-- Annual guide recognizes the channel’s top partner programs --
Tinton Falls, NJ – April 13, 2017 – Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud, today, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Commvault a 5-Star rating in its 2017 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
The Commvault Partner Advantage™ Program enables its partners to use the Commvault® Data Platform to help their enterprise clients implement powerful holistic data management strategies that enable them to protect, control and activate their data – be it on the cloud, on-premises or on device -- for competitive advantage. By leveraging the strengths of Commvault’s powerful single platform, Commvault’s partners can deliver their customers unsurpassed feature-for-feature performance against alternative point-level solutions, and solve their customers’ data management problems through policy-based automation, application integration and global reporting across environments.
In addition, with a worldwide ecosystem of both alliance and solution partners, Commvault has created the 'power of three' (Commvault, alliance partner and solution provider) that differentiates Commvault’s solutions in the market, creating more opportunity for the entire ecosystem.
“For solution providers, finding the right technology vendors to partner with is crucial to the health of their business, and the vast array of choices can be overwhelming,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and outlining their strengths and benefits.”
To determine the 2017 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
“For the fourth consecutive year, we are very pleased to receive this 5-Star rating from CRN,” said Ralph Nimergood, Vice President of Worldwide Channels & Alliances. “This recognition further demonstrates our commitment to providing our partners with powerful software that enables them to build differentiated and profitable cloud data management practices. These software offerings combined with our innovative channel programs and alliance partnerships, have enabled us to build a world-class partner eco-system that makes it easy for our partners to monetize the large opportunity in front of them as they help their customers “journey to the cloud”.
Commvault’s Nimergood was named to CRN’s 2017 Channel Chiefs list.
