Annual guide recognizes the channel’s top partner programs
Melville, NY April 2, 2017 – erwin, Inc., the data governance company, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has given erwin a 5-Star rating in its 2018 Partner Program Guide. This annual guide is the definitive listing of partner programs from technology vendors that provide products and services 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.
To determine the 2018 5-Star ratings, The Channel Company’s research team assessed each vendor’s partner program based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.
The erwin Partner Program is a revenue-based program offering valuable benefits, rewards and support. Currently the partner program has more than 300 global channel partners. Data governance is a growing market, and erwin provides the only integrated software platform combining data governance with enterprise architecture, business process and data modeling.
“Finding the right technology vendor to partner with can be a daunting task, given the vast array of choices now available to solution providers,” said Robert Faletra, Executive Chairman of The Channel Company. “CRN’s Partner Program Guide and 5-Star ratings help them narrow the field and find the best fit, identifying the most rewarding partner programs and providing crucial insight into their strengths and benefits. We are pleased to present our 2018 PPG list, recognizing the strongest and most successful partner programs in the channel today.”
“Data has been erwin’s sole business for a very long time. Over the last two years we’ve become a stand-alone company, completed several acquisitions and invested heavily in R&D to transform our market-leading data modeling software into the ultimate data governance platform,” said David Casillo, Sr. Vice President, Global Channels and Inside Sales for erwin. “Given today’s business and technology challenges – from data breaches to the dawn of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)– it’s an exciting time for erwin and our channel partners. The data governance market will continue to accelerate for resellers, consultants, system integrators, service providers and others delivering value in the channel.”
The 2018 Partner Program Guide will be featured in the April issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/ppg.
