CloudOne Launches Affiliate Reseller Program for Global Expansion Initiative

New Program Allows In-Country Resellers to Provide CloudOne's IBM Rational Solutions Faster and More Cost Effectively

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Jun 4, 2012) - IBM Innovate -- CloudOne (, the leader in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) for IBM Rational software development, today announced it is launching the CloudOne Affiliate Reseller Program. The new program aims to accelerate the global footprint for CloudOne and its worldwide partner network. By enlisting in-country business partners around the world, CloudOne can provide clients with the ability to work with local sellers, consultants and data centers to maximize the cloud experience in a global market.

"CloudOne will extend its reach into emerging markets by aligning our best practices and cloud services with local partners in their own geographies," said James Pietrocarlo, VP, Business Development, CloudOne.

The challenge of localization, cultural and business requirements have traditionally made it difficult to work directly with these international customers. "This scenario is best managed with established partners," said Mr. Pietrocarlo. "With these worldwide partners we can extend our business relationships to resell CloudOne solutions."

The CloudOne Affiliate partnership relationship provides:

  • An extension of an affiliate's portfolio to include Cloud Hosting and SaaS (Rational) solutions
  • A way to easily provide clients with all the tools needed to migrate to the cloud, leveraging the power of CloudOne to provide a stable, flexible and reliable cloud development environment while the affiliate fulfills the SaaS license in-country
  • Quick and secure provisioning to allow affiliate clients the time they need to focus on their software development projects
