AvePoint Joins the CloudBlue Go-To-Market Fast Track Program
July 7, 2021 – Irvine, Calif. – CloudBlue, a leading cloud technology provider, and a business unit of Ingram Micro Cloud, announced today that AvePoint (NASDAQ: AVPT), the largest data management independent software vendor for Microsoft 365, has officially joined the CloudBlue Go-To-Market (GTM) Fast-Track program. The CloudBlue Fast-Track program digitizes the process of targeted portfolio development and GTM enablement and, through this, accelerates the go-to-market launch for select vendors and cloud service providers. As part of the program, AvePoint will leverage the hyperscale platform to launch and manage an omni-product, and multi-channel marketplace to accelerate its indirect business, a key priority for the now publicly traded company.
The CloudBlue GTM Fast-Track program also digitizes the end-to-end partner acquisition process, reducing cost and time-to-market for IP owners and accelerating time-to-revenue for Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) with targeted campaign sprints. AvePoint will utilize CloudBlue’s hyperconnected ecosystem to expand its collaborative efforts with key service providers and telco’s, which will enable AvePoint to increase the adoption of its collaboration security platform at a rapid pace.
“We designed the GTM Fast-Track Program to empower vendors to scale their channel businesses in half the time it would take on their own,” said Tarik Faouzi, senior vice president of CloudBlue. “We are excited to help AvePoint grow its partner network so more end-users can take advantage of their digital collaboration security platform, which is vital for the evolving hybrid-workplace.”
Participating in the CloudBlue GTM Fast-Track program will accelerate AvePoint’s growth into new and existing markets across the diverse CloudBlue footprint of over 80,000 partners globally. Additionally, the program assists with strategy, channel mapping, business development, multi-vendor value proposition execution, and sales enablement.
“Modern partners and end-customers evaluate, procure, and consume technology in a variety of ways to meet their business-critical needs and financial goals today,” said Jason Beal, senior vice president of Global Channel and Partner Ecosystems. “As members of the CloudBlue GTM Fast-Track program, our technology is quickly available to both partners and end-users around the world in a frictionless and seamless manner.”
