Diamanti Awarded Top 5-Star Rating in CRN’s 2019 Partner Program Guide

April 1, 2019

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 01, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Diamanti, creators of the first bare-metal platform purpose-built for containerized applications announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has awarded Diamanti a 5-Star rating in its 2019 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide identifies the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today, offered by the top technology suppliers for IT products and services. The 5-Star rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

To determine the 2019 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each supplier’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support, and communication.

Diamanti offers the container industry’s leading partner program, with benefits that include:

· Commitment: 100% channel oriented;

· Marketing: Co-marketing, lead sharing, co-branded materials and inside sales support;

· Incentives: Partners benefit from not-for-resale discounted units and SPIFFs;

· Deal protection: Resellers can register their opportunities to maximize margin potential;

· Enablement: Sales and technical web-based training curriculums.

“With new technologies emerging every year, evaluating which IT vendors to partner with grows increasingly more complex for solution providers,” said Bob Skelley, CEO, The Channel Company. “We are proud the CRN Partner Program Guide has become the trusted resource to identify the most rewarding partner programs and provides crucial insight into their strengths and benefits for the channel.”

“We are very excited about CRN’s recognition of our channel program,” said Bill Cordero, VP of WW Channels, Diamanti. “The Diamanti Edge Reseller Program is designed for partner success. Diamanti is tapping the explosive growth of container technology with the industry’s first bare-metal platform purpose-built for containerized applications — and Diamanti resellers can ride the wave of customer demand.”

The 2019 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
