We learned last week that our Nuxeo Galaxy Partner program had made TheVARGuy.com Open Source 50 list. Not only the Top 50, but the Top 25... a pretty cool feat considering it was the first year that we even qualified for the survey. A big thanks not only to the Nuxeo Galaxy Systems Integrators and Application Builders that helped shape the Galaxy program as it stands today, but our Nuxeo customers for engaging with our partners and working with them to deploy some of the most interesting and innovative content management applications out there.
But we're not done yet... what we've accomplished in thefirst full year of the Galaxy Program is just the beginning. Over recent weeks we have:
- Updated the Application Builder program to make it really easy for new ISVs and domain experts to sign up and get started - with very low investment cost. We provide access to Nuxeo Studio, help get you started, actively build joint go-to-market launch plans, and provide an integration-friendly ECM platform under the LGPL license agreement to let you build the right application for your vertical or horizontal speciality market. If you're an application builder and feeling unappreciated by your current ECM vendor - check out our program. We are seeking small, medium and large partners, don't need to have a strong heritage of open source - just expertise in a cool market that can help open doors jointly for us.
- Updated our Partner pages on Nuxeo.com - a big thanks to the product marketing, graphics and web teams for this hard work. We want to make it easier for customers to find the right partner for their geography and specific need. This will be an area of ongoing improvement and refinement over coming weeks
- Started looking for a full time Channel / Partner management role to keep this momentum moving forward at a fast pace.... (remember... we love the social media savvy...)
So thanks to all of our current Galaxy partners for a good year ... looking forward to the next. And don't forget to mark Nuxeo World on your calendar - meet our partners, customers and internal team in lovely Paris. Call for papers is still open, as is the opportunity for partner sponsorships.
