eZ Systems, an open source content management software company, has introduced updates to its Partner Network. Changes include an updated training and certification program for partners, a clearer distinction between the different partner levels, and a commitment from Gold Partners around the subscription model. eZ's role is to enable partners to deliver the solutions by backing them up with training, certification, consulting, and support and maintenance. A trained and certified partner can now reach the second of four partner levels immediately to become a Silver Partner. To reach the Gold partner level, companies also commit to delivering all of their projects based on eZ Publish Premium.
