Cloud Strategies for Value Distribution Business



Cloud is an evolving landscape in technology enablement in which distributors face decreasing significance if they do not address their business model. Most distributors looking at methods to augment their strategy are at odds with which strategy would hold the test of return on investment in scenarios of direct route to market, around products they have traditionally distributed. Some distributors are now busy launching cloud deliveries around Platform as a Service, Software as a Service, Infrastructure as a Service. Also included are continuity replication, storage and disaster recovery solutions. These can be supported by availability of professional services to the partner base and supplemented by proactive remote monitoring and support, which can be positioned by the reseller to their end customers. An opportunity for resellers to white label the solutions as their offering to the customer base will make this proposition more interesting to the channel.
 
There is a huge prospect to provide value to the channel through cloud capacity building - whether as a consulting practice or an education partner to drive the acceptance, advisory and sales of the cloud business model. The prospect of enabling the channel to move away from traditional sales to the framework of selling cloud solutions is a tremendously opportunistic avenue for distribution. Services in the channel will be required not only for putting the infrastructure for private clouds together but building on consolidation, virtualisation and performance of this infrastructure. Enabling the reseller base in a structured manner to be able to deliver and execute these services can bring tremendous value into distributors.

The Clock is Ticking : BACKWARD FOR WOMEN

Sometimes it is just a customary sound; but a movement that takes us backward; instead of steering us forward.

2017 and 2018 have been the most regressive years in the progress of women. 

Since Trump became the President of the United States of America, a new culture of suppression of women rights has unleashed worldwide.  He has slowly degraded Women Rights by attacking fair pay legislation, defunding reproductive rights and changing the definition of violence against women. His attitude towards women is evident from the way he treats women and his objectification of the whole gender. In response, the women rights movement has revived itself, only to become negative and vicious.

No one wins when we have to fight. It is still a pity that we have to wave flags, march, hoist posters and commemorate each other on this day every year. We should not have to. 




The global economy could be enriched by about $160tn (£120tn) if women earned as much as men.

Avaya is out of its Chapter 11 Bankruptcy . I remember our first Avaya Project

Those were the days! Being one the largest resellers and specialists for Avaya Customer Interaction Centers and then their Distributors was just another story.

I was going over my old archives and came across the first time we won the Project of the Year Award for delivering the most impossible software and hardware integration of a customer interaction center in 90 crazy days and nights in Doha. I don't think the team slept for more than a year. We wouldn't go back home for days and live in fear of downtime ad infinitum, ad nauseum. The cost per minute of downtime was $60,000.

There were no weekends, there were no vacations. All we knew was to deliver this most important opportunity of our lifetime.

When we did get the time; we would get into monopoly warzones in the employee housing to keep sanity or watch pirated dvds of Prison Break and nonstop  Keifer Sutherland's 24.

It was just a never-ending spiral to build a company, to work so hard to beat a market that had never…
