Santa Clara, Calif. – April 3, 2019 – Couchbase, Inc. today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Couchbase 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.
The Couchbase PartnerEngage program offers participants the opportunity to join a growing ecosystem of more than 250 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 NoSQL database market, supporting customer-facing applications and business critical data at scale and in real time.
“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 first launched our PartnerEngage program to work more closely with our partners and equip them with the training and resources they need to better meet the needs of our shared customers,” said Matt McDonough, Vice President of Business Development at Couchbase. “We recently celebrated the one-year anniversary of our PartnerEngage program, and we’re thrilled to be recognized with CRN’s 5-star rating for the second year in a row.”
