In two years’ time, 20 per cent of businesses will own no IT assets, and 15 per cent of all software will be delivered via the cloud. It is only a matter of time before end users overcome their nerves and fully embrace cloud computing – and the ramifications of this shift for traditional reseller businesses will be huge.
Ignoring the cloud is simply not an option – the channel has to change, and smart businesses will make that change now, to ensure preparedness when adoption becomes more widespread.
The new CRN Cloud Computing Forum will take a focused look at this most critical issue. Aimed at business leaders within the reseller community, this half day seminar will examine the opportunities around the cloud, as well as the threats, leaving delegates better prepared to adapt their business models to a cloud-friendly world.
