Pivotal announced the Pivotal Ready Partner Program, designed to build deep expertise and thriving businesses with the Pivotal Cloud Foundry platform.
Pivotal Cloud Foundry's capabilities enhance developer productivity, enable operational excellence, and provide enterprise-grade security, scalability, high availability, and operational control. With the new Pivotal Ready Partner Program, Pivotal’s partner ecosystem will play a critical role in helping customers make the transition to a modern, digital enterprise.
“From the C-level down, companies are facing digital transformation and must change how they deliver software and data,” said Nick Cayou, VP Global Alliances at Pivotal. “These same companies are making strategic, long-term decisions that designate Pivotal Cloud Foundry as the core platform for all future digital initiatives, allowing them to respond quickly and meaningfully to market opportunities and threats.”
The Pivotal Ready Partner Program is a service program developed exclusively to support the system integrator and consultant community around Pivotal Cloud Foundry, with two tiers:
- Registered: the base-level tier where Partners begin developing knowledge and expertise around Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
- Advanced: a more robust partner investment with Pivotal, including benefits such as discounted fees on select instructor-led courses, an assigned Pivotal Alliance Manager, and an appointed Pivotal Platform Architect. Advanced partners are often building a practice around Pivotal Cloud Foundry.
As part of the Pivotal Ready Partner Program, Pivotal also introduced collaborations with partners Accenture, Altoros, Cognizant, Crosslake, ECS Team, Grape Up, INSYS Group, Kenzan, L&T Infotech, mimacom, Perficient, and ProKarma, among others.
