On behalf of the Oracle PartnerNetwork, I would like to welcome Global Knowledge Software (GKS) partners to Oracle. Working together, we can become more effective in the marketplace.
The combination of GKS, Oracle Tutor, and Oracle's learning management software iLearning and eLearning is intended to provide customers a comprehensive, end-to-end enterprise solution for creating and deploying business process documentation, interactive system training, and just-in-time support available within the applications. This comprehensive solution for end-user training and process documentation - that can support all Oracle and non-Oracle applications - speeds the time to productivity for application end users.
We are committed to supporting your success, business continuity, and the satisfaction of your customers. Our goal is to provide you with the knowledge, tools, strategies and support essential for your business with the GKS products, as well as growth opportunities around Oracle User Productivity Kit (UPK) and Tutor, Oracle Applications, and other solution areas in Oracle's broad portfolio.
An important step to our mutual success is your smooth transition into Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), our world-class global partner program. I would like to take this opportunity to communicate an important sequence of events:
||GKS products are now available on the following Oracle Price Lists:
- Oracle E-Business Suite Applications Price List
- PeopleSoft Applications Price List
- JD Edwards Applications Price List
- Siebel Applications Price List
|| In the next few weeks, your company should receive a letter from Oracle notifying you of our intent to terminate your current GKS agreement. This does not reflect a desire to end our relationship; it signifies the beginning of our new partnership.
||If your company currently has a valid OPN agreement, we are looking forward to continuing our working relationship. Review the Your Next Steps section to understand what happens next and where to access resources.
||If your company is not a member of OPN, your next step is to join and take advantage of the many valuable benefits available to Oracle partners. Joining is simple, refer to this step-by-step guide for easy enrollment.
||Whether you are new to OPN or an existing member, you can accelerate the migration of your GKS business to OPN now, even before receiving the abovementioned letter. By quickly migrating, you can secure business continuity and jumpstart success in doing business with Oracle. For example, you will be able to focus on Oracle's product roadmap, resources to train and equip your staff, avenues for growth, and revenue opportunities through Oracle's Open Market Model. Please contact your Oracle representative or the OPN Partner Business Center.
I look forward to accelerated growth together and ongoing customer success.
