AppDynamics is offering collaborative, joint business planning to Pioneer partners on a semi-annual basis. The company says the planning initiative will help form a solid foundation for strong channel sales relationships. The planning sessions will take place twice a year and are designed to align partners with AppDynamics' vision and goals. "This is extremely detailed business planning with each of our Pioneer partners," Asif said. "Many partners feel like if they're smaller in size, they won't get that attention, but we're going to understand what their business goals are and how AppD can play a pivotal role in getting them there."
