Talend, a global open source software leader, today announced the launch of its redesigned partner program, the Talend Alliance Program. Comprised of a comprehensive set of benefits and services to help systems integrators (SIs) and value-added resellers (VARs) develop and promote solutions in conjunction with Talend, the Talend Alliance Program is designed to make it easier for organizations of all sizes to collaborate with Talend in bringing the benefits of data, application and process integration to their customers around the globe.
The new Talend Alliance Program provides comprehensive benefits to partners who address the increasing demand for open source integration technology. It offers new options for training, technical support and certification programs around Talend’s enterprise-class solutions and delivery capabilities for their customers. Talend also expanded the program to now include its entire suite of best-of-breed products for data integration, data quality, master data management (MDM), enterprise service bus (ESB) and business process management (BPM), all part of the same holistic integration solution and based on the Talend Unified Platform technology. Furthermore, beyond traditional integration projects, Talend’s partners are now able to use Talend’s leading edge technology to address the unique challenges of hybrid cloud integration and Big Data management.
“The Talend Alliance Program is dedicated to facilitating a cooperative environment for our partners and facilitating their contribution to Talend’s growing and influential presence in the enterprise. Open source software relies on a strong community and Talend’s extensive partner network is an integral part of its ecosystem,” said Keith Goldstein, vice president of Channels and Alliances at Talend. “Because our partners are diverse, we are happy to offer them several ways of working with Talend's technology, support and sales teams. The new Talend Alliance Program provides access to advanced tools, while offering dedicated support and training to ensure optimal cooperation between Talend and the partner's team.”
Partner Service Center
Membership of the Talend Alliance Program is divided into four tiers: Diamond, Platinum, Gold and Silver. The Partner Service Center, available to all partners, provides them with a single access point to a wide range of benefits, including on-demand technology and product training, real-time online consulting, go-to-market enablement resources and access to joint marketing initiatives. Taken together, Talend’s partners gain access to easy-to-use and easy-to-implement enterprise-class products, as well as all of the support and training that they need to implement successful projects.
