The marketplace will act as a centralised, self-service portal to help simplify the process of evaluating and selecting business solutions.
It will form a new way to find solutions for the private and public cloud and offers partners and developers – who link in some way to VMware’s portfolio of products – a one-stop location to market and sell their solutions to potential customers.
It hopes to provide a familiar social media experience by allowing customers to utilize search tools, explore multimedia content and directly engage with partners and developers to help them find the right solutions for their businesses.
“With the VMware Solution Exchange, we are offering our robust network of over 700 partners in the MENA region a new and centralised marketplace to promote their solutions and directly connect with customers to help expedite the sales process,” said Sam Tayan, MD at VMware MENA.
“For customers in the region, our goal is to empower them to quickly and easily find the resources they need to make purchasing decisions to accelerate their journey to the cloud, while also helping our technology partners deliver and manage joint solutions in a single, self-service location,” Tayan added.
