VMware has kicked off the year with a blizzard of notifications for its partners, most reminding them to embrace coming changes.
Before then, VMware has also reminded partners that Q1 2020 will also see the end of its WIRE channel training resource, replaced by the fancy new Learning Zone. Another new training resource is the second release of content from the VMware Cloud Sales Institute (VCSI).

Another change will arrive on January 26th when a new VCPP Commerce Portal brings cloud providers a replacement to the Business Portal that focuses on the needs of channel organisations that run VMware-powered clouds.
VMware has teased the new portal with a collection of videos that can be found here (and one of which is embedded below).
