One Identity’s first EMEA Distribution Advisory Board (DAB)
DAB is an important step in ensuring our Distribution strategy is supporting the goals of One Identity and it provides the basis for a relevant and meaningful partnership with our valued distributors. Your opinion matters – besides us providing a strategic update on One Identity’s plans for our next financial year and giving you a heads up on the enhancements we wish to make to our channel model and partner programme, we would be eager to listen to your feedback.
The DAB event will be the launch of an ongoing initiative to ensure there is a structured forum for our distribution partners to provide feedback, discuss our engagements and gain updates to One identity’s channel plans ahead of general release. Feedback and actions taken at the DAB will be analysed further and, as appropriate, developed & integrated into our strategy or partner programme. Future update communications & events will be scheduled to provide progress reporting and allow for further feedback.

Option 1 – partner autonomy – enablement discussion.
Review and provide feedback as to your views on One Identity’s ability to provide your organisation and the partners you serve with timely, relevant, and easily understood information. Consider your training experience, how you obtain information, & how easy it is to cascade this information to your partners. Do you feel your company can operate independently? – if so why, if not be prepared to explain the challenges you face.
Option 2 – partner eco-system development.
A discussion on the evolving nature of our partners as they address the changing buying behaviour of our customers. In this session we will ask for your opinions as to whether One Identity is providing you with the support required to address your partners needs and what steps should be taken in order to expand our partner eco-system and drive partner interest & preference for One Identity.
Option 3 – improving operation excellence.
A constructive look at how we conduct our business together from an operational and process perspective - How easy is One Identity to do business with? How can we improve? Do other vendors do things better? If so, be prepared to explain how.
Option 4 – you decide.
Please submit your suggestions for a discussion on a topic you believe would be a valuable addition to the DAB event.
