The event will offer insights into how recent advances in cloud computing are disrupting global markets and shaping channel business strategies, while giving partners the opportunity to capitalise on the latest digital trends.
Attendees will gain an understanding into how the channel is adapting to new business requirements and what vendors and distributors can do to thrive. The immersive learning experience will consist of various interactive workshops, keynotes and breakout sessions, discussing emerging trends around the Intelligent Future of Cloud, and the workplace of the future. Other topics on the agenda will focus on evolving technologies including artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain, and cloud-based cybersecurity solutions.
Channel representatives will learn how to reposition themselves as advisers, implement innovative finance models and explore new methods of product marketing that will help resellers connect with new and existing customers. Attendees will also discover ways they can capitalise on the latest collaboration platforms and big-data analytics tools to empower their cloud offerings and offer greater benefits for end users.
There will be an opportunity to hear Apay Obang-Oyway, Director of Cloud & Software, UK&I, Ingram Micro, as he takes the stage to discuss how next generation technologies will be fundamental for channel sales teams to help end user businesses to achieve better business outcomes and make smarter decisions.
He said, “the industry is moving at incredible pace and next generation technologies such as the Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things and robotics - all of which are enabled by cloud - are already making themselves felt within industry today. It is therefore critical that channel partners have the expert knowledge needed to advise end users on their adoption paths and the confidence to make the strategic changes that the shift to cloud demands of them.
“This year’s UK Cloud Summit presents a fantastic opportunity for leading figures within the industry to share their thoughts regarding the future of the industry and offer advice on how the channel should respond to the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This knowledge will be invaluable for any reseller looking to take their business to the next level by giving them the tools they need to enhance customer loyalty and retention, and ultimately, drive greater profitability,” he concluded.
