Business technology major Oracle said it added more than 2,600 partners to Oracle PartnerNetwork Cloud Program since its launch in February 2016.
Oracle said Cloud resell revenue from partners increased 105 percent year over year.
OPN also announced the Oracle Cloud Excellence Implementer Program.
“Oracle continues to deliver the programs and enablement resources that help our partners to grow and thrive in the cloud,” said Dave Donatelli, executive vice president, Cloud Business Group, Oracle. “Through Oracle PartnerNetwork, we work with partners to provide solutions and services needed to take advantage of Oracle’s cloud platform.”
Nearly half of all partners in the OPN program today implement, develop and sell in the cloud with Oracle.
Oracle claims that it has the broad collection of PaaS and IaaS services for IT developers, as well as programs, resources, and commercial models that meet both immediate business needs and longer-term growth objectives.
From startups to enterprise application providers, partners are realizing the benefits of migrating their applications and customers to Oracle Cloud Platform and Infrastructure, including 1Check, Manhattan Associates, Wexlog and many others.
“We are excited to collaborate with Oracle in bringing cloud solutions to companies of all sizes,” said Jeff Cashman, senior vice president of business development, Manhattan Associates.
Oracle is investing in new services and capabilities with Docker and Kubernetes, which has captured the attention of cloud application developers at Dial-Once, RECVUE, and SuiteBox among others.
Through Oracle Cloud Marketplace, partners can expand the visibility of their applications to 425,000+ Oracle customers and partners. PS Technology, Stromasys and Symantec are a few of the 4,000+ cloud application providers leveraging Oracle programs and go to market resources to grow their business and expand into new markets.
The Oracle Cloud MSP Program, unveiled at OpenWorld 2016, added Fujitsu America Inc., which announced a new MSP relationship to provide Oracle Cloud to its customers in the Americas.
“There is a breadth of opportunity for all partners – regardless of partner type – to expand your solution portfolios with Oracle Cloud,” said Penny Philpot, group vice president of worldwide channels and alliances, Oracle.
Cloud Excellence Implementer Program (CEI) helps customers make a smooth transition to the cloud through Oracle implementation partners. The program recognizes and rewards those partners who have invested in building their Oracle Cloud expertise.
The CEI program is available to OPN members now and will initially focus on implementations for Oracle’s SaaS Cloud services.
Oracle CEI program rewards partners that demonstrate expertise, a successful track record, and superior customer satisfaction in delivering high-quality Oracle Software as a Service (SaaS) Cloud implementations to customers.
“The CEI program was designed to recognize and support those partners that not only offer a marked expertise in Oracle Cloud solutions, but also a commitment to excellence in ensuring successful customer experiences and outcomes throughout the entire implementation process,” said Camillo Speroni, Vice President of Worldwide Strategic Alliances, Oracle.
Through the OPN Solutions Catalog, customers are now able to engage with partner firms that best align to their specific project needs. Access to this information helps customers minimize implementation risk, quickly adopt new cloud functionality, and continuously expand their Oracle Cloud footprint.
