Intel Solutions Marketplace is getting a major refresh soon. Here’s your tech provider’s preview.
As you may know, Intel Solutions Marketplace is an online forum that connects Intel partners. Launched last year, the site empowers partners to discover products and solutions that can help them solve their pressing business needs.
Partner offerings on the Intel Solutions Marketplace span a wide range of technologies and applications. These include IoT, cloud, high performance computing (HPC), enthusiast PC and industrial solutions.
Literally thousands of solutions are on tap, offered by more than 1,350 partners from around the world. These partners include software developers, solution providers and services firms.
So what’s new?
This coming January, Intel Solutions Marketplace will introduce a new look and feel, add major enhancements, and offer an enhanced user experience. These changes will be part of the larger Intel Partner Alliance announced earlier this month.
Here’s some of what’s coming on the new Intel Solutions Marketplace:
> Consolidation: To make the site easier and more efficient to use, several key components will be consolidated and unified. These will include the site’s virtual storefront, partner directory and solutions catalog.
> Improved showcasing: The site will use an AI recommendation engine to showcase featured offerings.
> A more helpful directory: Partners will be featured by their role (such as distributor or manufacturer), industry (education, energy, finance, etc.), specialty groups (such as AI and cloud data), and market segment (client computing, data center, etc.).
> Filtered catalog: Search results will be filtered by technology and business needs.
> More leads: An AI recommendation engine will refer users to solutions on the main Intel.com site. Qualified users will also be able to manage their leads quickly and easily.
> Affiliated storefronts: Partners will be able to have their storefronts affiliated with Intel. Also, the system will offers partners suggestions on how they can make their storefronts more appealing – for example, with good descriptions based on search terms.
> Improved search: The site’s overall search engine has been optimized. Search results will be quick and on target.
