New Cloud Programs For Channel Partners
Earlier Sunday, during a number of sessions for members of the Oracle Partner Network program, Channel Chief Judson Althoff outlined a number of new initiatives to help Oracle's 25,000 partners expand into cloud services.
Topping the list is a new "specialization" for partners that builds private cloud systems based on Oracle technology -- particularly rewarding those that use the complete Oracle technology "stack." Partners can earn commissions on registered deals to sell Oracle's public cloud services. The Rapid Start Cloud Specialization provides systems integrators and resellers with Oracle expertise to build cloud solutions. And another initiative is designed to recruit ISVs to develop applications for Oracle's Platform-as-a-Service cloud service.
