One of the biggest challenges facing IT channel sales organizations today is maintaining their sales revenue through transitioning their clientele from on-premise infrastructure and software to off-premise cloud-based services. This fundamental business shift needs to handled very carefully such that the channel partner can maintain their role as the “trusted advisor” for their clients, providing adequate guidance and knowledge through that transition.
Thus there is a huge need for education and training resources that can better equip these organizations to lead these cloud conversations, understand the larger market dynamics of cloud computing, and ultimately exude a sense of trustworthiness to their clients. Unfortunately, the plethora of platform & technology vendors respective to cloud services coupled with the barrage of marketing information about ‘going to the cloud’ can be very daunting and confusing as to what your first steps should be.
