HP Americas Partner Conference 2011 event kicks off Monday at the Aria Resort in Las Vegas, and ChannelBuzz.ca’s first-ever podcast helps solution providers get ready for the event.
First, we chat with HP Canada channel chief John Cammalleri about what solution providers can expect from the event. Then, we catch up with Michelle Warren of MW Research about some of the big strategic announcements coming out of HP’s recent Summit event in San Francisco.
In addition to teeing up APC, we talk to some other channel thought leaders:
- Avnet Technology Solutions’ Dan Allaby talks about the cloud opportunity and how the distributor’s CloudReady program helps VARs get there;
- Amazon Consulting’s Beth Vanni discusses the findings of the company’s annual State of Partnering study and how vendors are engaging their channels; and
- Pat Hume of GFI Software discusses the company’s plans for the Canadian market and where she sees opportunities for more solution providers.
