Topic 1 -Ask about branching out beyond reselling - hosting/Cloud; DevOps stuff like Colin does; mobile app development

Topic 2 - Who are the main buyers or influencers of technology these days?

Topic 3 - What technology or business trends do you see earlier than the vendors or media?

Topic 4 - How aggressive are the cloud providers pursuing the channel partners?

Topic 5 - What do you wish the vendors would change about interacting with channels?

Learn how moving from a traditional, on-premises delivery model to a cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) strategy is a high-stakes, bet-the-company game for independent software vendors. Brought to you in partnership with NuoDB.
