ORLANDO, Fla. – At Tech Data Corp.'s TechSelect Partner Conference being held here this week, the distributor made available new Cisco enablement programs for partners at all levels of experience. The Core and Boost programs are offered through Tech Data's Advanced Infrastructure Solutions (AIS) Division and are part of Momentum, Tech Data's partner enablement and education tool for Cisco partners.
These latest offerings build on Tech Data's enablement strategy for Cisco partners and follow last month's introduction of the SMARTattach Opportunity Portal, which is designed to maximize recurring revenue on service contract renewals of Cisco products.
The Core program targets newly authorized Cisco partners and is designed to facilitate a successful launch of a Cisco practice. The program offers a comprehensive training platform that includes a series of 30-minute webinars titled Cisco 101, Partnering with Cisco, CCW Platform, Programs and Promotions, and Cisco Services, according to Tech Data.
The Boost enablement program, meanwhile, is targeted at more experienced Cisco partners and includes four main topic areas: operations, sales, marketing and services. Authorized Cisco solution providers get access to consultation services, case studies, business transformation workshops, industry experts, personalized sales enablement trainings, demand generation tools and mobility applications to increase and improve staff knowledge and performance.
The recently redesigned Tech Data Cisco Dashboard is the partner's gateway to the SMARTattach Opportunity Portal, Momentum, and the new Core and Boost programs and trainings. The Cisco Dashboard also provides access to the Tech Data Cisco media library and other resources.
