Data analytics software maker Splunk has made some new enhancements to its Partner+ Technology Alliance Program in an effort to increase the value of partners in building connectors, apps and add-ons to Splunk. 

This also involves a new structure for partner engagement solution development across the Splunk portfolio. The program currently supports more than 1900 partner organisations globally made up of distributors, global system integrators, service providers, OEMs, technology alliance partners and value-add resellers. 

Based on technical expertise and go-to-market engagement, Splunk said Technology Alliance Partners now have a clear progression path to earn their way from the entry-level Enrolled tier up to Elite, which is the highest rank in program.

On top of the program changes, Splunk has also enhanced its partner portal featuring an easier way to conduct deal registrations and a new CPQ system, which the vendor says was designed ‘with partners in mind.’

The announcements were made during the 10th annual Splunk user conference .conf19, held in Las Vegas where more than 2200 partners are expected to attend. 

During the conference, Splunk also announced its acquisition of data streaming platform, Streamlio, which Splunk CTO Tim Tully explained will be used to accelerate its efforts in real-time stream processing and containerised multi-tenant cloud platform applications. 

Streamlio is led by CEO Karthik Ramasamy and co-founders Sanjeev Kulkarni and Matteo Merli, which offer up deep expertise in streaming and real-time data processing. 

“As leaders in the stream processing community, Streamlio brings years of experience and expertise to help us continue to enhance and innovate on the capabilities of the Splunk Data Stream Processor and other cloud applications,” Tully said.

“Streamlio’s team also has critical experience with multi-tenant, containerised cloud platform applications. This expertise is going to help Splunk further enable customer’s streaming and overall digital journeys whether they operate on premises, in the cloud or in a hybrid environment.”
