Posted by thinkstrategies in Uncategorized. Comments Off on Creating Profitable Channels in the Cloud – A Guest Blogpost in Sandhill.com

20th November

Now that cloud computing has become a viable alternative for a growing number of small and midsize business (SMBs) and large-scale enterprise decision makers, the question facing a widening array of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS providers is how to build a vibrant network of third-party channels to extend their reach in the rapidly expanding marketplace.

This has been the focus of attention at THINKstrategies’ annual Cloud Channel Summit, supported by Sandhill.com.
