Boomi VP of Global Business Development David Tavolaro said that measured by partner enthusiasm, the Partner Summit at Boomi World 18 was a major success. He also emphasized that the partner program has continued to evolve successfully since its April inception.
Boomi has revamped their program for ISVs, integrators and other developers, to encourage them to build more solutions on top of and connecting to Boomi, and to validate it on third party software. They also want partners to work with the whole Boomi stack, not just its original integration functionality.
Cohesity has doubled the amount of dollars allocated to their partner program, with new perks like rebates for sales to very large customers and formalized and expanded MDF. They have also established a model for service providers within the program, which provides mechanisms like consumption-based pricing suited to this business model.
Square has built a big business around providing support to microsellers who were too small to interest credit card companies, or who found their services too expensive. While this market is still their core, they have moved upmarket as well, with larger sellers, assisted by strategic partnerships with companies like SAP. The new channel program is designed to support partners in this upmarket transition.
