Partners pumping money into services to buoy cloud business

Channel partners in Canada are investing in new consulting services in an effort to boost their cloud computing business, according to recent study by IDC Canada and CDN.

Olvet presented the findings of the new report: Reaching for the Clouds: CDN and IDC Canada’s Cloud Impact Channel Study, at a workshop session held just before this year’s CDN Top 100 Solution Provider gala.
