Intel Unveils Partner Alliance to Unify the Channel

Intel has announced the official launch of the new Intel Partner Alliance, going live Jan. 11, 2021.

The alliance unifies longstanding Intel partner programs, such as Intel Technology Provider, Intel IOT Solutions Alliance and Intel Cloud Insider, into a single, streamlined offering for the full partner ecosystem.

The new program is designed to enhance Intel’s relationship with valued partners and together accelerate new market opportunities in an increasingly data-centric world.

What It Will Look Like

The launch is anchored by a redesigned portal that will incorporate Intel Partner University and Intel Solutions Marketplace into one seamless platform, making it easier for partners to find the content they need, skill up on key technologies and collaborate for new opportunities.

These changes are driven by Intel’s commitment to partners to unify the Intel Partner Programs.

The key elements of the new Intel Partner Alliance include the following.

New partner types

Expansion of the types of partner roles Intel engages with to increase collaboration across the ecosystem. New roles include field programmable gate array design services, cloud service provider, independent software vendor, distributor, manufacturer, solution provider, original equipment manufacturer and service integrator.

Intel Partner University

Deeper training for Intel’s partners to grow their expertise on a variety of topics, solutions and specialties.

Personalized Experiences

More personalized content for customers through artificial intelligence for rewards, training or products.

Benefits

Expansion of the rewards system to simplify and maximize program benefits and rewards across all partner levels and roles.

Intel Solutions Marketplace

New opportunities for partner connections and matchmaking, lead generation and management, and storefront monitoring.

Why It’s Important

The new Intel Partner Alliance will focus on solutions and connecting Intel’s partners with each other and new customers. It will provide an improved customer experience by streamlining multiple programs and infrastructures into a more integrated, flexible and customized partner program framework. As the industry evolves and businesses adapt, Intel is focused on unifying partners into one powerful platform that enables collaboration and innovation.

Starting Jan. 11, partners can log in to the new Intel Portal to activate their accounts and explore the updated interface and new offerings.

Existing partners are invited to a webcast to celebrate the launch and to hear from leaders how Intel is supporting them in 2021. Partners can attend the webcast on Jan. 12 from 8 to 9 a.m. PST or from 7 to 8 p.m. PST. .
