Riverbed Announces Partner Program Updates
May 2017 by Emmanuelle Lamandé
Riverbed Technology announced updates to the Riverbed® Performance Partner Program during the Riverbed Partner Summit 2017 in Santa Barbara, California.
At the Partner Summit, Riverbed will showcase its solutions in three key areas and how partners can leverage them to accelerate partners’ cloud and digital strategies and solutions with end customers: Cloud Networking (with SD-WAN solution SteelConnect), End-to-End Visibility and a Service Delivery Platform (for delivery of –as-a-service offerings). Riverbed will also share its vision for addressing customers’ “Cloud First” environments and the emerging SD-WAN market by sharing use cases and mapping Riverbed solutions to the broader market and partner opportunity.
During the Partner Summit, Riverbed will unveil more partner incentives that build on the existing program benefits of joint engagement, embedded solution and services and selling across the Riverbed solution portfolio with accelerators to drive growth for partners. In addition, Riverbed will share with partners how it is investing in building a full suite of services that partners can leverage to develop their services portfolio— including SD-WAN-as-a-service, Visibility-as-a-Service, Network-as-a-Service and Branch-as-a-Service—needed to support their customers implementing and operating cloud-first strategies.
The Riverbed channel ecosystem is composed of a network of focused, dedicated and invested partners across the globe; including technology resellers, solution providers, value added distributors, system integrators and outsourcers and service providers.
