Splunk Inc, the data platform major for security and observability, announced Splunk Partnerverse program enhancements and underscored its commitment to accelerating partner success during its Global Partner Summit (GPS) at .conf22. This is Splunk’s 13th annual user conference. GPS aims to provide Splunk partners with the tools and knowledge to sell, build, manage and advise with Splunk solutions as well as how to align and take advantage of the Partnerverse program. The new Partnerverse enhancements aim to help Splunk’s 2,400+ partners expand and differentiate their offerings.
Enhancements include access to the Splunk Cloud Sandbox, a dedicated, and non-production Splunk Cloud Platform environment. For a duration of 12 months, eligible partners can access a 50GB, single tenant, cloud stack environment to learn about Splunk cloud products, build and test solutions, and demonstrate their solutions on Splunk Cloud to existing and new customers. Splunk also released a new online Solutions Catalog where partners can showcase their expertise and Splunk-based offerings and services to attract and connect with potential customers.
In addition, Splunk launched a new Funded Partner Training benefit as part of its Partnerverse program to help Splunk partners build solution competencies and drive enablement. Each eligible partner will receive two coupons for Splunk Enterprise Certified Architect and/or the Splunk Cloud Administration course. These trainings help prepare partners for certifications that validate an individual’s skills and knowledge of data management and system configuration for data collection and ingestion in a Splunk Cloud Platform or Splunk Enterprise environment. Eligible partners will continue to have access to a 50 percent discount on all individual instructor-led and self-paced Splunk training.
The company also announced it will work with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to create a new Customer Immersion Experience Center in its Splunk office in London.
