Get Ready for VMware Partner Connect

VMware is launching our next-generation partner program in early 2020. The new VMware Partner Connect gives you a single, consistent program experience, offering you the power of flexibility and choice as you align your business models to meet your customers’ most pressing needs. With the advent of this new program, certain competency requirements will be aligned to paths across resell, cloud, and services. For you to maximize your success when the program launches, attaining a Master Services Competency (MSC) is key as it will move you up the new program tiering structure toward Principal Partner level—the highest recognition within Partner Connect.

Achieving an MSC can benefit your business both today and upon launch of the new program. Make sure you’re on the path to success with these key resources:

  1. Tune in to this 2112 podcast, where Worldwide Channel Chief Jenni Flinders outlines VMware’s channel transformation.
