Emerging Technology Hub
CRN has launched the Emerging Technology Hub to track new vendors when they land in the UK
Welcome to the CRN Emerging Tech Hub.
With the number of new and emerging vendors entering the market seemingly increasing on a weekly basis, CRN has launched its Emerging Technology Hub to track new technology and vendors when they land in the UK.
To help the channel filter out the good from the bad, we'll be profiling these newcomers and quizzing them on areas including channel strategy; the number of partners they're looking for; employee headcount; investors and funding; and how they see themselves fitting into the market.
We'll also explore the role distributors have to play in bringing new technology from abroad to the UK, and look at how resellers can adopt new technology without losing business with vendors they have established relationships with.
