Recognizing top achievements: Oracle Advanced Reseller

When the top sports teams play, we watch.  When renowned scientists make new discoveries, we listen.  When Oracle resellers drive revenue and align their business with Oracle's strategic imperatives, we pay attention.

Oracle recently launched the Oracle Advanced Reseller program designed to recognize and reward these top resellers. Oracle Advanced Resellers have proven local expertise, meeting stringent criteria that are valued by customers and recognized by Oracle.  These strategic OPN members can leverage a new Oracle Advanced Reseller logo. Additionally, they receive priority access to benefits, including local business engagement, access to demonstration environments and equipment, visibility both within Oracle and externally through the Solutions Catalog, and eligibility to participate in a number of local and global reseller programs.

Top performers deserve recognition for their efforts. Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) members that resell multiple products and meet the rigorous Oracle Advanced Reseller requirements are encouraged to apply for this distinctive designation.

Support Question? Immediate response!

In the support case, it usually has to go fast - as it is well if you have already resolved fundamental questions in advance. For all partners who wish to learn more about support topics, about the use of the SI number, about My Oracle Support, the exact sequence of support processes and service request edits or simply about the Oracle Support Portfolio, it is advisable to visit the Oracle Partner Days. There Oracle Support in the exhibition area is represented with an information booth! Our team will be there individually on general and very specific questions, such as:

- What are my rights with which partner SI number? Supportstand mit Ruth Müller-Wohlfahrt
- How do I open or escalate a service request?
- What should I do when a service request is processed in the U.S.?
- What exactly is Platinum Support?
- Can we use Platinum Support as a partner?
- How can I use "My Oracle Support" efficiently?

Incidentally: The participation at the Oracle Partner Day is also worthwhile, if you are already a Support Professional. As always attracts a varied program of training opportunities, information, networking and entertainment!
