SAN DIEGO — As Ingram Micro’s tenth annual Cloud Summit comes to a close Wednesday afternoon, the ChannelBuzz.ca Podcast sat down with the distributor’s Canadian leadership to discuss both the events of the week and the cloud business in general.
In this edition of the podcast, we talk to both country chief executive Bill Brandel, and cloud chief Greg Onoprijenko.
First, Brandel offers his thoughts on Cloud Summit X, how the distributor thinks about the cloud as a part of its overall business, and what he’d like to see from the company’s partners as they grow their own cloud businesses.
Then, Onoprijenko — who’s been attending Cloud Summit since its precursor events as Seismic — offers his rundown of many of the distributor’s announcements at the event, including enhancements to its Cloud Marketplace, the ability of vendors to self-onboard, and more automated more marketing support for partners coming soon. He also offers his opinions on how partners’ cloud businesses are evolving, why marketing is crucial to scaling a cloud business, and shares where his team will be focused over the course of 2019.
All that and more in this edition of the ChannelBuzz.ca Podcast.
