Last October Oracle announced a new entry point into the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) called the Cloud Registered level. This was a promotion to provide immediate opportunities for new cloud partners to begin their journey and grow their business with the Oracle Cloud. As of June 1, 2016 this promotional period has ended and Oracle will no longer be accepting new applications for this level.
But No Worries
Existing partners that joined the Cloud Registered level will still be able to leverage the benefits Cloud Registered offers such as Oracle branding; sales and marketing assets; the ability to earn money by reselling Oracle Cloud PaaS and IaaS products and referring all Oracle Cloud products; and access to training - for the remainder of the first year term of your OPN membership. In addition, partners may opt to upgrade their OPN membership by joining OPN at the Silver or Gold levels - either now or at the end of the first year their Cloud Registered level is up.
And as this saying goes “when one door shuts another door opens.” You may recall that on February 2, 2016 Oracle formally announced the OPN Cloud program – opening the door to your continued cloud journey with Oracle. This is an exciting program that allows partners to grow and differentiate their Oracle Cloud business. Oracle remains committed to supporting partner business growth in the Cloud and providing all of its valued OPN members the tools, technology and expertise needed to succeed in the Cloud. We invite you to explore these new beginnings and realize new opportunities with Oracle.
