Netrepid President/CEO Sam Coyl has been selected by executives at The Channel Company to participate in a roundtable session titled “Channel Directions: The Six Pillars of Cloud” during XChange Solution Provider 2014 in Los Angeles for his expertise in the cloud service provider business model.
“This topic is exactly what our business is focused on, and I have similar conversations with clients and partners each week,” said Coyl. “Part of the reason our technology solutions have transitioned to cloud-based services over the past five years is because of the high return and high growth opportunities they present. I look forward to sharing my insights on this with the experts attending XChange Solution Provider 2014.”
Technology solution providers have always been most successful when they have a laser-like focus on their customer set and a value add for their go-to-market partners. In a cloud-centric world, solution providers must decide where to invest for the best return and highest growth opportunities.
In this session, The Channel Company CEO Robert Faletra will discuss his insight into today’s top channel and cloud trends. In addition to receiving his insights, session attendees will also get a little help from his friends-six executives from six distinct cloud solution provider business models.
In addition to Coyl and Faletra, the five other executives selected for the session include:
- Alex Brown, CEO, 10th Magnitude, Inc.
- David Geevaratne, President, NEW SIGNATURE
- Glen Jodoin, VP of Marketing and Operations, GreenPages Technology Solutions
- Jason Lambiris, Chief Executive Officer, Apex Digital Solutions
- David Powell, Vice President of Managed and Cloud Services, TekLinks
Session attendees are expected to gain a clear understanding of the primary roles of each cloud service business model, along with the pros and cons of the following:
- Cloud Consultants
- Cloud Service Builders
- Cloud Service Providers
- Cloud Agents/Resellers
- Cloud Application Providers
The session is scheduled for Tuesday, March 4 from 8:15 am to 9:00 am PST, and will be live streamed and recorded.
