CRN Exclusive: Puppet Launches New Partner Portal As Channel Push Heats Up

Puppet is a “critical enabling technology” for digital transformation at end customers, said Erik Melander, executive vice president for solutions at San Ramon, Calif.-based Kovarus, a Puppet Platinum partner. “It’s a tool that customers can use to become more like a software company.”


Kovarus’ Melander said the shift in the sales model to boost channel-driven deals is a welcome move, and said the new partner portal and deal registration should “reduce friction” for partners.

“It just reaffirms they are really looking to make the partner program as easy as possible for partners like us,” he told CRN.
