November is shaping up to be an exciting month for AppDirect as executives head to present at three different events next week. Each event provides a great opportunity for our team to network and share learnings with other leaders in the cloud community.
The Cloud Channel Summit
The purpose of The Cloud Channel Summit, being held on November 7 in Mountain View, is to foster greater communication about channel opportunities in the cloud computing market. This year, the conference will focus on why cloud providers should “enlist a broader set of channel partners to enhance their solutions to address the unique needs of specific geographic and vertical markets.”
AppDirect is a proud sponsor of the event. Our leadership will also be presenting a panel called New market Opportunities for Cloud Channels. More information about the agenda is available here.
TM Forum Management World Americas, November 10, Orlando
TM Forum Management World Americas was founded to offer service provider’s a place to tackle practical challenges surrounding the creation, delivery and monetization of successful services. A focus of this year’s conference, being held on November 10 in Orlando, Fla., will be the global adoption of new technologies, which are driving service providers to develop an array of new services, like cloud, in partnership across the value-chain.
AppDirect will co-present at the conference with Pamela Isom, Executive Architect at IBM, on a panel comparing and contrasting what it takes to develop a cloud business model for a mid-market provider versus developing a business model for the enterprise cloud provider. You will find more information about the agenda here.
The Small Business Web Summit
The Small Business Web is an organization of over 170 companies striving to make the Open Web the best place to build, find and sell software for small businesses. Like AppDirect, the software vendors power The Small Business Web believe small businesses should have access to cost-effective software to compete with big companies, with a similar level of support and customization.
The AppDirect team will also attend other major events:
- the gSocial Conference will be held on November 8-9 in Santa Clara, Calif. The conference offers a place for Google Apps resellers and Independent Software Vendors to collaborate, share best practices and partner to grow their businesses.
- the Under The Radar Conference will take place in Mountain View, Calif. on November 9-10. For the 18th time, the conference will bring together leading decision makers with pre-vetted startups disrupting traditional business methods.
- the SIIA Meetup invites its members to come and network during a special happy hour held in conjunction with Cloud Expo in Santa Clara, on November 9.
We look forward to meeting our partners at one of these great events next week. If you can't attend our panels, check back with our blog after each event. We will provide coverage, and, when possible, links to presentations and videos.
