Ted Dunn is the Program Manager of the VMware Solution Exchange. In this post, Ted will provide an overview of the VMware Solution Exchange and share insider tips on how to get the most out of the platform.
The VMware Technology Alliance Partner team is excited to introduce our partners and customers to our new and improved Solution Exchange (VSX) Marketplace! The new marketplace is much more than just an update. We’ve completely restructured the entire marketplace and moved to a new, more flexible platform.
What’s the same?
The new VSX Marketplace still gives Technology Alliance Partners the ability to showcase their products and solutions using a self-service portal. Customers can still research, review and download products and solutions and view their compatibility with VMware Products.
The new VSX Marketplace platform improves the look and feel of the site, and makes the marketplace easier, faster, more reliable and more effective for our partners and customers. We’ve integrated with the MyVMware single-sign in to make logging in to the marketplace more convenient, updated the home page and improved the keyword and filter search for products.
The administration menu has been completely rebuilt to improve the experience of adding and editing listings. Because of the new platform we will be able to add new and improved reporting and user management and continue to add to and update the marketplace like never before.
We’ve migrated all of the content from the old marketplace to the new, and we’re working with our partners to update each and every listing. We’re implementing tools to keep content fresh and accurate so that visitors to the site know that they are finding the latest and greatest partner solutions. We’ll be reaching out with more information as we continue to add tools and resources to the marketplace in the future.
What do I do now?
As a Technology Alliance Partner we’re asking for you to help us make sure the content in the marketplace is as up-to-date as possible. Please log in to your account and check that all listings are current and accurate, and check your company profile to make sure it is correct as well.
For more information about how to interact with the VSX Marketplace please see the information and resources on the Partners page and, as always, the VSX Alliance Team is available to help with any questions about the VSX Marketplace and to provide assistance if any issues may arise.
