Raju Chekuri, President and CEO of NetEnrich demystified cloud services today at the Cloud Computing Boardroom during the Xchange Solution Provider conference. Technology services see a movement from the ‘Closet’ to the ‘Cloud’ and Solution Providers can definitely cash-in from this trend. Onsite managed services and hardware have traditionally been the mainstay for Solution Providers thus far. But, IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), SaaS (Software as a Service) and PaaS (Platform as a Service) are gaining momentum in the IT services marketplace. Customers want their services be managed and monitored in public/private and hybrid clouds. They want their business critical SaaS and PaaS platforms to be managed and controlled for network performance and uptime.
Solution Providers need to stay relevant and support their customers changing needs – movement to cloud then is imperative! Granted, there will be many questions about launching into this new stream of services but NetEnrich can help. We will work with Solution Providers to map out the future – be it provisioning services in the private/public cloud or monitoring and managing network performance and uptime or applications or platforms hosted in the cloud.
Solution Providers have the unique advantage of understanding their customer’s environment to recommend/ manage an appropriate cloud solution.
- Get inserted into the IT organization in the operations side today. If you are offering managed services, you are one step closer to the customer’s IT needs.
- If you are not offering managed services, it is important that you get into the customer’s IT environment by doing Discovery and start understanding the internal onsite assets/inventory.
NetEnrich can help you to become a trusted cloud advisor. With the cloud, you can offer state-of-the-art consultative services, retain recurring revenue with your current client base, reduce capital expenditure and increase automation and expand your range of services to become a one-stop-shop for your clients.
