Getting A DPACK Partner Account
DPACK Partner Account:
DPACK solved the industry wide problem of consumers of technology not being able to provide adequate requirements to suppliers of technology without a massive investment in man hours, disruptive interviewing, or costly assessments.
Partner Accounts in DPACK allow you to interact with the consumers of IT that you do business with through DPACK to share and have a common understanding of project requirements. This also serves as historical record of decision making that can be recalled or passed from pre-sales engagements, to implementation, and even support.
In DPACK, the End User or the IT professional always owns their data. They can choose to share this data with you in a collaborative way to help expedite system design, decision making, and reduce risk.
As a partner you will have the option and the ability to invite them into the DPACK program and create their account. Activity in DPACK is between you and your End User.
There are two major parties to participation in DPACK and each has their own profile.
Consumers of Technology:
Those that are IT professionals and use/support software and infrastructure to support business activities each day.
