Orlando, Fla — April 11, 2011 —
Pentaho, the pioneer in agile business intelligence (BI), has been awarded a Five-Star Partner Rating by theCRN 2011 Partner Programs Guide. CRN’s Partner Programs Guide and Five-Star Partner ratings serve as the definitive list of vendors that have robust partner programs or products that service solution providers offer directly to the IT channel. The annual list recognizes the vendors who offer solution providers the best possible partnering elements for channel success.
Over the past year, Pentaho’s channel program experienced significant growth both in North America and in EMEA, LATAM and APAC markets via strategic partnerships with authorized resellers and SI partners. In 2011, Pentaho has doubled its commitment to joint events with its partners via the Pentaho Fast Track BI seminar series, a global series of free, live, events that showcase the benefits of agile BI implementations.
“The companies listed on the 2011 Partner Programs Guide represent the best channel programs in the market today. Of those, only a few get our five-star award, based on their commitment to the channel, breadth of program offerings and services offered to their partners. Each of these organizations understands that technology alone does not make for a successful channel program. By focusing on delivering a comprehensive partner program, vendors and solution providers can work together to drive business opportunities and revenue,” said Kelley Damore, VP and Editorial Director, for Everything Channel’s CRN.
“The 5-Star Partner designation from CRN recognizes Pentaho’s commitment to furthering the success of its incumbent worldwide partner ecosystem,” said Tom Leonard, executive vice president, worldwide business development, Pentaho Corporation. “Whether it’s through joint events, pipeline development activities, partners realizing services revenues via the growing adoption of Pentaho products, or delivering greater satisfaction to existing installed customers, Pentaho is dedicated to help our partners succeed.”
