CRN Exclusive: Puppet Channel Chief On 'Partner-Centric' Transformation And DevOps Opportunities For The Channel

Kyle Alspach

What are your biggest goals for Puppet's partner program?

It's a path of partner centricity. And what I mean by that is, Puppet has a robust ecosystem, but did not have a complete global -- or even North America -- partner vision, as related to how to engage the partner community effectively. And with Puppet Enterprise continuing to grow, it provides a unique opportunity for those partners that have built a data center practice, and that are experiencing this digital transformation that's going on. So whether you call it DevOps, digital transformation, moving to the cloud, Agile IT -- all those are influences that Puppet can make better. We solve these real-world problems, and these are the problems that legacy hardware and software development have created. And so Puppet has a unique solution in the market, and a unique opportunity for partners. It's a highly service-driven opportunity for partners to engage with. The timing's right -- the market is in hyper-growth right now. Many customers are either migrating off of open source, or realizing that with their DevOps strategy it's important to have Puppet as a key component of it. Or, doing management and automation more effectively, and using Puppet as the facilitator for that. So this is right in the sweet spot for solution providers.
