The Future of Cloud Marketplace
Please join Sean Ferrel as we talk about cloud marketplaces, brokerage and the long term effects of managing your customers cloud strategy. The world of public cloud offers a whole new world of reoccurring revenue for all of us!
Over the next several years, public cloud management will be key to the success of both distributors and integrators alike. Cost management, brokerage, and overall management will be at the center of how we manage our customers and automation will allow us to quickly make decisions that allow us to make informed decisions when working with these providers.
Large Public Cloud Providers are just starting to gain maturity and most organizations are taking a deeper look at these utility models. While we all have our favorite cloud partners, so do our customers and it's important we look at cloud much like we look at purchasing airline tickets, compare all brands and make sure getting from point A to B is seamless and cost effective.
Will we live in a world where we bid our datacenter space out to the highest bidder or can we call the shots on price, performance and overall spend....we believe so!
