Hola, amigos, and welcome to this week’s Channel Partner Program Roundup, our weekly collection of all things channel partner-related. This week we’ve got news from Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL), Intel (NASDAQ: INTL) and NACR so grab your fancy hat and let’s ride.
Oracle: OneNeck IT Services has renewed its Gold-level membership in Oracle PartnerNetwork. By renewing OneNeck’s Gold-level status, Oracle recognizes OneNeck for its commitment to deliver comprehensive Oracle solutions and for uniquely addressing the challenges of joint customers.
OneNeck provides Oracle product management and hosting for its applications and technology through its cloud-enabled hosted application management solutions, including the Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle’s JD Edwards and Hyperion environments. OneNeck hosts Oracle Applications in its company-owned and operated enterprise-class SSAE16 Type II data center facilities.
Intel: En Pointe Technologies was recently honored with a 2012 Marketing Achievement Award by Intel for “driving new waves of social media,” doing the first Intel Facebook contest. The award was presented during Intel’s 2013 Solutions Summit in Los Angeles in March.
According to the company, the Intel Marketing Achievement Award recognizes partners' outstanding efforts in Intel-related marketing campaigns. En Pointe was recognized for launching the first Facebook contest in coordination with the business launch of the Intel Ultrabook, that allowed participants to submit photos of their most interesting workspace. “The Ultra Interesting Workspace Contest” was developed to recognize those companies and individuals who have created interesting and inspiring workspaces in their office cubicle, home office, or at a remote location.
In conjunction with the contest, En Pointe held an “Ultra Exclusive Event” tour to showcase the Ultrabook product lineup to CIOs at large enterprises in 10 cities across the country in December 2012.
NACR: Talari Networks, provider of solutions to increase WAN reliability and application quality, has entered a channel partnership with solutions integration provider NACR, which was named 2012 Avaya U.S. Services Partner of the Year.
Under the partnership, NACR is incorporating Talari’s family of Mercury APN (Adaptive Private Networking) WAN appliances into its portfolio of solutions to enhance the collaboration, contact center and data communication experience for its 5,500+ customers, including more than 40 percent of the Fortune 100 companies in the United States.
Talari and NACR will also position Talari's Mercury WAN appliances as a replacement solution for the many contact centers that still rely on Avaya's discontinued Converged Network Analyzer (CNA) technology.
And that’s this week’s Channel Partner Program Roundup. Check back next week to see what’s what in the channel partner space. Until then, stay safe, amigos.
