For the first time after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Channel Partners Europe Summit returned to London. Partners, technology providers, distributors, industry experts and thought leaders from the EMEA tech space were present at the Summit.

The Summit brought the partners face-to-face and honored the EMEA winners of the 2022 MSP 501 during an awards gala that also included the EMEA winners of the Next Gen 101.

Speakers Ian Luckett of IT Experts and David Stokes, the leader of IBM’s EMEA partner ecosystem, started the day with optimism despite the impact of the stock market selloff, the war in Ukraine, the rising interest rates, and soaring energy prices and inflation. Next, a panel of 2022 MSP 501 winners talked about their businesses sustaining and them not seeing any signs of a slowdown from their customers.

“I am making the case for optimism,” Stokes told the audience, citing strength and channel opportunities in cloud, security, AI and data management, among other sectors.

Before Stokes took the stage, event host Luckett addressed the partners and said that they must look to fill the gaps in their portfolios and the only way to do that was to find the right partners who could drive growth.

Workspot Debuts Cloud Alliance Program, an Innovative Program for End User Computing Partners

Workspot | September 22, 2022

Workspot, the Cloud PC company, today announced the launch of the Workspot Cloud Alliance Program, an invite-only, cloud-forward, partner program. Through the program, Workspot provides members with the ability to sell its Cloud PC solutions to customers. Workspot will collaborate closely with members of the Cloud Alliance Program in helping customers accelerate their cloud transformation projects. Historically, partner programs have been very transactional with limited collaboration between vendors and channel partners. Through the Cloud Alliance Program, Workspot is transforming the relationship between technology vendor, channel partner and customer, creating a laser focus on the customer’s success. Additionally, making the shift from selling on-premises solutions to focusing on SaaS is at the core of long-term partner growth and overall success as well. “Customers are looking for solutions that accelerate their digital transformation in a multi-cloud world. We are proud to be collaborating with cloud-first partners that will enable us to jointly simplify our customers’ digital transformation,” said Amitabh Sinha, CEO & co-founder of Workspot. “Customers are looking for solutions that accelerate their digital transformation in a multi-cloud world. We are proud to be collaborating with cloud-first partners that will enable us to jointly simplify our customers’ digital transformation,” said Amitabh Sinha, CEO & co-founder of Workspot. Workspot has welcomed some of the foremost end user computing partners in the world, including Ferroque Systems and Entisys 360, among others. Core to the program is the selection of cloud-forward partners with extensive VDI experience, who understand the imperative of moving desktop workloads to the cloud to take their customers into the future. Workspot found it critical to choose partners who have a strong culture of customer centricity, empathy for the importance of the end-user experience, and a collaborative mindset that drives overall customer success. Ferroque Systems, a digital workspace and virtualization service provider, sees a significant opportunity to help customers modernize end user computing by using Workspot Cloud PCs and workstations. “SaaS applications continue to grow in popularity because of their operational efficiency,” said Michael Shuster, CEO of Ferroque. “With the post-pandemic market doubling down on digital workspaces in general for all workstyles, we view moving desktop workloads to a SaaS model as transformational for our customers with unique advantages over other digital workspace models.” Todd Hsu, President of Ferroque, added “Most of our customers have a multi-cloud strategy so they can optimize for features and cost. Workspot fulfills that strategy with its ability to deploy Cloud PCs across multiple clouds, manage and monitor them easily from a single admin console, and scale globally in minutes so our customers can respond to new opportunities instantly. That’s a great formula for customer success.” “Customers are looking to the cloud to achieve new levels of agility and security, and Cloud PCs have quickly become an essential component of enterprise cloud-forward strategies,” said Mike Strohl, CEO of Entisys 360. “Workspot’s SaaS platform makes it easy for us to move desktop workloads to the cloud and deliver the flexibility and reliability our customers require to keep up with a complex and ever-changing business environment.” In today’s IT landscape, having access to multi-cloud solutions is critical for customers to transform the end user experience and achieve levels of agility, security and reliability previously unattainable. As organizations’ cloud-first strategies mature, they are turning to their trusted consulting partners for cloud solutions that modernize end user computing. Just as many enterprise applications are now delivered as SaaS solutions, the modern desktop is now a Cloud PC, delivered as a service with massively simplified management. This model enables channel partners to easily fulfill customer requirements while also building a recurring revenue stream for their own business. The Workspot Cloud Alliance Program re-defines traditional partner programs and generates new revenue opportunities for members. Both parties work closely together to bring the full complement of technology, solution expertise and a growth mindset to customers, with ongoing customer satisfaction as the measure of success for all parties. Customers benefit from SaaS flexibility, with predictable pricing tailored to each use case and instant, global scalability to respond to new opportunities. Layered security enforces Zero-Trust policy, and innovative high-availability features that are unmatched in the industry keep the business up and running during a continuity event. These key capabilities accelerate digital transformation and future-proof organizations’ technology stacks so they can be ready for anything in today’s dynamic business environment.
