Confluent Announces Accelerate with Confluent, a Revamped and Services-Led Partner Program for System Integrators

Confluent, Inc. (NASDAQ:CFLT), the data streaming pioneer, today announced Accelerate with Confluent: a program for systems integrators (SIs) that prioritises excellence in Confluent Professional Services to empower partners to deliver comprehensive data streaming solutions.

With Confluent, customers can accelerate their real-time data streaming journey across any industry and use case, helping teams be more efficient and focus more on productivity. However, Confluent SI partners don’t always have the resources they need to bring data streaming to their applications and end users without direct support from Confluent. Business and technology leads at these companies encounter a wide range of challenges with building and bringing to market new data streaming capabilities that offer their customers the best experience for working with real-time data.

To help more organisations harness the power of data streaming, Accelerate with Confluent redefines the dynamics of Confluent’s partnership model. Accelerate with Confluent is designed to meet the ever-increasing requirements of customers by building, expanding, and innovating through the support of SIs. Partners will be able to choose from multiple avenues for Partner engagement with Professional Services. These paths include:

● Co-Delivery – Enables customers to harness the collective expertise of both Confluent and certified partners. By integrating specific and complementary skills, this collaborative approach ensures the delivery of holistic solutions.
● Strategic Staffing – Further enhances the customer experience by incorporating subject matter experts from Confluent partners into ongoing engagements. This not only expands the delivery team, but also has the potential to significantly increase sprint velocity, driving accelerated project timelines.
● Crafting Long-Term Data Strategies – Partner Led – Understanding a customer’s overall data tech stack is crucial for devising long-term data strategies. Confluent partners don’t just provide a service. They help businesses establish a robust framework for data streaming maturity, ensuring sustained success in the ever-evolving data landscape.

To address this ongoing challenge, Accelerate with Confluent includes new capabilities to drive higher efficiency with Confluent’s SI ecosystem.

“Creating a real-time central nervous system has become an imperative for every organisation in order to compete and offer differentiated experiences,” said Paul Mac Farland, SVP of Partner and Innovation Ecosystem, Confluent. “Accelerate with Confluent reimagines our SI partner program, enabling our mutual customers to get to their business outcomes faster. Now, partners can more easily expedite repeatability, profitability, go-to-market efforts, and new service offerings, meeting customer demands.”

By leveraging Confluent’s industry-leading data streaming platform alongside Confluent partner solutions, companies can develop modern, real-time generative AI applications. With Confluent’s Data Streaming for AI initiative and several partnerships with technology providers, public cloud partners and services partners, scaling next-generation AI applications with a shared source of real-time operational and analytical data has never been easier.
