Intel announced the launch of its streamlined artificial intelligence (AI) benefits within Intel Partner Alliance. With the debut of these benefits, Intel will better serve ecosystem partners by helping independent software vendor (ISV), original equipment and device manufacturer, and system integration (SI) partners connect with new opportunities, drive innovation and accelerate business growth.
“There are a lot of business opportunities for channel partners to deliver the technology needed for business transformation, and Intel is providing the platform and solutions that partners need to be successful. Through our latest investment in AI and enablement tools, we have a highly engaged enterprise ecosystem of industry leading ISVs, SIs and enterprise end users who have optimized hundreds of solutions on Intel architecture and deployed them on AWS, GCP and Azure, and with our OEM partners. Leveraging our AI benefits and resources will enable our partners to build their AI practices and scale business faster,” says John Kalvin, Intel vice president in the Sales, Marketing and Communications Group and general manager of Intel Global Partners & Support.
