Cloud data integration vendor Talend has launched a cloud accreditation program that measures partners' in-depth training, completion of successful customer projects and demonstrated market expertise.
The accreditation includes training for Talend Cloud, a platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) that enables customers to collect, govern, transform, and share data. Participating partners can earn either the “trained,” “skilled,” or “expert” cloud accreditation levels, which customers can take into consideration when selecting a partner to help them achieve their business objectives.
So far, Servian is the only Australian partner to have achieved any of the new accreditation, being "cloud trained".
“The accreditation program differentiates partners who can deliver excellence and successful business outcomes around the Talend platform," Helen Larcos, A/NZ channel alliances manager at Talend said.
"This program is the result of an increasing number of partners focused on the requirement for Talend expertise to distinguish their service offerings, increase their profitability and take advantage of the ever-increasing volumes of data."
Talend's VP of Alliances, Rolf Heimes, said that the the program will help customers identify the right partners to work with in their cloud projects.
"This accreditation program rewards our partners with a valuable differentiator that showcases the skill set required to support any given job for our customers," he said.
