The debate over which systems and workloads should run in the cloud and which ones should run on premise continues to swing back and forth. That means businesses are seeking not just nuts and bolts technical expertise from solution providers, but also higher-level guidance in IT architecture, business process redesign and digital transformation.
That means huge opportunities for solution providers. It also means solution and strategic service providers must work closely with their IT vendors for technical, marketing, financial and sales assistance as they and their customers migrate to new models of computing.
The 2018 Partner Programs Guide offers the information solution providers need to evaluate IT vendors they work with or are considering working with. The guide is based on detailed applications vendors submitted outlining all aspects of their partner programs.
As part of the Partner Programs Guide, CRN designates some programs as 5-Star Partner Programs. Here we present the 5-Star designees in the cloud technology space, A through I.
Other slideshows in the Five-Star Partner Program Guide series running this week include companies that provide systems and data center, cloud, network/unified communications, storage, peripherals and security technologies.
