Thank you in advance for participating in the VMware Partner Relationship Survey! Feedback from past surveys has influenced many improvements to our partner program, including:
Profitability and Predictability of Benefits
- Profitability: Improved profitability through increased discounts
- Lead Generation: We’re providing cross-sell/up-sell leads to our Partners to increase new product sales by our Partners at the time of sales engagement with customers for support renewals.
