Rapid cloud adoption has brought with it an abundance of opportunities.

“The workshops cover industry insights, technical deep dives, and real life solutions that partners can add to their toolkit,” Lam says. “Partners will get industry insights and technical training from experts in their field in a relaxed and fun environment.”

Lam says that opening a cloud conversation enables us to dive into business processes and gain an understanding of what makes that business tick.

Bluechip Infotech sales director, Ron Jarvis says the QNAP Hybrid Tour is a unique opportunity to meet and network with like-minded people with the same goals and interests.

“Every organisation needs to have a cloud strategy of some sort,” says Jarvis. “The workshops enable us to learn something new and to see where technology is heading – keeping up with the rapid pace of change!”
