The Cloud28+ member spotlight pages, were revealed at the CloudFest conference in Germany and will be available from April. For the first time allow channel companies to publish their own news and updates, as well as search options and services, on the catalogue. HPE said that this will offer partners the opportunity to increase sales and revenue, as they will be able to build a “strong visual identity” on the platform.
More than 750 HPE partners are already part of the Cloud28+ community, HPE claimed, a catalogue of 26,000 cloud and hybrid IT services launched by the company in 2015.
HPE VP of service providers and Cloud28+ worldwide Xavier Poisson: “HPE is a partnership-first business. The new Cloud28+ spotlight pages demonstrate this, by offering partners new routes to market and increased visibility.
“Cloud28+ has always been focused on creating a rich and collaborative ecosystem, and now we’re further extending that benefit to partners by giving them a chance to do the same with customers under their own banners.”
Alongside the announcement of member spotlight pages, HPE also teased further upcoming enhancements to the Cloud28+ platform. These will include better management tools, social media integrations and individualised analytics. It will feature compatibility for multi-vendor and multi-component solutions, with IoT cited as a particular scenario where this would be desirable.
