CA Technologies has announced enhancements to its Global Partner Programme, including new business planning tools and additional sales support.
“Our partners are creating hybrid models for customers migrating to hybrid environments that require transitions across multiple platforms and providers,” says David Bradley, senior vice president, Global Partners. “As a result, the enhancements to our CA Global Partner Programme address this industry shift. Since the launch of our programme over a year ago, we’ve remained committed to building business together with our partners. We have delivered a unified, flexible program that provides enablement and fosters working collaboratively to drive success for our mutual customers," he adds.
To help support market adoption and allow partners to leverage CA Technologies market leadership, the company also announced that in FY14 it will launch a new programme feature expected to enable service providers to identify their qualifying managed service offerings as being of the enterprise class quality associated with CA Technologies solutions.
The enhancements include Managed Service Offering (MSO) assets with integrated and packaged modular solutions ready for rapid deployment for faster time to value, as well as the new Center of Excellence (CoE) Library and workshop content available to Service Providers (SP) through the CA Partner Portal, including information on services definition, launch assistance, operational expertise and marketing best practices.
The company is also offering additional marketing support, with business plan-based business development funds for Premier and Advanced members, as well as co-marketing programmes and services for Premier and Advanced Members.
