The Cloud MSP program is aimed at partners who, according to Oracle, have demonstrated cloud infrastructure management features or end-user systems and services, such as cloud consulting and customer migration.

Oracle also offers the Cloud Excellence Implementer (CEI) program, which recognizes partners who have cloud implementation practices.

As with most channels, Oracle PartnerNetwork`s benefits increase incrementally with each level of bottom-up program. According to Oracle, the benefits for the ladders are: On Oracle`s letter that ejected us from the OPN... It`s hanging from my desk in a frame. It is an honorary distinction for all our customers.
