MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq: SNPS) today announced it is expanding the Software Integrity Group's partner program under the leadership of Tom Herrmann, the newly appointed vice president of channels and alliances. The program is chartered with expanding customer access points to the company's industry-leading application security products and services by expanding its global channel partner network and streamlining its existing partner program to better serve the channel. Herrmann, who has built and led partner programs at Tanium, VMware, and Oracle, joined Synopsys in February.
"We're excited to accelerate the expansion of our partner program with a seasoned veteran like Tom Herrmann leading the effort," said Jason Schmitt, general manager of the Synopsys Software Integrity Group. "With the right commitment and leadership, a well-tuned channel partner program will be instrumental in scaling our business. While our business unit has traditionally focused more on direct sales – especially in North America and Europe – we have had a lot of early success in building meaningful partner relationships and customer wins across all regions. We've reached a point where more aggressive channel investment and strategy provide a faster path to our growth goals."
The Synopsys partner network currently consists of key systems integrators, consulting firms, solution providers, cloud providers, and technology partners.
The Synopsys Software Integrity Group is on pace to double partner revenue in 2021 while expanding the network of high-value partnerships and restructuring back-end operations and programs to facilitate further growth in 2022. The investment in new leadership and the decision to prioritize partner programs has been well-received.
"Our partnership with Synopsys and access to their broad portfolio of industry-leading application security solutions presents tremendous opportunity in a high-demand market," said Tom Holt, vice president of sales for InterVision Systems Technologies. "The level of collaboration and support we get from Synopsys makes it easy for us to create value and solve problems for our customers."
"Partners are a key part of a successful sales strategy in our industry," said Tom Herrmann, vice president of Channels and Alliances for the Synopsys Software Integrity Group, "and we look forward to expanding our partner relationships going forward to scale our business to the next level.
