During the TIBCO Analytics Forum (TAF) 2021, our Chief Analytics Officer, Michael O’Connell announced the exciting launch of the TIBCO Partner Validation Program. This program is another way TIBCO is empowering partners to grow their business within our thriving partner program.

The Partner Validation Program is the next progression of the Partner Solution Showcase. Partners who meet the criteria of the Validation Program will have the opportunity to leverage additional benefits, enabling them to accelerate the growth of their business alongside TIBCO—while delivering innovative solutions that solve our customers’ most pressing challenges. 

O’Connell states, “The Validation program is the latest addition to our TIBCO Partner Program benefits and shows our commitment to investing in our partner ecosystem. By validating partner solutions, we want our joint customers to confidently deploy solutions our partners have built and validated with TIBCO.”

What is the Partner Validation Program?

The TIBCO Partner Validation Program reinforces our commitment to invest in partners who invest in us. To be eligible for the Partner Validation Program, partners must submit their solution through a multi-step process—covering technology, marketing, and co-selling requirements, which highlight innovation, expert knowledge, and TIBCO’s badge of approval. Customers can confidently deploy these solutions knowing they are now not only powered by TIBCO but also validated by TIBCO.

The new program provides partners additional benefits such as special listings, marketing resources, marketing development funds, and discounted rates. Most importantly, partners with a validated solution can access the TIBCO product team for solution review and feedback. The validation program will be open to all TIBCO partners with a solution built on, complementary to, or integrated with TIBCO, starting in July.

Tony Beller, Senior Vice President, WW Partner Ecosystem and OEM Sales at TIBCO, states, “At TIBCO, Customer Excellence is one of our core values, and we are proud to recognize our partners who go above and beyond to innovate with TIBCO products, creating solutions that drive Customer Excellence. With the TIBCO Partner Validation Program, we aim to provide our customers peace of mind when deploying partner solutions. It’s a natural next step of the Partner Solution Showcase, and I am happy to see that our partner ecosystem echoes our sentiments about the value of the program to them and our joint customers.”

Partners in Action

Several TIBCO partners are part of the initial launch, including ARRIA, Bahwan Cybertek, Butos, Genware Computer Systems, and Systemation. 

Systemation, a long-time TIBCO partner, developed a framework for TIBCO EBX software to reduce development time and lower costs while simplifying long-term maintenance and support. Jaap Franse, Founder and CEO of Systemation, says, “For us, joining the TIBCO Partner Validation Program is the ultimate appreciation and recognition of a strong and long-lasting relationship between TIBCO and our company. It reflects the investment TIBCO is making in its partner network—supporting innovation and ultimately driving customer excellence.”

Another partner, Butos, built its smart.GDPR platform on TIBCO Data Management to provide a single solution to govern, manage, and consume all shared data assets. Andreas Emlinger, CEO of Butos, states, “With this Validation Program, we expect a much wider reach and increased awareness of our smart products as well as increased sales outside of our home market.”

Partners who meet the criteria of the Validation Program will have the opportunity to accelerate the growth of their business alongside TIBCO—while delivering innovative solutions that solve our customers’ most pressing challenges.  Click To Tweet
