  • PartnerNetwork 2022 Leadership Outlook

  • PartnerNetwork Leadership Outlook for 2022 from Kevin Davenport - Director, Global Technology Partnerships

    "When you're finished changing, you're finished."  - Ben Franklin  
    According to a 2022 Accenture survey, 76% of CEOs think the current business model will be unrecognizable in five years. This rapid state of change in how our customers create brand “stickiness” and adoption through customized vertical, and persona solutions; simplify transaction through subscription consumption with Marketplaces; and rapidly innovate with cloud services and SaaS delivery models are creating unprecedented opportunities for how we serve and deliver value with our Technology and Digital Partners. 

    Our customers trust us, and now more than ever are counting on us to help them deliver value to their business. We are focused and committed to offering the most comprehensive, flexible, and scalable co-marketing, co-selling, co-innovation, and co-investment programs to meet that objective.
    We look forward to an awesome 2022 of change and growth together!

  • PartnerNetwork Leadership Outlook for 2022 from Rob Ponsonby, Global OEM Partner Program Manager

    As we look ahead at 2022, I cannot help but feel excited for what this year has in store. The last couple of years have presented fundamental challenges to the industrial ecosystem but 2021 in particular highlighted the creativity of our Partners, the power of collaboration, and value of our PartnerNetwork Ecosystem in meeting those challenges. In 2022 we aim to build on this momentum for our OEM Partner community. Our Global Market Access organization has invested in building out our Enablement and Marketing Teams as well as creating my position to focus exclusively on our OEM Partners across the Globe. This year our focus is to truly enable our OEM Partner Community. Beginning in March, we will begin opening access to our Rockwell Automation University (RAU) and Seismic platforms for OEM Partners. These platforms will provide resources centered around both commercial and technical training to equip OEM Partners with the knowledge and skills to differentiate themselves from the competition. As we rollout this new functionality to our OEM Partner community, I encourage you to provide feedback on the OEM Partner Program so that we can continue to provide the right framework to support your growth.
    Here's to a year of collaboration and mutual success.
