Overview:

Search results were fixed, and the following search facets were updated, and reordered: Specialty, Services Offered, Industry, NI Hardware, NI Software. If you had selections already in these categories, they have been mapped to the new terminology. The next time you log into the alliance partner portal, you should verify your company profile selections, and update your company's selections if necessary.

 

Problems That Have Been Resolved:

Partners will show up correctly in searches that map to selections they have made on their company or solution profile. Terminology has been mapped to align with National Instruments standard naming conventions for Specialty, Industry, NI Hardware, and NI Software.
