The Channel is a critical part of our strategy moving forward as it will help us:
Primary monetization is through reselling GitLab licenses and services. Resellers can be a service partner too (often known as a Solution Provider).
Primary monetization is through the sale of services. This can be a one-time implementation, ongoing support or advisory, managed services, or outsourcing. Services partners will resell GitLab services, deliver services on behalf of GitLab or deliver GitLab certified services. Services partners can be a reseller partner too (often known as a Solution Provider).
To incentivize working with our Channel partners, 'Channel Neutral' means that we will not reduce $ value to individual sellers even if the Channel business reduces total iACV to GitLab (via disocunts or rebates). More information can be found on the compensation page.
