Annual Guide Recognizes the IT Channel’s Strongest and Most Successful Partner Programs
San Jose, Calif., April 1, 2019 – Cohesity, the leader of hyperconverged secondary storage, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Cohesity a 5-Star rating in its 2019 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide identifies the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today, offered by the top technology suppliers for IT products and services. The 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the 2019 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each supplier’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.
As a 100-percent channel-focused company, Cohesity has built a connected ecosystem of partners that customers can trust to simplify and consolidate their secondary data and applications on a unified platform that seamlessly spans on-premises data centers and public clouds. The program provides partners with comprehensive free training, sales tools, aggressive marketing campaigns, and incentives for companies to market and sell their own initiatives.
The Cohesity Partner Program includes several key differentiators:
“With new technologies emerging every year, evaluating which IT vendors to partner with grows increasingly more complex for solution providers,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “We are proud the CRN Partner Program Guide has become the trusted resource to identify the most rewarding partner programs and provides crucial insight into their strengths and benefits for the channel.”
“The 5-Star rating in CRN’s 2019 Partner Program Guide validates Cohesity’s commitment to our partners and the major effort and investment that we have made in our partner program,” said Todd Palmer, vice president, worldwide channels, Cohesity. “Together with our partners, Cohesity is committed to creating a best-in-class program that empowers organizations to easily back up, store, and manage all of their secondary data while also solving critical mass data fragmentation challenges that are impacting enterprises globally.”
The 2019 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
