Single Enterprise Sales Certification

Time to value defines success in today’s global markets. To empower our partners we streamlined time to value by delivering and optimizing a single sales certification for enterprise sellers. The new certification helps build pipeline and harness opportunities within the top IT Transformation Areas customers care about most.

The new HPE Sales Certified – Enterprise Solutions [2016] Certification focuses on consultative selling, helping you build pipeline. This course teaches partner sales reps how to have customer conversations about the things our customers care about, focusing on business outcomes, which will translate into a larger number of selling opportunities. The Transformation Areas reflect our customers’ four most important business areas today.
