We invite organizations interested in becoming a GitLab Channel Partner to APPLY NOW.
This is the primary Handbook page for prospective and existing GitLab Channel partners and is organized into the following sections: Welcome to the GitLab Channel Handbook, Channel Program Guide, Channel Partners: Working with GitLab, and Channel Partners: Developing your GitLab Practice. This services as an introduction to the GitLab Channel Program and provides links to individual sections with additional detailed information.
The GitLab Partner Program supports organizations ranging from value added resellers (VARs) to systems integrators (SIs) to managed service providers (MSPs) and beyond looking to resell or refer GitLab sales opportunities, or provide services for GitLab customers. In addition, the program empowers partners to capture value from and support the entire customer lifecycle with guidance and support for everything from pre-sales engagement through full customer adoption of GitLab.
The right product at the right time. In any given market there are only a few times when the stars align with a product that is creating and leading a category, a product that helps customers redefine what success can look like, and with a robust opportunity for an ecosystem of partners to help customers maximize their ROI in that product.
GitLab represents one of those opportunities. We are still in the early phases of capturing an estimated $40 billion dollar addressable market[^1]. A market that’s evolving from point solutions to a platform and where GitLab offers the most comprehensive offering with proven ROI that partners can monetize by accelerating customers’ successful adoption of GitLab.
From a strategic perspective, the comprehensive GitLab DevSecOps platform can be a driving force in your application modernization, digital transformation, cloud adoption, and even your security & compliance practices.
If you have browsed the GitLab Handbook before or this is your first time, we want to make your experience navigating the Channel Partner Program Handbook as easy as possible.
