Partner University 3.0!
As part of the festivities for VMworld, we released a great new version of Partner University. Have you seen it? If so, I hope you’re enjoying the new navigation and features that we built for you. If not, let me tell you about what you’ve been missing…
· On the Pulse: This section keeps you connected with Partner University’s offerings, minute by minute. Here you’ll find the vmLIVE webcast series, where you can get the same up-to-date training as VMware’s own sales team. You can also get real-time updates from Partner University via social media tools like Facebook and RSS feeds here.
· Build Your Skills: We’ll help you develop your professional skills, and we’ll share internal sales tools in this section of the site. Some of your favorite programs, like SolutionTrack, Tech Express, and Financial Fluency reside here.
· Learning Paths: We’ve completely rethought how to collect our offerings into a series of paths that are intuitive and useful for you. For example, you can now see our offerings organized by VMware competencies, VMware products, and job roles. We’ve also made it easier for you to find the offerings that apply toward VMware certifications, and we’ll show you the newly-designed certification site, too!
In sum, you’re going to find it faster and easier to educate yourself on VMware’s offerings, and the new self-service features will be more efficient for you. We think you’re going to love it, and we really want to hear your feedback! Please let me know what you think of the site by sending me an email at email@example.com; any ideas or suggestions that you may have are very valuable to us, as we continue to make this site an indispensable resource for the VMware Partner community.
