Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has introduced the Pro series to deliver channel partners the solutions, skills and programs to develop their teams, transform customer experiences and drive business growth.
The HPE Sales Pro Community, the extended HPE Tech Pro Community and HPE Marketing Pro Academy offer uniform channel partner tools, training, resources and support mechanisms, HPE said at HPE Global Partner Summit and Discover 2019.
HPE Sales Pro Community is a new global approach to driving sales excellence for HPE and partner sellers through effective sales communications and sales enablement initiatives.
HPE Tech Pro Community is introducing a new reward and recognition program as well as two new certifications and a full suite of continuous learning paths for technical expertise – targeting solution architects.
HPE Marketing Pro Academy is expanding its offerings through a new online Digital Marketing Partner Learning Center, and new Accreditation Program.
“HPE is demonstrating a new level of commitment and investment in our partners by extending access to the right tools and resources via the Pro series which will improve the ease of doing business with us and drive their continued growth and success,” Paul Hunter, global channel chief for Hewlett Packard Enterprise, said.
HPE Sales Pro Community provides a way for the enterprise networking company to collaborate with channel partners, a simplified and easy to understand view of training assets, and a single reward program bringing together previous regional programs.
HPE Sales Pro Community will offer an interactive and collaborative space for HPE and partner sales to communicate, and cascade prioritized news and product updates direct to sales professionals. Partners will also have seamless access to experts to support deals and secure business.
HPE Tech Pro Community helps partners and HPE technical professionals to develop and deepen their solution architecture and design skills to enable business outcomes for their customers based on the HPE portfolio.
As part of HPE Marketing Pro Academy, HPE channel partners will have access to the new HPE Digital Marketing Partner Learning Center and Accreditation Program beginning in November 2019.
HPE is also announcing the launch of the HPE Digital Marketing Partner Accreditation Program. The program, set to be available to partners beginning November 1, recognizes and acknowledges the successful completion of a structured digital marketing curriculum.
The HPE Digital Marketing Accreditation will be awarded following the completion of a curriculum of online learning courses published within the HPE Digital Marketing Partner Learning Center, plus the completion of the HPE Digital Marketing Maturity Assessment. Partner marketers will earn an accreditation badge that validates their proficiency in digital marketing.
More than 750 HPE channel partners have completed the HPE Digital Marketing Maturity Assessment following the launch in June 2018.
