Annual Guide Recognizes Couchbase PartnerEngage as One of the Channel’s Top Partner Programs
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 02, 2018 -- Couchbase, creator of the world’s first Engagement Database, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Couchbase a 5-Star rating in its 2018 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program Guide rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.
To determine the 2018 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
The Couchbase PartnerEngage program offers participants the opportunity to join a growing ecosystem of more than 150 partners and receive the tools, training and support needed to meet the increasing data needs and complexity of a growing $40 billion database market. PartnerEngage offers two levels of participation, Registered and Advanced, and allows participants to build a differentiated solution around the emerging Engagement Database market, supporting customer-facing applications and business critical data at scale and in real time.
“Finding the right technology vendor to partner with can be a daunting task, given the vast array of choices now available to solution providers,” said Robert Faletra, Executive Chairman of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field and find the best fit, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and providing crucial insight into their strengths and benefits. We are pleased to present our 2018 PPG list, recognizing the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today.”
“Following the successful launch of our PartnerEngage program earlier this year, this award reaffirms our dedication to providing our partners with more integrated solutions and the skills they need in their path toward digital transformation. Our growing partner ecosystem plays a key role in the expansion of Couchbase’s Engagement Database,” said Matt McDonough, Vice President of Business Development at Couchbase.
The 2018 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
