At Puppet, the "timing is right" for a major push to boost its engagement with channel partners, said John Schwan, vice president of global partner sales and programs at the Portland, Ore.-based company. Puppet is a key enabling technology for DevOps and IT infrastructure automation, among other things, and "the market is in hyper-growth right now," Schwan said in an interview with CRN.
"Puppet has a unique solution in the market, and a unique opportunity for partners," said Schwan. "It's a highly service-driven opportunity for partners to engage with."
