(Original Webcast: Thursday, October 4, 2012 8:00 am Pacific Daylight Time)
Cloud momentum is growing as public, private, and hybrid clouds all gain traction—creating a myriad of opportunities and challenges for channel partners. With a rich ecosystem of integrated solutions, Cisco, together with our partners, enables customers to deploy tested, best-in-class solutions. Cisco helps partners differentiate their services and enable their customers to connect users to the cloud with the visibility, security, availability, and performance needed for innovative, collaborative cloud applications and services.
To help partners further streamline customer engagement and accelerate their businesses with cloud solutions, Cisco is enhancing its Cisco Channel Partner Program. Cisco is introducing an exclusive Master Cloud Builder Specialization to recognize and reward channel partners who have proven capabilities to build and deploy cloud-ready, integrated infrastructures based on Cisco Unified Data Center solutions, and offers by our industry leading technology ecosystem partners across storage, virtualization, cloud management and virtual desktop. The new Cisco Master Cloud Builder Specialization represents the formal programmatic way to demonstrate partners’ deep competencies in building private clouds for customers or building public clouds for providers.
Also being introduced is Cisco Cloud Partner Marketplace , a unique online tool that offers Cisco’s approved Cloud Builder and Cloud Provider Partners the opportunity to market and promote their Cisco based cloud solutions and services. This new interactive resource enables approved Cisco Cloud Builder and Cloud Provider Partners to share their own videos, collateral, promotions, and offers directly with Cisco customers and Cisco field teams. Partners participating in Cloud Partner Marketplace will be able to design their own microsite within the online environment. Cisco partners can now offer a “one stop shop” to customers, Cisco sales teams and other Cisco Partners and will be able to access these microsites to help them understand the Cisco based cloud capabilities and solutions offered by our partners.
