At Ingram Micro, our goal is to give you and your customers access to the most innovative cloud and digital solutions on the planet. As a result, we’re always thinking up new ways to expand our ISV ecosystem. This includes continuously developing unique strategies, programs and offerings that enable our ISV partners to commercialize emerging technologies.
In fact, two of our most recent initiatives will be front and center at Cloud Summit X in 2019. The first highlights our partnership with MassChallenge in putting together the Comet Competition, the only challenge dedicated to finding and funding high-potential technology startups. The second focuses on the launch of Ingram Micro Connect, a self-onboarding tool that provides a simple, fast and cost-effective way to deliver new cloud services to a massive, global distribution network.
As the must-attend industry event of the year, Cloud Summit X gives you more ways than ever to interact with ISVs while uncovering innovative ways to grow your business. Here’s a look at what you can experience:
Discover up-and-coming technology solutions
Be among the first to meet the 12 winners of the Comet Competition, and explore the exciting technological breakthroughs that earned them the support of MassChallenge and Ingram Micro. You’ll have the opportunity to learn more about these promising ISVs and forge profitable partnerships as their solutions gain greater visibility on Cloud Marketplace and beyond.
Make new connections at partner roundtables
Attend one or more of these 30-minute, ISV-led discussion sessions, where you can collect and share valuable knowledge in a small group setting. You can weigh in on focused topics, and hear what others are thinking as well. It’s an effective way to connect and interact with your fellow attendees. Plus, it’s the perfect opportunity to give direct feedback to the vendors that create the products and solutions designed to drive your business.
Get hands-on with advanced technologies
Sometimes, the best way to experience something new is to get your hands on it. Through workshops, labs and certifications led by product experts, you can take a deep dive into the most popular cloud technologies, while also gaining industry-focused insight.
At Cloud Summit X, the industry’s best and most innovative cloud solutions are on full display at the Cloud Showcase. And with nearly double the number of showcase hours compared to last year, you’ll have all the time you need to explore the latest and greatest. Plus, grab a beer or glass of wine during the Tech Crawl on March 12, and have a blast winding your way through the Cloud Showcase.
Increase your leads with our Business Intelligence offerings
Our Business Intelligence (BI) Demand Generation program is a great way to get end-user lead lists you can use to monetize demand. At Cloud Summit X, ISVs can opt in to reseller demand generation end-user propensity analysis, which identifies leads that can then be passed on to you as appropriate. By working with ISVs in this way, you can strategize with them on how to maximize the profitability of the leads you receive.
Experience the latest ISV breakouts
Breakout sessions at Cloud Summit X are immensely popular among resellers. Led by some of cloud’s most experienced ISVs, these sessions touch on cloud’s hottest topics, giving you comprehensive insights into how to strategize and sell more cloud and digital solutions. With sessions across eight learning tracks, you’ll learn about IaaS, IoT, XaaS, blockchain, cybersecurity and other technologies that can help accelerate your revenue.
