- Customer and partner benefits
- Membership benefits summary | Solution Provider and Corporate Reseller track benefits | ISV Program track benefits
With the availability of a 3-tiered and refined partner program in EMEA, the new partner accreditations range from Red Hat® Ready through Red Hat Advanced Business Partner and up to the new Red Hat Premier Business Partner membership level.
|Partner level||Red Hat Solution Provider and Corporate Reseller|
|Premier level||The Premier level is for partners who have a strategic relationship with Red Hat and who provide the highest contribution to Red Hat and the Red Hat Partner ecosystem. Premier Business Partners have the highest level of visibility at Red Hat and in the marketplace.|
|Advanced level||Partners who have reached the Advanced membership level have consistently met sales targets and expectations as defined in this program guide. The Advanced Business Partner has access to advanced sales benefits, such as deal registration and higher NAT tiers, along with other benefits.|
|Ready level||The Ready level membership enables partners to grow their open source practices while building Red Hat Enterprise Linux® and JBoss® competency. At this membership level, Ready Business Partners have access to a variety of marketing collateral, tools, and software.|
The new EMEA partner program is designed to meet the needs of both the channel in EMEA and expectations from customers in the region.
From a customer perspective, the 3 membership levels greatly simplify the identification of Red Hat partners with certified expertise and a track record of success.
In addition to the 3 levels of membership, the 2 partner specializations—Infrastructure and Middleware—let customers easily identify a Red Hat partner with the subject matter expertise they need.
The 3 membership levels give partners a clear path on which to upgrade their membership accreditations to the next higher level. Red Hat's partner program is based on benefits and requirements for each level of membership. As partners demonstrate more commitment, contribution, and competence, more benefits are made available, and higher membership accreditation can be achieved.
With the 3-tiered program structure, partners can more gradually add skills and business contributions as their Red Hat- or JBoss-related business grows.
The tables below summarize the new benefits of each membership level:
- Solution Provider track benefits
- Coroporate Reseller track benefits
- ISV program track benefits
The Solution Provider and Corporate Reseller program track is structured to provide the following 3 levels of membership:
- Red Hat Ready Partner: Entry level into the partner program or for partners with an opportunity driven Red Hat business.
- Red Hat Advanced Business Partners: Qualified partners with Red Hat-certified expertise and a track record with successful Red Hat or JBoss projects.
- Red Hat Premier Business Partners: Expert-level business partners with a significant focus on Red Hat- or JBoss-related projects. Red Hat Premier Business Partners are well trained and highly committed to working closely with Red Hat on business opportunities. They lead with top-level services and customer satisfaction.
