Oracle recently modified the criteria for obtaining Distribution Rights for Oracle Exadata Database Machine Knowledge Zone products and for Exalogic Elastic Cloud Knowledge Zone products.  Partners will no longer be required to be specialized in these products or in their underlying product sets in order to attain Distribution Rights.  There are, however, competency criteria that partners must meet, and partners must apply for the respective Distribution Rights.  Please note there are no changes to the criteria to become EXADATA or EXALOGIC Specialized.

Call to Action: Review the criteria available on the Sell tab of the Oracle Exadata Database Machine Knowledge Zone and the Exalogic Elastic Cloud Knowledge Zone, meet the requirements and apply.
