Accedian Builds on Momentum with Launch of its SkyLIGHT 4X Partner Program

Montreal, CANADA – June 28, 2018 Accedian, the global end-to-end network performance experts, today announced the launch of its global SkyLIGHT 4X Partner Program.  The announcement comes as Accedian continues expanding into new markets and verticals following its acquisition of Performance Vision in February 2018. The new program will enable Accedian to scale its business through a trusted ecosystem of managed service providers (MSPs), cloud service providers, system integrators (SIs) and solution providers.

Accedian’s SkyLIGHT 4X Partner Program offers an unmatched experience to help partners grow their business and increase profits through advanced engagement models.

Sergio Bea, Vice President Global Enterprise and Channels, Accedian: “We have designed our program to allow partners to disrupt the network and application performance management (N/APM) market. We do this by allowing our partners to embed our unique technology into their current offerings and/or expand their traditional resell business. Accedian offers subscription-based/software as-a-service (SaaS) business model starting with a one-month subscription. This, along with a highly profitable engagement model, increases new customer acquisition rates and drives improved bottom line.”

The 4X Partner Program is based on three partnership values: easy, flexible, profitable; and consists of four engagement tracks: 4X Champion MSP Partners, 4X Champion Partners, 4X Authorized Partners, and Referral Level. 4X Champion MSP Partners will benefit from the unique Accedian SkyLIGHT SNAP 4X Managed Service Creation methodology enabling an MSP to build profitable N/APM managed services in four weeks. All 4X partners will benefit from added-value programs notably including:

  • Deal registration
  • Market development fund focused on lead generation
  • Free training and certification
  • One free lab license
  • Marketing tools
  • Support

Through the program, Accedian’s partners will also be able to resell the complete Accedian portfolio.

“This is an exciting time for Accedian and we know how important it is to have a solid partner ecosystem in place to continue our success in the enterprise space. The launch of SkyLIGHT 4X will empower our partners, providing them with uniquely disruptive solutions that address critical trends in the IT space.” added Sergio Bea.

Commenting on the announcement, Patrick Ostiguy, CEO, Accedian said: “The launch of Accedian’s partner program represents our commitment to further expansion into the enterprise market. Building a strong partner program will be key to Accedian’s future ambitions and for it to continue to grow and scale.”
