New Oracle PartnerNetwork Program puts focus on the cloud

To accelerate customers’ digital transformation in the cloud, Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) has launched the Oracle Cloud Excellence Implementer (CEI) program.

The offering recognizes and rewards partners that continually demonstrate expertise, a successful track record, and superior customer satisfaction in delivering Oracle Software as a Service (SaaS) Cloud implementations to customers.

Oracle said the implementation phase – including investment in the support and services our customers need – is particularly critical to its customer success and satisfaction.

The CEI program was developed to provide customers with a clear, objective, and informative view of partner qualifications for implementing Oracle SaaS solutions.

Through the OPN Solutions Catalog, customers are now able to identify and engage with partner firms that best align to their specific project needs.

Access to this information helps customers minimize implementation risk, quickly adopt new cloud functionality, and continuously expand their Oracle Cloud footprint.

Partners may qualify for CEI status with individual Oracle cloud service modules within defined geographies, and must meet a rigorous set of entry and ongoing engagement criteria in order to remain in the program.

Firms that achieve CEI status will be able to further differentiate themselves in the market and receive the highest level of benefits and deeper engagement with Oracle.

“The cloud continues to represent a tremendous opportunity not only for our customers, but also for our partner community,” said Camillo Speroni, vice president of worldwide strategic alliances at Oracle.

The CEI program officially launched at Oracle OpenWorld during the OPN Central Keynote, where Oracle executives outlined Oracle’s cloud direction and strategy.

The partner application process opened on June 28, 2017. A full list of CEI partners can be found on the Oracle PartnerNetwork portal.
