In a move to accelerate adoption of big data, Datameer today launched its newly redesigned global Partner Program to recruit and enable a dynamic ecosystem of technology, services and reseller partners that can help enterprises identify and implement true business value.
Datameer’s new program introduces a highly competitive rewards system that recognizes partners and helps form a trusted and easily accessible network for customers. It’s purposely built for flexibility and designed to avoid channel conflict, ensuring maximum impact and value for all participants. The program includes four categories:
• Technology – When Technology Partners integrate their offerings, both companies benefit. Mutual customers get better results by using the technologies together and when it’s a native-to-Hadoop solution, both solutions increase customer value.
• ISV/OEM – An ISV/OEM partner provides customers with the power of Datameer’s self-service big data integration, preparation, analytics and visualization functionality built directly into its solution.
• Solution Provider/System Integrator – Solution providers and system integrators can generate new opportunities, increase profitability and close deals more quickly either by reselling or referring Datameer opportunities to their clients according to their go-to-market strategy.
• Affiliate – The Affiliate program provides an easy self-service method for lead referrals with less partner commitment.
And, by combining instructor-led training, certification workshops, a free subscription to Datameer University on-demand and e-learning pathways and access to presale solution architects, participants feel empowered to sell, advise and support their customers’ big data initiatives, leveraging the power of Datameer.
Datameer already partners with a number of leading companies including tier 1 business advisory firm Deloitte, systems integrator Fujitsu, solution providers Trace3 and pmOne, technology providers Microsoft and Tableau and Hadoop distribution vendors Cloudera, Hortonworks and MapR, among others.
“There is unlimited potential in a strong partner ecosystem, especially as we continue to grow globally,” said Mark Ferretti, vice president of global business development & worldwide channels. “We’re committed to providing our partners the best possible path to achieve growth, gain new customers, and expand existing relationships.”
“Cloudera and Datameer have been partners for many years, and have a large number of customers running mission critical use cases powered by our joint solution,” said Tim Stevens, VP of business development at Cloudera. “We share the same vision of making big data easily accessible and actionable, and are humbled that together we are helping customers realize the benefits of becoming data driven.”
“Hortonworks is looking forward to working with Datameer to provide organizations with the Connected Data Platforms and Modern Data Applications needed for customers to get value out of all data types and sources,” said Matt Morgan, vice president of product and alliance marketing, Hortonworks. “We share the same commitment to deliver actionable intelligence to customers and this relationship enhances both companies’ abilities to power business transformations.”
“The combination of Datameer with MapR provides organizations with a powerful data platform to achieve greater business value and overcome issues that arrive with massive data growth,” said Geneva Lake, vice president, worldwide alliances, MapR Technologies. “We partner with best-of-breed companies that are investing in making big data easy for organizations to manage, and that are constantly, and consistently, innovating.”
“Organizations need to ensure that they have the right infrastructures in place to manage and analyze data volumes in a cost effective and efficient manner. With Fujitsu’s Integrated System PRIMEFLEX for Hadoop, including Datameer analytics, customers can accelerate time to insight, discover new ways to extract value from data and see higher return on investment,” said Fujitsu Technology Solutions’ Head of Big Data Competence Center and Distinguished Engineer, Dr. Fritz Schinkel. “This approach – open to all data-intensive usage scenarios – has already been evidenced by informative reference cases (e.g. weather and climate trend analysis) to optimize energy harvesting as well as genomic data research which involves DNA sequencing, assembly and analysis in order to identify key markers and variants within the genetic makeup.”
“With the rate at which our big data practice is growing, it’s very important that we invest in partnerships with companies and technologies that we believe have true staying power, especially in this ever-evolving industry,” said Carey Moretti, vice president at Trace3. “In our 14 years of business, Trace3 has found the most success with the partners that bring a perfect blend of synergy and innovation and those are definitely two qualities that Datameer brings to the table.”
“We are thrilled to be a part of Datameer’s Global Partner Program,” said Antonio Figueroa Barraza, CEO of Raken Data Group. “The strength of our two organizations working together will deliver significant value to our customers. Datameer’s powerful data analytics combined with our consulting and implementation expertise ensures the development of innovative models that will capitalize on the benefits of big data and drive business strategy and success.”
