Partners – Google for Work
Google just introduced the updated partner program for “Google for Work” which will be rolled out in early 2015:
In order to meet the needs of customers moving to the cloud, and a new generation of partners, we’re updating our partner program. Our existing programs across Apps, Chrome, Cloud Platform, Maps and Search will fuse into one Google for Work and Education Partner Program. The new program allows partners to better sell, service and innovate across the Google for Work and Education suite of products and platforms.

I am really looking forward to the new partner model. It seems to simplify the today’s rather complex partner structure for Google Apps, Google Maps, Google Cloud and Google Education. The future program will differentiate between three tracks: sales, services and technology and just 2 program tiers.
Being a passionate Google Apps for Work evangelist, I hope this will innervate the Google cloud business internationally and especially in Germany.
So, I am excited for the future and look forward to the details of the program.
