Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Just as technology changes the way business is conducted (think the arrival of the Cloud as an obvious example), it also changes the way customers engage. When customers change, the channel adapts accordingly, and it seems we are seeing new partner types emerge in response to the customer's changing behaviours.

At the recent ARN Edge 2017 conference, Jay McBain (Principal Analyst, Global Channels at Forrester) discussed 5 new partner types that have been identified and are now appearing in the marketplace. Read this article in full to find out what these partners look like and what role the traditional reseller still has to play in this changing landscape. ...Read More

Sizing Up The Security Spectrum

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Cam Wayland recently participated in an ARN roundtable discussion with a variety of vendors to explore the Security Spectrum and where the channel can really play a role. The discussions that were held were informative and productive in fleshing out what the security market and issues are looking like for 2017 and beyond.

It seems that while the security market has been big for some time, there really is no sign of the growth and spread of this market slowing down. Findings suggest that spending is expected to continue to increase in the coming 5 years and that Australia is currently the number 1 country globally for cyber security breaches. Discussions found that companies of all sizes and now also individuals are at risk of security breaches. Companies don’t want the public exposure and humiliation of having their Security breached and individuals don’t want to have their personal data and photos (for example) taken from them in a ransomware attack. This all means that we need a vast range of Security solutions to cater to both ends of the market, and all that lies in between. ...Read More
