HP Discovery Labs

The process of becoming an HP Moonshot partner is fast-tracked and thorough. First, we gather information about your company and your interest in HP Moonshot to understand if there is an opportunity to realize differentiated value that will resonate with your target customers and open up new revenue opportunities for your company. If you are an ISV, we gather additional information to determine if the software application is designed to scale and can take advantage of the features of the HP Moonshot System. Then we look at the alignment of your solutions to our target market segments. If in our evaluation we determine that we will both receive value from further investments, we align our technical resources to allow you to do an initial test and discover some of the advantages that may be realized.

With your documented results, your application will be featured as one of the key business solutions for the HP Moonshot System. HP sales teams can then match their customer needs with your solution value – and when there is a match, they reach out to you – and help advance the opportunity to mutual revenue recognition.

Once you have reviewed the introductory videos in the Overview section and determined your interest in the program, follow the detailed steps below to join the Moonshot Partner Program. You can download a copy of the registration request form (.PDF, 91KB), allowing you to gather appropriate information prior to completing the form on line.

Step 1: Register

Ready to get started?
  • Register now for the HP Moonshot Partner Program and tell us more about your company, solution and interest in HP Moonshot.
  • Your registration will be reviewed and we will respond to your request via email within 10 days with next steps.

Step 2: Engage

Where there is alignment to address target customer needs, and where an opportunity to jointly invest creates a win/win, you will receive an email that contains a Confidential Disclosure Agreement (CDA) that must be signed and returned for us to continue through the engagement process.

Once the CDA is returned, partners welcomed into the program are given access to technical resources, additional training and the HP Moonshot Partner Program insignia.

A one-hour technical discussion will be scheduled to determine the path forward- with milestones and timelines.

As an approved partner, you will have access to a web link, titled “HP Moonshot Partner Program Insignia” in the top right navigation side bar of this page. Once you review and agree to the license terms, the insignia is downloadable for your use.

If we are unable to jointly invest to create a win/win, at this time, you will receive an email outlining on-line resources that will allow you to pursue your interest in HP Moonshot as an AllianceOne member.

Step 3: Test

As an approved ISV you begin to test your application on the HP Moonshot System in the HP Discovery Lab. You will be required to agree and sign the Discovery Lab Agreement (.DOC, 43KB) before proceeding. Once your test plan has been defined and approved, you will be granted access to HP Technical Resources to help you in executing your test plan.

Step 4: Document

Documenting your test results is a requirement of the program. Additionally, to gain visibility for your solution with the HP field organization, partners can submit a white paper to HP for approval that documents your results and defines differentiated customer value to your markets.

Click here to view the instructions on how to complete your white paper. Submit your completed white paper to: hpmoonshotpartnerprogram@hp.com

Step 5: Get Ready

Your test results and optional white paper will be reviewed by HP and you will be contacted within 10 business days. When approved, your documents will get added visibility on our websites and your company will be highlighted as one of our most valued HP Moonshot partners.

Now, together we build market momentum, identify target customers and together drive visibility and jointly promote your solution on HP Moonshot!
