The Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) has introduced a new program for ISVs, Oracle Cloud Platform Ready, to enable ISV partners to register and publish their Oracle Cloud-compatible applications on the Oracle Cloud Marketplace.
Citing IDC projections that, by 2018, at least half of IT spending will be cloud-based, Oracle says the program will help customers transition to the cloud while also accelerating time-to-market for partners.
Oracle Cloud Platform Ready provides OPN members at Silver level or higher the ability to create an initial application listing on Oracle Cloud Marketplace in the Platform and Infrastructure sections. Any partner application that supports an Oracle Cloud compatible operating system or technology product can run on Oracle Cloud without the need for rewrite, and at no additional cost.
To speed time-to-market, partners can request access to Oracle Cloud Specialists and other technical resources directly from the Oracle Cloud Platform Ready registration. Additionally, ISVs with an Oracle Cloud Marketplace listing are eligible for the Oracle Cloud ISV Partner of the Year award and may apply for OPN Cloud Standard program benefits, including easy access to Oracle Cloud development and test environments.
In addition to quick access to Oracle Cloud Marketplace and development resources, partners engaging in the new offering will be able to reach Oracle’s customer base, field sales, 25,000 global partners and 15 million developers through enhanced marketing and promotion efforts.
The cloud represents a major opportunity for the Oracle ISV partner community, said Dan Miller, Senior vice president of ISV, OEM and Java Sales, Oracle. Through the Oracle Cloud Marketplace, and joint initiatives such as Oracle Cloud Platform Ready, he added, ISV partners can focus more on their unique innovation, while leveraging the Oracle Cloud to expose their solutions to prospective users.
