IN PICTURES: ARN Roundtable - Revolution-as-a-Service: The changing role of distribution
The latest ARN roundtable brought together a stellar group of industry thought leaders to tackle the topic, Revolution-as-a-Service: The changing role of distribution. This exclusive roundtable investigated the role of the distributor in the new service based world, where the opportunities for profit lie,
where distributors should be focusing, specialising and differentiating – and how they can support their partners, at both the vendor and reseller level. This roundtable was sponsored by Avnet, Dicker Data, Distribution Central, Exclusive Networks, Rhipe and Westcon. Photos by ARN Editorial Director, Mike Gee.
The latest ARN Roundtable was held at Sydney's est. and drew a group of ICT industry executives to discuss the role of the Channel in guiding customers in their adoption of Cloud technologies in 2013 and beyond. Attendees considered the challenges surrounding the differing cloud models, some of the unique applications of Cloud in the marketplace, discussions concerning the quality (and cost) of Australia's telecommunications infrastructure, data sovereignty (and security) and whether Cloud is being over-hyped, and perhaps over sold, in this still immature market.
