"In such a fragmented marketplace, how do cloud partners find, vet and align with the right cloud providers to meet their customers’ needs...?"
Laguna Hills, CA; Bellevue, WA (PRWEB) August 30, 2013
Jo Peterson, director of converged cloud and data, TeleProviders and Manon Buettner, principal and CEO, Nuvalo, will present “Choosing the Right Cloud Service Provider” at Cloud Partners conference in Chicago, on Wednesday, September 11, 2013, at 10:15 a.m. Cloud Partners “Business Value of the Cloud” Conference and Exhibit is a Channel Partners event.
According to Gartner, “The market for cloud compute infrastructure as a service (a virtual data center of compute, storage and network resources delivered as a service) is still maturing and rapidly evolving. As each provider has unique offerings, the task of sourcing their services must be handled with care.”
For cloud services brokers — both agents and resellers — selecting the right providers is key to success. There are hundreds of options — ranging from legacy-turned-cloud brands to innovative (but often underfunded) startups. In such a fragmented marketplace, how do cloud partners find, vet and align with the right cloud providers to meet their customers’ needs as well as their own? This session will review the supplier landscape and offer tips for what to look for in a cloud provider.
Presenters Peterson and Buettner collectively have sold more than $23 million in cloud services to clients ranging from ecommerce and healthcare to financial services and technology, amassing a wealth of knowledge and experience along the way, working with providers to source cloud services for their clients. Buettner and Peterson are co-founders of Cloud Girls, a grassroots organization made up of women in leadership, ownership and revenue generating roles in the cloud services industry, providing members with support, collaboration and mentorship opportunities. The group’s mission is to empower women to succeed and to foster the next generation of women in cloud.
