EnterpriseDB, the enterprise Postgres company, is expanding its worldwide partner program and adding resources for partners.
The new program is called GlobalConnect and features pricing incentives, plus a completely refreshed partner portal that is more efficient for handling deal registrations, referrals, lead distribution, training, and collateral, along with a news feed customized by region.
EnterpriseDB (EDB) has also added partner account executives in each worldwide region, while standardizing the program across regions.
“Over its 30-year history, demand for the Postgres database has never been hotter. We’re investing in our partners so together we can more effectively deliver on the worldwide demand for Postgres,” said Ed Boyajian, president and CEO of EnterpriseDB. “This build out of our program will allow us to better capitalize on the skills of our partners so that they are a more integrated part of our EDB selling organization.”
Existing EDB partners will be transitioned to GlobalConnect by year-end. Partners will receive increasing levels of compensation and discounts based on the activity in each transaction.
Also, partners can be certified to deliver level 1 and 2 customer support on behalf of EDB and receive compensation for delivering those services.
Additionally, EnterpriseDB is actively recruiting new partners worldwide with the initial focus in the U.S. and core regions in Europe, given the sizeable Postgres demand in those markets.
EDB’s best candidates for the GlobalConnect partner program are resellers looking for new opportunities as their customers seek to transition to Postgres, as well as those with open source practices, database expertise, and capabilities to deliver technical services.
