New Partners Reflect Growing Demand for Jenkins-Powered Continuous Delivery Around the World; New Portal Designed to Drive Partner Profitability and Customer Success
SAN JOSE, Calif. – January 28, 2016 – CloudBees, Inc., the enterprise Jenkins company and continuous delivery (CD) leader, today announced rapid growth in its partner community in Q4 of 2015. The growth of the reselling and services partner ecosystem in Q4 alone was nearly 50 percent and facilitates ready-access to more Jenkins-related services and CloudBees products in all global regions. To support the growing partner community, the company launched a new partner portal to provide greater access to CloudBees resources.
New reseller, services and training partners were brought on-board during the final three months of 2015. New additions included two global services partners, two partners in the U.S. federal government sector, four partners for expanded coverage in the Asia/Pacific region and five new partners in Canada and the U.S.
The new CloudBees partner portal, launched this month, provides the CloudBees partner community with a single destination to uncover and manage new opportunities and expand DevOps and enterprise-scale Jenkins business. Exclusively for CloudBees partners, the portal delivers marketing, sales and technical content and tools to help partners architect the best enterprise Jenkins solution for customers, help partners manage opportunities and facilitate the closing of sales.
“The expansion of our partner ecosystem is a direct result of the global and growing demands for enterprise Jenkins solutions,” said Durga Sammeta, senior director, global alliance and channels, CloudBees. “Customers are seeking enterprise Jenkins solutions and trusted advisors who can help them identify and implement continuous delivery in their transformation to a DevOps culture.
