Advantages to members include no program fees and financial rewards for software license revenue

The attraction for the extended business member is having access to the SAP BusinessObjects technology, sharing in the financial rewards with license opportunities they uncover, and being backed by the strength and reputation of DFT.

Decision First Technologies (DFT), the six-time SAP BusinessObjects Solution Provider Partner of the Year, announced today that it has launched the SAP Extended Business Program to its industry network enabling organizations to join the program and actively support the SAP BusinessObjects portfolio as part of their solutions. Members of the SAP Extended Business Program work directly with a SAP channel partner like DFT, to promote, implement or develop solutions designed for use with SAP software. Program members benefit from access to SAP tools, resources and training to stay up-to-date on SAP software and technology and enhance their ability to provide solutions and services.

As a Gold Channel Partner and Master VAR, companies will work closely with DFT to create a go-to-market strategy and capture additional market opportunities together. “The Extended Business Program is strategic to our business moving forward. It will allow us to provide industry specific expertise and expand our coverage geographically,” said Taylor Courtnay, co-founder and vice president of sales. “The attraction for the extended business member is having access to the SAP BusinessObjects technology, sharing in the financial rewards with license opportunities they uncover, and being backed by the strength and reputation of DFT. Other advantages of the program include no fees and the opportunity to deliver SAP BusinessObjects professional services.”

Convergence Consulting Group (CCG) is a full service business intelligence consulting firm based in Florida and has been working with SAP BusinessObjects since 2005. CCG recently joined DFT as an extended business member and have become an early success story for the program. After only two months, CCG sold their first SAP BusinessObjects software deal. “Through this program, CCG is able to leverage our position as a boutique BI services firm to serve as our Clients trusted advisor and implementation partner and still offer the same benefits of a large SAP reseller,” said Brian Rimes, partner and director of business development. “This partnership with DFT enables us to provide our clients with the most value for their SAP investment and our people with access to the resources necessary to maintain their high competencies on the SAP BO platform. We have already worked together to meet the needs of a CCG client with the SAP BO Edge Premium solution, creating a win-win-win solution.”

The SAP Extended Business program offers a set of benefits rewarding organizations for active participation and success with SAP solutions. Some of the general program benefits include access to the SAP channel partner portal site, sales, presales and consultant training, and marketing tools and collateral.
