The managed service provider Claranet is the new technology partner of the Meet Magento Association (MMA). As a gold partner of MMA, Claranet will in future support the customers of Magento, the provider of the open source and enterprise online shop software of the same name, collaborating directly with the international Magento community and its local Magento ecosystems. The MMA is a non-profit organisation and official partner of Magento. As an international platform for Magento eCommerce software and its community, the MMA represents the users and system integrators of Magento and hosts the annual “Meet Magento” conference in Germany. As part of an international series of events in over 40 countries, the conference presents general eCommerce trends and current Magento services, bringing together the most important developers, system integrators and agencies.
"Having Claranet as new Gold Technology Partner at MMA is a big enrichment for the local and global Magento ecosystem. It's a pleasure to welcome a leading hosting provider with such an understanding and support for the vibrant community. With joint activities and strategies, Claranet will be rooted even more in the ecosystem",
says Jan Monosov, Partner Manager at Meet Magento Association.
In close collaboration with agencies and developers, the managed service provider has developed a modern container-based application stack specifically for Magento, which can be individually configured and extended. It can be provided and operated on the public clouds of AWS, the Google Cloud or Microsoft Azure as well as in Claranet's own cloud. According to Claranet, one objective of the new gold partnership is to strengthen the position of the innovative Claranet services in the Magento system integrator and distributor scene.
Olaf Fischer, Managing Director of Claranet Germany, welcomes the new gold partnership, explaining:
“Following on from our commitment as a gold sponsor of the Meet Magento Conference in June 2018, this new technology partnership with MMA is the next logical step. Further joint campaigns, including directly addressing Magento distributors and system integrators are planned. We have Magento expertise from projects and the close collaboration with agencies and we look forward to working even more closely with the Magento community as an official technology partner.”
The gold technology partnership with MMA, whose partner Magento was taken over by Adobe Systems in June 2018, extends the Claranet's international network and supports the managed cloud provider in intensifying its collaboration with Magento agencies and users.
