Intel has launched Intel Partner Alliance, unifying the company’s Technology Provider, IOT Solutions Alliance and Cloud Insider programs into a single offering for the company’s full partner ecosystem.
“The new Intel Partner Alliance will better reflect the diversity of business models among partners and give them the opportunity to maximize program benefits,” said Eric Thompson, general manager of Intel Global Partner Enablement. “We appreciate each of our partners for their continued collaboration to bring new technologies to life for our customers across the world.”
The launch is anchored by a redesigned portal that will incorporate the Intel Partner University and the Intel Solutions Marketplace into one platform.
Key elements of the new Intel Partner Alliance include a stronger focus on a wider variety of partner roles, including field programmable gate array design services, cloud service provider, independent software vendor, distributor, manufacturer, solution provider, original equipment manufacturer and service integrator.
Intel Partner University will feature deeper training to help partners to grow their expertise on a variety of topics, solutions and specialties.
The Solutions Marketplace features new opportunities for partner connections and matchmaking, lead generation and management, and storefront monitoring.
The new program is designed to enhance Intel’s relationship with partners, strengthen interactions among partners, improve customer experience, and accelerate new market opportunities.
