Hewlett Packard Enterprise has outlined a channel strategy that rewards partners for acquiring expertise in specific solution areas. For HPE, that represents a shift away from thinking in terms of bundles of products for which partners are rewarded for developing expertise. So far, HPE has identified 11 competencies, the first six of which are expected to be in place soon. For HPE and its partners, these competencies are tied to higher-margin solution areas, and partners will be rewarded for bringing HPE products and services into these types of deployment scenarios. While most partners are already organized around practices that reflect how organizations consume IT services, vendors in the channel appear finally to be moving to align their channel programs to how IT is actually used by the organizations that solution providers and vendors alike ultimately serve. Here's a look at the 11 competencies that HPE has mapped out as part of its new partner strategy; the first six on the list are slated to be in place by Nov. 1.
