Oracle Advanced Reseller – New Program Available

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.

For more information, review the Oracle Advanced Reseller Overview or go to > Partner with Oracle > Get Started > Get Differentiated > Advanced Reseller.
