MSP recruitment, implementation incentives and those pesky ecosystems.
January 9, 2023
Although many in the corporate world closed up shop in mid-December to look forward to the holidays, many providers in the channel were already looking forward. Take HPE, for example, which previewed an invitation-only program within its Partner Ready channel program.
That update, as well as updates from a variety of enterprise technology vendor partner programs, are included in this roundup from the month of December.
A few trends remain popular. MSP recruitment, as evidenced by Perimeter 81’s latest hires, continues to dominate the minds of many channel leaders. In addition, ecosystems – hyped as they might be – seem to carry more mindshare than ever. Consider that Palo Alto Networks moved its channel sales leader’s role into an ecosystem role and added incentives for non-transacting partners.
Channel Futures has forecast that market development funds (MDF), which in the technology advisor channel have traditionally revolved around distributor events, may take a dramatic turn in 2023. Recession-induced budget constraints and questions of ROI may lead vendors to shift the amount, medium and recipients of those funds.
The gallery above features partner-oriented news from leading companies in the IT, telecommunications and customer experience industries. Scroll through the 11 slides above to read stories of newly launched or enhanced partner programs.
