Hortonworks Expands Partnerworks Program for MSPs and Modern Data Solutions

Partnerworks-logo_main_FINAL_OUTLINEWe launched our new Partnerworks program earlier this year and since then, we’ve seen massive interest and growth of partners in the program. Partnerworks provides a global infrastructure to support and enable our 1,800+ partners in selling, implementing, and innovating with our solutions as well as helping to amplify our joint voice through go to market motions. At today’s Hadoop Summit, we announced an expansion of our Partnerworks program with two new offerings for partners: Managed Service Provider Program and Modern Data Solutions, a new level in the ISV/IHV Program. The new Managed Service Provider Program and Modern Data Solutions level include tailored benefits to support partner success for these additional partner types and help augment our existing Partnerworks programs to address the growing requirements of managing all data for customers. We now have programs within Partnerworks that work for all partners including:

  • The Consultant program: Provides education and certification paths for design, consulting and/or deployment services for consultants and systems integrators that work with Hortonworks’ Connected Data Platforms.
  • The Reseller program: Addresses the needs of resellers of all types and sizes whether they are boutique, regional and global partners to resell Hortonworks support subscriptions and other services to their customers.
  • The new Managed Service Provider (MSP) program: Provides a support-focused partnering approach for companies delivering managed services that include Hortonworks products. The program enables Managed Service Providers to certify their ability to deliver support for their customer Connected Data Platform environments powered by Hortonworks solutions.
  • ISV/IHV program: Provides joint go-to-market capabilities to ISV and IHV partners who have certified integrations with Hortonworks solutions that enable Connected Data Platforms powered by Hortonworks. The new Modern Data Solutions level expands this further to qualifying ISV and IHV partners.

These programs provide opportunities for partners to participate in advancing tiers. Hortonworks remains committed to arming our partner ecosystem with comprehensive training, technical support, sales and marketing resources to support our combined success in the Big Data Market.

This is great news, especially for medium-sized enterprises who may not have the resources to manage HDP themselves. We all know the complexity associated with managing Hadoop solutions and ‘managed services’ makes a lot of sense.
