Win with Cohesity's New File and Object Professional Services Authorization for Partners
Digital transformation has become a team sport. Enterprises and their implementation partners are in business together to win. Yet with more competition for clients than ever, how can systems integrators (SIs), global service providers (GSIs), solution providers (SPs), and resellers step up their professional services games to better meet customers’ data management challenges? The fastest way is by becoming certified in the newest Cohesity Professional Services (PS) Authorization for partners solution for File and Object or by expanding your Cohesity PS Authorization with Data Protection.
The debut of the File and Object PS Authorization for partners is an opportunity for SIs, GSIs, SPs, and resellers to deepen their customer relationships and differentiate their offerings in the data management market. It’s also an opportune time for these partners to take a strategic step to drive top-line growth.
Customers and Partners Reap the Benefits of Cohesity PS Authorization
Cohesity PS Authorization gives prospects and clients confidence that partners have certified individuals with direct access to Cohesity PS experts and methodologies to deliver successful business outcomes. PS Authorized File and Object partners and Cohesity PS work together to reduce complexity for organizations seeking to move beyond legacy Network Attached Storage (NAS), file and object products to modern data management infrastructure.
Concurrently, partners drive top-line growth while lowering expenses because Cohesity eliminates the costs and hassles of building a practice from the ground up. Cohesity-focused, partner-branded PS jumpstarts initiatives and continues throughout the project lifecycle—from pre-sales to installation and deployment to post-sales engagement.
We are thrilled to see Cohesity expanding its PS Authorization to include Cohesity SmartFiles. We have already experienced success from our PS Authorization for Cohesity DataProtect and this gives us yet another opportunity to grow our data management business. – Doug Austin, Director – Modern DataCenter at Trace3.
Second Authorization from Cohesity PS Portfolio
Cohesity began officially recognizing, enabling, and supporting partners delivering Cohesity-focused, partner branded PS in the solution area of Data Protection for Cohesity DataProtect to mutual customers worldwide in 2021.
