System integrator, Agreon, has attained CA Enterprise Solution Partner (ESP) status. The tag recognises high-end technical and consulting skills. Agreon managing director, Brian Brannigan, said the certification validated the services it had been providing CA customers for the past five years.
"ESP has traditionally been for larger integrators but CA has measured the subject matter on expertise and customer satisfaction as opposed to judging on our company size," he said. "We didn't have to do anything traditional. I think CA just started recognising partners that have been delivering."
Agreon will be granted better access to training programs, accreditations, rebates, marketing funds and enterprise products. CA currently has 15 ESP partners focused on market sectors such as security, storage, network or server management.
"Agreon specialises in the security area and can provide a total solution to customers, which we may not be able to do," CA director of channel and alliances, Michael Bosnar, said. "We are interested in service providers with a focus on specific technologies. We can help them grow while addressing customer needs."
