At Google Cloud, partnering is a key part of how we serve our customers, so we are committed to building an ecosystem of innovation and services that can drive digital transformation for customers.
To that end, we are extremely excited about the launch of our new Google Cloud Partner Advantage Program. One thing that really stands out about our partner ecosystem is how incredibly passionate and engaged our partners are with our products and solutions, and the levels of technical and differentiated business know-how that they are building. With the launch of Partner Advantage, we are growing our support for these partners and continuing to expand our Partner Specialization initiative.
Specializations allow our partners to differentiate their business to the market, build knowledge and experience in specific, high-priority product and solutions areas, like application development, machine learning or cloud migration. At Next ‘19, we announced three additional Specialization areas: Marketing Analytics, IoT and Security Training, and acknowledged several partners that achieved this highest level of designation.
Today, we’re excited to announce the 90-plus partners that successfully achieved specializations in the first half of 2019. To achieve a specialization, these partners demonstrated compelling customer success stories, a consistent practice, and passed a rigorous capability assessment.
It’s exciting to see these partners growing their businesses with us, and even more exciting to see these partners driving real business value for our customers with Google Cloud.
