MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of the industry’s only Converged Data Platform, has unveiled the MapR Converge Partners global program that will provide partners the technical and go-to-market resources necessary to jointly deliver outstanding customer experiences and address growing demand for the MapR Platform.
The Converge Partners program focuses on nurturing alliances worldwide with select consultancies, platform and software providers, resellers, and distributors.
The new Converge Partners program is comprised of three tiers: Affiliate, Preferred, and Elite. Benefits of this program include world-class enablement and strategic support with marketing and sales alignment for maximum joint ROI. The Affiliate Level is for new partners with demonstrated industry expertise. The Preferred Level is for established partners with regional presence and provides leading value-add and solution sets. The Elite Level is by invitation only and is represented by companies with significant global presence, a proven MapR track record, and companies that impact and provide industry standards.
The Converge Partners program is designed to help partners leverage production-ready converged data solutions for enabling their customers’ mission-critical, global real-time applications. Additionally, technology partners can receive product certification through detailed product evaluation and testing, which verifies interoperability with MapR. With a significantly expanded MapR ecosystem to leverage, customers can select certified products and solutions to lower project risks and realize cost savings over custom-built solutions.
Strong momentum in the past several months have continued in multiple regions with 100% growth in both the Americas and EMEA, and 140% growth in APAC. Hundreds of big data channel, system integration and technology companies with an established presence in these geographies have chosen to partner with MapR, adding breadth and depth to the MapR ecosystem.
“Earlier this year we shipped the new MapR Converged Data Platform, which serves as a single agile platform to unify data and provide the flexibility to easily adapt to emerging technologies and changing business conditions,” said Geneva Lake, vice president, worldwide alliances, MapR Technologies. “The industry recognizes that we provide a highly differentiated data platform and we have built up this worldwide alliance program to help our partners drive new revenue and accelerate big data deployments worldwide.”
The MapR Converged Data Platform is uniquely built from the ground up to integrate file, database and event streaming data in a single platform for storage, processing and analysis. The Platform ensures production success with an architecture designed specifically for business-critical applications, seamless data access, and the ability to run in real-time both operational and analytical processing and applications reliably on one platform.
