KNIME Partner Award Program

If you're a partner or prospective partner with an active customer project for which KNIME may be a fit, please submit your leads here.


KNIME Partners are ambassadors of the KNIME brand and are trusted advisors to customers. They have a deep understanding of KNIME Software, data science, machine learning, artificial intelligence, and other relevant topics. They also provide expertise within their respective markets.

KNIME rewards partners via the KNIME Partner Award Program. This program recognizes KNIME Partners who share best practice, demonstrate outstanding customer service, deliver quality data science projects, train and enable existing and potential KNIME customers, are active in the KNIME Forum, and generate business growth.

There are two rewards. The Partner Innovation Award is one which partners may independently apply for. The Partner of the Year Award will be chosen by KNIME.


Partner Innovation Award

This award recognizes partners who share best practices by writing and publishing Innovation Notes or Success Stories. These resources provide benefits to the KNIME, data science, and machine learning communities by turning cutting-edge KNIME technology into actionable business insights. This means, for example, demonstrating how to make the most out of KNIME Server.

To be considered for this award, partners must first have a signed partner agreement. Partners must also submit a completed Innovation Note or Success Story (templates provided by KNIME).

To apply for the Partner Innovation Award, simply download either the Innovation Note or Success Story template. These must be filled out in their entirety in order to be accepted. We strongly suggest supplementing every entry with links to external documents that support your story (press articles, customer testimonials, analyst information, benchmarks, videos, awards, etc). Please reach out to us if you have questions around suitable content and how to structure it best. For some inspiration or guidance, feel free to look at existing Innovation Notes such as this one on pricing decisions or this one on building a recommendation engine.

Submit the completed template and necessary attachments (images, logos, etc.) to

Timing: Applications may be submitted any time from April 1 to December 31. Awards will be handed out in March each year at KNIME Spring Summit.
