Tomorrow’s Infrastructure and Cloud Customer

30 Oct 14

What does tomorrow’s infrastructure and cloud customer look like? What are the global and local trends that are driving changes that impact your customers?

In June this year, analyst firm Telsyte reported that the local Australian infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) market was valued at $305m for 2014, and that the number of enterprises using IaaS in 2013 was double that of 2012.

Telsyte claims that cloud does not mean the end of on-premise IT with more organisations considering private and hybrid cloud solutions. In fact they predict that about 30% of enterprises will be using a hybrid cloud model in 2018.

What does this research mean for the New Zealand channel?

Distribution Central’s partner event, “Tomorrow’s Cloud & Infrastructure Customer”, will look at cloud and infrastructure trends and how this impacts tomorrow’s customer profile. Telsyte’s Rodney Gedda will be presenting up-to-date research, and Distribution Central will be chairing a live and interactive technology panel.
