What is Cloud Partners?

The cloud has changed everything in the channel—business models: sales cycles, the conversation at the point of the customer, and the vendors that partners are working with to meet customer demands. No matter where you have grown up as a partner—-as a VAR, Solution Provider, Agent, SI or MSP—-if you are selling cloud based solutions to meet your customer’s business needs, then you are a Cloud Partner.

Cloud Partners is squarely focused on the most important issues affecting the cloud channel today:

  • How can Cloud Partners maximize revenue for their Cloud Practice?
  • What are the most effective and efficient business models for a Cloud Practice?
  • What are the strategic cloud based solutions that meet customer needs?
  • Which vendors offer the most comprehensive cloud solutions and partner programs
  • How to scale discussions that move from IaaS to Cloud Security to Cloud Communications
  • The Business, Finance & IT discussion: From the Board (business value) to the CFO (CapEx vs OpEx) to IT (integration)
