Red Hat said the company's partner enablement initiatives are designed to make accreditations available to partners 24 x 7 without them having to leave their homes or offices. The vendor said Red Hat OPEN includes several features that aim to enhance partner skills, provide expanded accreditation options, and offer a one-stop repository for technical assets.
Rachel Cassidy, vice president, Global Partner Enablement at Red Hat said: "Red Hat OPEN combines tools, content and best practices to arm our channel partners with the role-based expertise they need to sell and deliver Red Hat solutions. The programme was built in collaboration with our partners in an effort to build a truly effective platform to help them be successful in building service practices to enhance their solution offerings available to their current and target customer base."
As part of Red Hat OPEN, the Red Hat Partner Center will provide partners with 24 x 7 access to technical information and training resources, enabling partners to enhance their skills anytime, anywhere.
According to the company, Red Hat OPEN includes role-specific, self-paced training accreditations for sales, sales engineers, and delivery engineers.
