One Partner Program earned us a 5-Star Rating from CRN, and today, we’re happy to announce that SUSE has been awarded that honor for the 2nd year in a row.
What is the CRN 5-Star Rating
The annual Partner Program Guide rating given by CRN includes the most notable partner programs from industry-leading technology vendors that provide innovative products and flexible services through the IT channel. The 5-star rating is only given to vendors that excel in their programs by driving partner focused market opportunity and growth.
Companies are scored based on their investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education & support, marketing programs & resources, sales support, and communication.
SUSE is honored to receive this recognition again.
Our Ongoing Investments in Partner Success
As the SUSE One Partner Program continues to improve and expand around the unique needs of our ecosystem, so do the tools and resources that support it. Our program team is continually updating incentives, enhancing processes around deal registration, introducing new program training & certification courses, and adding beneficial selling resources.
In addition, the SUSE One partner portal recently underwent a comprehensive design overhaul. As the hub for partner activity, the updates will help SUSE scale program growth and better serve our growing community of partners and open source practitioners.
If you’re an existing partner and haven’t seen the updates, be sure and take a look at the portal. For those considering joining SUSE One, there’s never been a better time to find success with open source and SUSE offerings.
