  • High-Value Partnering: Why 'Sell With' is the New 'Sell Through' Sep 20 2017 3:45 pm UTC 75 mins
    Rory Duncan, 451 Research, HPE, OnApp, Ormuco
    In the era of cloud, the significance of distribution to the supply chain is changing dramatically. Channel partners have moved-on from ‘tin shifting’ commoditized IT, instead working in tandem with vendors and providers to supply new kinds of complex cloud services to meet enterprise demand. As the focus moves from cloud construction to cloud consumption, the importance of these relationships increases, shifting the market opportunity to an ecosystem of connected specialists. Modern systems integrators, managed service providers and VARs are bringing higher-value, niche and vertical offerings to market that traditional ‘sell through’ models however, do not address. In this session, Rory Duncan, Research Director for Managed Services & Hosting, will outline the revised ‘sell with’ strategies that vendors and service providers alike must adopt in order to facilitate the delivery of high-growth services - including managed private cloud, security and disaster recovery – in partnership with their channel ecosystem.

  • Grand Strategy for Digital Transformation: Partner for Success [Keynote Session] Recorded: Sep 19 2017 32 mins
    Melanie Posey, Research Vice President, Voice of the Enterprise, Cloud Transformation, 451 Research
    The Digital Revolution is being powered by cloud but businesses and their service provider partners need a strategy to achieve digital transformation. The managed services approach for the next phase must include professional services, multi-cloud/hybrid implementation and management, and partner ecosystems to deliver bundled, lifecycle-oriented digital transformation capabilities. “Beyond infrastructure” services will continue to be a vital maintenance capability that businesses look to service providers to offer – akin to changing the lightbulbs in the building. Going forward, however, there is also an opportunity to provide transformation-oriented professional services and multi-cloud/hybrid implementation to help businesses rewire the building support new requirements (and keep the lights on).

  • Preeminent PE: The new Masters of the Tech Universe Recorded: Sep 7 2017 63 mins
    Brenon Daly, Research Director, Financials, 451 Research
    Forget Oracle, IBM or any of the other big-name, publicly traded acquirers that – until now --have always set the tone in the tech M&A market. If a tech deal printed in 2017, the buyer is more likely a private equity firm than any of the well-known serial acquirers on the US stock market. This is the first time in the history of the multibillion-dollar tech M&A market that financial acquirers have been busier than these strategic acquirers. To understand how the ever-growing influence of buyout shops is reshaping the tech industry, join 451 Research for an hour-long webinar on Thursday, Sept. 7 2017.

  • Moving towards XaaS: Could the Public versus Private Cloud debate be over? Recorded: Aug 23 2017 44 mins
    Rory Duncan, Research Director at 451 Research; Dan Havens, SVP, WorldWide Sales at Ormuco
    The cloud promises to enable organisations to be more flexible, agile and responsive to the needs of their business and the demands of customer and partners. As physical infrastructure has become invisible to end-users, the role of service providers and channel partners has changed. Faced with public and private options, many firms are taking a XaaS approach, embracing the best of both private and public worlds - implementing hybrid architectures to deliver on-demand access to compute resources, capacity, and services, while also providing greater levels of control, security, and visibility of data and applications. In this webinar, Rory Duncan, Research Director with 451 Research will outline the opportunities for Service Providers and channel partners delivering cloud services, examining topics such as support, managed services, data protection and data sovereignty for facilitating cloud consumption.
  • Not Your Grandmothers Network: What SDN Really Means Recorded: Aug 16 2017 46 mins
    Eric Hanselman, Chief Analyst, 451 Research
    We’ve been working through the impacts of software-defined networking for a number of years. The technologies that have reached the market today have matured considerably from the early implementations and there are tremendous opportunities that SDN has created. What were once model T’s are now a lot faster and a bit more furious.

    Those changes have also opened some gaps in understanding and management that can create operational issues and security concerns. SD-WAN’s are seeing a lot of deployment and the orchestration possibilities of virtual networks in software-defined infrastructures (SDI) are powerful.

    This session will dig into the implications of all of this new performance and look at ways to ensure that your network doesn’t wind up in the ditch. There’s a lot of good work to be done, but it’s important to understand how to master all of that power.
