Cloud database platform provider Couchbase has unveiled its new independent software vendor (ISV) partner programme, which includes expanded resources to help build and monetise modern applications.

The revamped initiative includes a new ‘Success Package’ that bundles together enhanced training options and certifications, while a new ISV Program Guide has been designed to help customers get started with Couchbase’s Capella cloud database platform.

In an announcement, Couchbase’s senior vice president of business development and strategy Matt McDonough said the programme is aiming to bolster the firm’s ISV ecosystem.

"We're dedicated to broadening our ISV partner ecosystem to deliver unmatched speed, scalability and resilience," he said.

"With new resources for ISVs to learn about Capella, teams can be empowered to get started on their application development journey knowing they're backed by easy-to-use, high-performing technology that eliminates the need for ongoing database management efforts."

Couchbase’s Capella cloud database platform is designed to help ISVs consolidate their architecture and accelerate application development, as well as reduce total cost of ownership (TCO) through its wide-ranging capabilities.

Partners can embed or bundle Capella with other solutions and applications that they offer to expand their business through the platform’s standardisation – which the firm says will help improve revenue, margins, and application time to market.

With the new ISV Partner Program, there is now a single resource for those looking to build applications with the platform, making it easier to add modern features to apps and increase differentiation.

The firm says this will enable quicker release cycles with fewer data duplication, SQL familiarity for faster ramp-up, offline-first data for always-on mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) apps, as well as high availability and automation.

"After searching the market for a cloud database platform that addresses the complexity of our customers' broad portfolio of data, Couchbase Capella was the perfect fit," said Simba Mupfunya, software architect at Netropolix.

"Capella helped centralise and consolidate our data lake and database ecosystem, allowing us to modernise our tech stack in the cloud to better serve our customers' diverse needs.

"With Capella, we're able to seamlessly deploy apps and monitor logs, all while handling a plethora of requests to ensure everything is running smoothly."
