Components of a Thriving Partner Ecosystem
The Annual Partner Kickoff and awards program are important components of the Cloudera Partner Network (CPN). CPN, launched November 2022, is designed to strengthen collaboration and solution building with our partners, and to help them guide their customers to adopt modern data strategies based on the Cloudera hybrid data platform.
We are investing more than ever in our partner ecosystem, and saw tremendous growth last year, with close to 400 partners joining our new Cloudera Partner Network. This network includes a competency based, points driven approach so that partners can clearly differentiate themselves and invest. Focusing on joint use cases is how we will win together!
Congratulations to each of this year’s Partner of the Year award recipients. Thank you for a tremendous year, and we look forward to even more success together this year!
