Today we are happy to announce the launch of our global partner program.

Our slogan is “Partners First” with an emphasis on putting every partner’s success first. The new program includes comprehensive training and certification by Lucidworks, plus extensive practice with our Fusion platform from real-world projects to ensure the highest-quality implementations for customers across all industries.

“Commvault recognized Lucidworks’ innovative AI, machine learning, and cognitive search features very early on, which is why we are excited to be an early adopter and a Platinum Partner,” said Brian Brockway, Vice President and CTO at Commvault. “This technology partnership will help extend on our leading vision and commitment around data protection with integrated powerful tools that give our joint customers valuable AI-driven insights from their data. The Lucidworks Partner Program will enable our field teams and joint channel partners to collaborate more seamlessly in the acceleration of our joint business opportunities.”

By partnering with us, vendors help form a global network of reliable specialists for customers to rely on to bring the power of the Fusion platform to their organizations. The new program provides the structure to equip customers worldwide with the benefits of the our platform, ensuring a complementary fit with our partners.

“Our focus on partners is key to our strategy to bring the power of machine learning and AI to our customers,” said Will Hayes, CEO of Lucidworks. “With this launch, we are committing to customizing success for each partner. This allows our company and our partners to innovate together, blend our unique capabilities, and reach a broader range of organizations looking for operationalized AI.”

Our program also includes OEM partners looking to create their own solutions with embedded Lucidworks technology on a broader SaaS basis or as part of a managed service cloud platform. Additionally, consulting partners who are already a company’s preferred integration vendor, can generate new revenue as system integrators and trusted advisors.
