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.

“Software-as-a-Service rather than infrastructure is the biggest piece of public cloud business that we’re hearing from partners,” said Tony Olvet, group vice-president of research with IDC Canada. “…”that was a bit of a surprise for us. A couple of years ago it was all about infrastructure.”

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.
