Riverbed Technology has announced updates to the Riverbed Performance Partner Programme.
The company unveiled more partner incentives that build on the existing program benefits of joint engagement, embedded solution and services and selling across the Riverbed solution portfolio with accelerators to drive growth for partners.
In addition, Riverbed shared with partners how it is investing in building a full suite of services that partners can leverage to develop their services portfolio – including SD-WAN-as-a-service, Visibility-as-a-Service, Network-as-a-Service and Branch-as-a-Service – needed to support their customers implementing and operating cloud-first strategies.
“As customers continue to go digital and cloud-first, it opens up significant growth potential for our partners with Riverbed’s disruptive SD-WAN, visibility and software-defined edge solutions, along with our continued leadership in WAN optimization. Earlier this year, we also launched the Riverbed Service Delivery Platform for service providers and partners to enable their network-as-a-service strategy,” says Karl Meulema, senior vice-president: global channels at Riverbed.
“Our platform approach makes us the ideal go-to-market partner in this dynamic industry. It is not only about what we can do better than others, it’s about what we can do that other vendors simply can’t.”
The Riverbed channel ecosystem is composed of a network of focused, dedicated and invested partners across the globe; including technology resellers, solution providers, value added distributors, system integrators and outsourcers and service providers.
