REDWOOD SHORES, CA:  Oracle unveils new OPN (Oracle Partner Program) that offers more opportunities for partners to transform and accelerate their business with Oracle Cloud. The latest cloud program qualifies into four main tiers to showcase their Oracle Cloud expertise, vertical market offerings, and success with customers.

The four tiers of OPN Cloud designations include: Cloud Standard, Cloud Select, Cloud Premier and Cloud Elite. Cloud Standard partners will typically focus on a specialized solution within one of Oracle’s key product pillars to develop skills and expertise in Oracle Cloud Services. These partners will be eligible for strategic go-to-market engagement opportunities, account managing, online training, boot camps, logo and branding.

Cloud Select partners will drive the Oracle Cloud Business by simply focusing on developing and selling technology or services. Oracle opens world benefit opportunities such as discounted and free cloud learning subscription. The partners under this designation will be eligible to purchase discounted development and access demo along with training environments.

Cloud Premier Partners will consist of big investors and specifically focus on driving Oracle Cloud solutions by integrating Cloud specializations or applications with multiple customer references. The key benefits include: strategic go-to-market engagement, partner account manager and marketing manager, and discounted learning subscription opportunities.

Cloud Elite will include highly skilled partners who have attained their initial status by driving Oracle Cloud Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR). These partners focus on cloud business growth by creating true competitive advantage, achieving multiple specializations, advanced specializations, fixed scope repeatable use case offerings and successful implementations measured by customer advocacy. They are also eligible for extra benefits bonus packs and cloud pillar designations.

“OPN offers the most comprehensive portfolio of cloud programs available today; we can now equip our highly experienced partners with the tools they need to successfully move their customers to modern business models. This vast partner community includes tens of thousands of implementation experts with transferable skills who can help our customers navigate their transition to the cloud.” says Shawn Price, Senior VP, Oracle Cloud.
