Channel partners fast-track transition to a ‘Whole-of-Cloud’ solution
With the maturing Cloud economy, more and more IT teams are moving their workloads to the Cloud, and more often than not, one single Cloud solution does not suffice. End customers are looking to their Service Providers to keep them current, competitive and deliver the optimum end-user experience through the successful application of multiple technology stacks.
For many Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Systems Integrators that means a rapid build out of a hybrid Cloud portfolio combining on premise solutions with integrated Private and Public Cloud offerings. The biggest challenge is how to stay ahead of emerging technology trends while navigating complex licensing structures and equally complex infrastructure requirements.
Harbour IT partnered with rhipe in 2007 to streamline their Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA) model. Now they’re working closely with rhipe across their full vendor portfolio, taking advantage of rhipe’s industry intelligence, billing and provisioning tools, and value added services such as marketing and lead generation.
