BMC Nets 5-Star Rating in CRN’s Partner Program Guide for Tenth Consecutive Year
HOUSTON — May 23, 2016 — BMC, the global leader in IT solutions for the digital enterprise, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given BMC a 5-Star rating in its 2016 Partner Program Guide for the tenth consecutive year. The annual 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
BMC’s Partner Advantage channel program is specifically designed to attract, educate, and enable valued channel partners so they can help customers navigate and thrive in the digital economy. The program provides extensive training, incentives, certifications, enablement and joint events to help valued partners create opportunities and deliver results.
“The last year has brought a lot of positive change to the BMC Partner Advantage Program – especially around partner compensation, certification and badging,” said Tim Yario, president, Column Technologies. “These impactful improvements have deepened our relationship with BMC and have enabled us to prepare our customers for the digital economy and helped fuel our growth”.
"Solution providers have more choices than ever before when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor with the right technologies and the right channel approach can mean the difference between successful adoption of a new technology or business model and an awkward, unnecessarily difficult integration,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings recognize the best channel programs available in the market today and serve as a valuable resource for solution providers looking for the right fit.”
“We’re thrilled to be receiving this elite rating for the tenth consecutive year. BMC is committed to the success of our partners, and this rating validates the innovative solutions, programs, support, and training that comprise our distinctive channel program,” said Sanjay Gupta, vice president of partner sales for BMC.
To determine the 2016 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.
The 2016 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg2016.
