This new global initiative aligns the channel sales and delivery models across the two companies through a single framework to build partner competencies, elevate partner differentiation and drive partner profitability. Joint Cisco and Citrix channel partners can use the Partner Accelerator to capitalize on the fast-growing customer demand for enterprise mobility, desktop virtualization and device choice by delivering the Cisco Virtualization Experience Infrastructure (VXI) with Citrix XenDesktop® solution .

Highlights:

  • The Cisco and Citrix Partner Accelerator tools help channel partners engage in consultative sales, expand their data center, desktop virtualization and collaboration practices, and develop repeatable solutions.
  • It provides tools that better enable resellers who are partners of both companies to build a Cisco VXI with Citrix XenDesktop practice and deliver complete solutions that combine virtual desktops, voice and video for built on optimized data center, network and collaboration infrastructure.
  • The Cisco and Citrix Partner Accelerator also makes available sales and marketing resources, which reduce the partners’ time-to-market and allow partners to compress customer sales and implementation cycles. Additional benefits that enhance partner profitability include proof-of-concept and assessment funding.

The Cisco and Citrix Partner Accelerator also provides differentiation in the form of unique branding for those partners that complete the required investments.
