Reflections on One-Year Anniversary with Informatica

Rodney ForemanOne year ago I joined this great company and since then I have logged almost a quarter of a million miles in the air visiting and listening to our partners share their thoughts with me.   It has been a very exciting year and the Informatica partner team has achieved many milestones together while establishing a competitive channel program that delivers incremental revenue results for the company. Partners across the ecosystem have embraced these changes and have performed remarkably during the past year.

Here are some of the accomplishments we’ve achieved together:

  • New Channel Program Announced and Implemented
  • Implemented a two-tier partner program through recruitment of the industry’s top value-added distributors (VADs) in all major regions
  • Announced the Solution Advantage Program
  • Introduced new channel leadership in EMEA, N. America and for Global System Integrators (GSIs)
  • Implemented Informatica Partner Authorization and Certification programs
  • Over 100 new top resell partners signed over the past year
  • Progressed our partner relationships with AWS, Google, Tableau, and Microsoft
  • Significant growth in both revenue and the number of transactions by reseller partners

I am very proud of the many accomplishments of the team over the past year and from all of the Informatica partners.  We still have a lot of work to do,  but I am very excited about the momentum we have going into the second half of 2017 and into 2018.  Thanks to all of our partners for your continued support of Informatica!  We are absolutely thrilled to have each of you as a partner and look forward to joint success in the future.

I am very excited and proud to be a part of the Informatica team!   I can’t wait to see what the next year brings.   -Rodney
