Program Delivers New Channel-Friendly Benefits and Tools to Increase Profitability for Adaptiva Partners

SEATTLE, WA – Aug. 25, 2016 – Adaptiva, the market leader in smart scaling systems management, today announced exciting updates to its Global Channel Partner Program, which empower partners to increase their profitability when offering Adaptiva products to enterprises around the world. The program now offers three distinct categories of partnership – Gold, Silver, and Bronze – which deliver distinct joint go-to-market programs and benefits to partners at each level. Members of the channel program will receive refreshed, streamlined, and simplified discounts and tools, including a new partner web portal, to support their sales process. Top partners already benefiting from the program include leading solutions providers such as HP Enterprise, Avanade, Accenture, Dimension Data and Fujitsu.

Gartner predicts that 50 percent of enterprises will start Windows 10 deployments by January 2017. This demand is a key factor that has contributed to our 165% increase in annual OneSite product sales revenues in the first half of 2016,” said Jim Souders, COO and channel chief for Adaptiva. “We are refreshing our channel program to give our partners the opportunity to capitalize on this surge in interest around accelerating Windows 10 deployments with the OneSite peer-to-peer content distribution engine. We are confident that our partners will be pleased with the new opportunities for increased sales and co-marketing success that we have laid out in this update.”

Adaptiva’s own survey of more than 300 IT pros also reveals 64% of companies are planning to migrate to Windows 10 within the next year and 83% are using Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr) to perform this update. According to Microsoft, ConfigMgr is used by 90,000 customers worldwide to deploy software on over 125 million devices across every major vertical from finance to retail. Adaptiva enables enterprises to massively simplify their ConfigMgr infrastructure by eliminating the need for distribution points, speeding the controlled delivery of content and reducing overall total cost of ownership.

By rewarding members at three levels—Gold, Silver, and Bronze, the new partner program can accommodate a diverse range of technology and solution providers. Partners are increasingly rewarded at each level while receiving hands-on sales, marketing, and 24/7 technical support. The program is built around Adaptiva’s exclusive suite of systems management products, which provides IT operations with the fastest way to securely distribute content across their networks including:

  • Adaptiva OneSite™, an award-winning, peer-to-peer content distribution system for rapid enterprise software distribution and management.
  • Client Health™, an endpoint security engine for speeding device security health checks, troubleshooting, and remediation.
  • Green Planet™, an add-on tool for energy-efficient power management and anytime software patching.

Benefits of the program include all of the necessary tools to leverage Adaptiva’s technology and advance their own solutions, such as: product certification, marketing collateral, assistance with direct customer engagement activities, and sales and technical training.

“Our mission is to transform IT operations, through the development of solutions and products that make the job of an administrator easier,” said Matt Tinney, president of Windows Management Experts (WME). “Strengthening our relationship with Adaptiva through this partner program builds out our arsenal of recommended technology resources, particularly around Windows 10 deployments, and accelerates the way we service customers.”
