Commvault Given 5-Star Rating in CRN
-- Annual guide recognizes the best channel partner programs in the market –
-- Second major recognition recognizes Commvault’s commitment to its partners --
Tinton Falls, NJ, April 20, 2016 – Commvault, a global leader in enterprise data protection and information management, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given Commvault a 5-Star rating in its 2016 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products 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.
“Solution providers have more choices than ever before when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor with the right technologies and the right channel approach can mean the difference between successful adoption of a new technology or business model and an awkward, unnecessarily difficult integration,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings recognize the best channel programs available in the market today and serve as a valuable resource for solution providers looking for the right fit. We congratulate Commvault on their inclusion in this distinguished group of vendors that have raised the bar for partner engagement and enablement.”
The Channel Company’s Research team has developed a methodology through which vendors are assessed based on information provided in their completed 2016 Partner Program Guide applications. To determine the 2016 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication. The 5-Star rating is bestowed on programs whose overall rating is among the elite.
“We are honored to receive a 5-Star rating from CRN and strongly believe this recognition is indicative of our best in class, widely acclaimed data protection and information management solutions and how we are making it easy for alliance, technology, and other channel partners to bundle Commvault solutions with their offerings and services to monetize the opportunity and drive value for customers,” said Ralph Nimergood, Vice President of Worldwide Channels & Alliances. “While there are companies that talk about being partner centric – we are committed to this effort and the 5-Star rating underscores our success building this world class program.”
Commvault’s growth drivers include data management opportunities with flash, hyper-converged, software defined and cloud and having the right enablement and Commvault engagement to monetize the services opportunity associated with the software sale. The company is also delivering a committed eco-system of solution partners where the “power of three” (Commvault, alliance partner and solution provider) are differentiated together in the market, leading to more opportunity.
Commvault’s 5-Star rating in the 2016 Partner Program Guide marks the second major recognition for Commvault by The Channel Company this year. In February, The Channel Company named Nimergood to its exclusive list of the 2016 Most Influential Channel Chiefs.
