Hewlett Packard Enterprise has announced updates to its “Partner Ready Vantage” program, which is designed to augment partners in the delivery of as-a-service solutions.
New features include a Rapid migration tool, which integrates HPE’s consulting experiences, automation, and tools to enable end-to-end application migration to hybrid cloud. Currently, VMware migrations are available, with additional capabilities to come. The tool is available to partners that are enrolled in the Professional Services Center of Expertise.
In addition, partners are now able to layer their own services and customization on top of HPE GreenLake. This experience is available to partners that are enrolled in the Managed Services Center of Expertise.
The company has also expanded its consulting services for HPE Aruba Networking, which include business planning and service discovery workshops for Solution Providers and Managed Service Providers, guided walk-throughs on developing NaaS or HPE Aruba Networking as-a-service business plans, and a new practice accelerator tool to help partners assess the strength and maturity of their HPE Aruba Networking NaaS managed services practice. These services are available to partners that are enrolled in the Customer Success or Managed Services Center of Expertise.
Additional Aruba resources and training have also been added for partners that are enrolled in the As-a-Service Center of Expertise. Various Competencies, serving topics such as Edge, Hybrid Cloud, and AI, have also been updated.
“Partners can now leverage HPE’s IP, tools, and resources to further enable business growth and increase revenue across the HPE GreenLake as-a-service portfolio as customers look to them to deploy solutions to enhance and manage their information and data,” said Simon Ewington, Vice President of Worldwide Channel & Partner Ecosystem at HPE.
HPE Partner Ready Vantage is now open and available to all partners.
The updated competency framework is expected to better support partner expertise across Edge, Hybrid Cloud, and AI.
