Is your head in the cloud? Perhaps it should be
The worldwide public cloud services market is projected to grow 17.3 percent in 2019 to total $206.2 billion, up from $175.8 billion in 2018[1]. In fact, the IDC predicts that by 2019, more than 60 percent of organizations anticipate that the majority of their IT capabilities will be delivered through some form of public, private or hybrid cloud service[2]. 

These trends are testaments to the recognized advantages business leaders see in the cloud. The benefits of having a cloud strategy can be exponential for businesses; from dramatic reductions in IT costs to scalability, accessibility, and continuity of operations. But what about those companies that have not yet made the transition? There’s good news.

Tech Data is piloting a new online program available to all of its channel partners. It’s called Cloud Practice Builder. Tech Data’s Practice Builder empowers partners to build a profitable cloud practice using a new digital curriculum to assess their current level of cloud capability and receive a customized, step-by-step Cloud Path roadmap for cloud business transformation. In addition, partners will have access to Tech Data’s curated cloud tools, resources and templates for quick deployment. The expanded program also provides partners easy accessibility to Tech Data’s dedicated cloud experts to discuss critical components of their cloud practices, including strategy development, training and enablement, marketing services and sales execution. 

The team discusses the program in a short article available in the Cloud Channel Newsroom on the Tech Data Cloud website. You can also learn more by visiting the Cloud Practice Builder homepage. If you have questions or would like more information, reach out to a Tech Data cloud enablement consultant at tdcloud@techdata.com.
