CONTEXT recently interviewed Sam Routledge, CTO of Softcat plc and Abdel Bennour, Sales Director of Ingram Micro in France on their Channel Predictions for 2018
Hybrid Cloud becomes Reality
I’d say that the year ahead is the time that hybrid cloud becomes a reality. Most cloud deployments have been new applications and services, or backup/ DR for on premise workloads. With Microsoft releasing Azure Stack and VMware partnering with AWS, customers will have serious options for genuine, interchangeable, hybrid cloud
If you would like more detail, I wrote a post on this just before the turn of the year.
A French distributor speaks about cloud, virtualization and security
In a rapidly IT environment, it is critical to remain focussed on basics – partners first. On premise business still has great days ahead. Cloud, virtualisation or cyber security are overperforming and should be considered as key areas of development in 2018.
I would recommend that we all keep an eye on the human aspects of digital transformation which we have started.
From a personal point of view, life balance has always been a key success factor to manage the pressure of work. So more than just a resolution it’s a daily action which is part of my DNA. So I launch a New Year resolution of S.I.S : Smile, Interests (of others before yours) and Sincerity which is one of the best ways to care about yourself and others.
I wish all of you an amazing, healthy prosperous and joyful year 2018.
