SAN FRANCISCO – July 23, 2020 – Harness, the industry’s first Continuous Delivery-as-a-Service™ platform, today announced the expansion of its Global Partner Program. To validate the program’s success, the company grew its strategic partnerships by 675% over 2019, with 38 new partnerships across 18 countries including AWS, Google Cloud, Cisco, HashiCorp and class-leading channel partners who will sell and service the Harness platform across the Americas and EMEA. These include AHEAD, Benchmark Corporation, Digital Architects Zurich, Econocom, Evry, Grid Dynamics, Orasi, Relevance Labs and Trace3.

This rapid growth is a testament to increasing industry demand to ship software in containers and microservices quickly, securely and without error.

In the first half of FY21, Harness:

  • Launched a new Partner Program that provides partners the opportunity to help customers simplify CD, accelerate their strategic business practices, and earn lucrative resale and co-sell incentives.
  • Delivered Partner Sales Learning Paths built on Harness internal curriculum, offered via self-service and focused on a value sales motion.
  • Was named an AWS Global Start-Up Partner and AWS Advanced Partner.

“As every business becomes a software business, just about every company on the planet faces the challenge to move fast without breaking things,” said Jyoti Bansal, CEO and co-founder, Harness. “As a platform company, a strong channel partner ecosystem is crucial to our success, yet we want to give our partners a program that adapts to their business – not the other way around. Our Partner Program allows us to lend our expertise in helping software teams ship code at the speed of modern innovation, while expanding our strategic partnerships with some of the biggest names in enterprise technology.”

“Strategic partnerships are key to our customer success objectives in the market. Our goal is to create an ecosystem of partners that can make our platform a pillar of success for every company in every industry, as evidenced by our rapid partner growth,” said Jason Eubanks, Chief Revenue Officer, Harness. “Every business now cares about deployment frequency, lead time, MTTR and change failure rate. It’s ultimately how software delivery is measured in 2020. With Harness, our partners get to impact these metrics to help their customers digitally transform, and become elite performers within their industries.”

With a focus on accelerating modern software delivery, Harness is rolling out the following partner resources for availability in the second half of FY21:

  • A training and certification program delivered through Harness University that enables partners to deliver a lifecycle of services across the entire Harness platform.
  • Invitation to sponsor { unscripted} – the industry’s first CI/CD conference to promote best practices of simple and scalable software delivery.
