OPN Resell Programs to be Retired on September 30th 2016

Starting September 30th 2016, we will retire the following Resell programs:

Oracle HCM:

  • Oracle HCM: Oracle Fusion HCM Solutions
  • Oracle Taleo Cloud Service
  • Oracle HCM Cloud: Oracle Fusion HCM Cloud Service Solutions

Oracle ERP:

  • Oracle Fusion Supply Chain Management: Oracle Fusion Supply Chain Management Solutions

  • Oracle Financials: Oracle Fusion Financials Solutions

Oracle Sales:

  • Oracle Sales: Oracle Fusion CRM Solutions

Oracle Commerce:

  • Oracle ATG Commerce Suite
  • Oracle Endeca Commerce

Our recommendation for you:

The programs and some of the assets will continue to be available for 180 days (April 1st – September 30th, 2016) but we advise partners to pursue alternative programs for the products of their interest:

Why are we doing this?

  • Some of the products included in the resell programs will be retired from the Resell program portfolio -  Fusion Apps on premise solutions and Endeca Commerce solution. Thus we encourage you to pursue the Apps Cloud Resell programs which have been developed in line with Oracle’s growing portfolio of cloud products;
  • The recommended Cloud programs have new training and certification content which will better prepare the partners for business in cloud;
  • Some of the resell programs have been developed on product versions which have reached end of service life for Premier Support (Oracle ATG Commerce Suite);
  • The HCM resell programs are being transformed into a unified resell program at solution level in order to ease access to resell HCM products for partners (Oracle HCM Cloud: Oracle Fusion HCM Cloud Service Solutions, Oracle Taleo Cloud Service).
