If you belonged to an older Intel partner program but haven’t yet activated your membership in the new Intel Partner Alliance, now’s the time to do it.
Intel Partner Alliance, formed last year, combines all of Intel’s older partner programs — including Intel Technology Provider and Intel IoT Solution Alliance — into a single, streamlined program.
If you were a member of one or more of those older partner programs, joining the new Intel Partner Alliance is quick and easy.
But if you haven’t done it yet, don’t wait. Until now, members of those older Intel partners programs have enjoyed the new Partner Alliance’s benefits. But that grace period is ending soon.
To continue enjoying the benefits of Intel Partner Alliance membership, you’ll need to activate your account by no later than this coming Sept. 30.
Don’t miss it
And what if you miss that Sept. 30 deadline? Well, you’ll lose your Intel Partner Alliance membership.
You don’t want to do that. Intel Partner Alliance can help you connect with other partners, provide innovate tech solutions, and grow your business.
Key features of Intel Partner Alliance membership include:
> Intel Solutions Marketplace: Connect with other Intel partners to discover products and solutions that can help you solve the pressing needs of your customers.
> Intel Partner University: Get trained in the latest Intel technology, including client computing, storage & memory, data center, internet of things (IoT), and FPGA. And earn badges you can use to promote your skills online.
> Intel Partner Marketing Studio: Gain access to Intel marketing campaigns, assets, digital resources and co-branding and implementation tools — all in 1 intuitive, searchable platform.
Also key to Intel Partner Alliance is a new focus on membership roles.
When you activate your membership, you’ll be added to 1 of 8 roles. That way, the site can connect you with other partners who have similar business competencies and needs.
The 8 roles are: cloud & communications; distributor; FPGA design services; independent software vendor; manufacturer; OEM; service integrator; and solution provider.
You’ll also be able to participate in 3 membership levels: member, gold and titanium. Each successive layer has increasing requirements as well as increasing benefits.
You can also join Intel Partner Alliance Specialties. These are select groups of partners that have deep expertise in a strategic technology segment. Members receive powerful Specialty benefits that can help them develop a competitive edge when supplying tech solutions.
