To meet an accelerated demand for its solutions, Centreon wants to extend its network of partners specialised in European secure IT Monitoring.

 

Paris, Thursday, April 8, 2021 – Centreon, a trusted partner in IT operational excellence, launches a vast partner recruitment campaign. The acceleration of digital transformation and remote work has led to a strong increase in demand for IT monitoring. In order to meet this demand, Centreon intends to partner with the best professionals by recruiting new partners, specialists in reselling and integrating monitoring solutions to enterprise clients. Centreon is targeting France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the UK and Ireland.

Accelerating demand

Gartner estimates that the global IT operations market, including monitoring, will be worth $50 billion by the end of 2024, growing at more than 10% annually.

With a cumulative growth of 143.1% over the period 2016-2019 (1) and an average of 35% over the same period, Centreon strengthened its position as a European growth champion, despite a difficult pandemic market (2).

89% (3) of CIOs place monitoring in their list of priorities for investment, but 59% of them are also dissatisfied with legacy solutions.

This demand for acceleration and replacement of obsolete solutions in companies and organisations worldwide is the opportunity for partners to join Centreon’s new partner program: ON.

Need for certified partners

Top of mind for CIOs (3), IT monitoring has become a crucial element for the proper functioning of IT, security and performance of businesses and the public sector.

The efficient and secure implementation of these monitoring solutions must be carried out by professionals certified by Centreon who will be the guarantors of the use according to the good practices of cybersecurity and computer hygiene stated by the ANSSI.

“We are looking for VARs (Value Added Resellers) who want to resell and implement our solution at customers’ sites following best practices”, explains Marc-Antoine Hostier, Chief Revenue Officer at Centreon, “We want to welcome 50 new partners in Western Europe, as well as we want to extend our recruitment campaign to North America and Asia in the next weeks.”

Centreon ON: a generous partner program

Centreon renewed its partner program, Centreon ON, at the end of last year (4). This program is one of the most generous partner programs on the market, both in terms of market potential, partner discounts, incentives, and marketing support and budget. By design, ON limits channel conflicts with a 100% channel-first approach, managed through territory management and deal registration in a Partner Relationship Management (PRM) platform. The ON program also provides Centreon partners with the same level of training, certification and support as Centreon’s own sales and technical forces. As a result, ON partners have access to the same support and training tools as those employed internally, through an e-learning system for onboarding, training and certification on the solutions and the program. To do this, each Centreon certified partner is supported by a dedicated Partner Manager.
