Hey channel partner world! It's been over a year since I posted here but you can believe there's a good reason.
If you scroll through the older posts below you'll see that back in 2017 I stated that the "old telecom agent" way of doing business was being replaced by the "next generation" channel partner.
Well that was true back in 2017/2018 but now even the next-gen channel partner, as cool as he or she seemed to be in 2018 is now been being replaced by the ICTM or "information & communications technology manager". We'll explore at great depth what that means exactly but before we get into the weeds on all that we need to take care of the following association business announcements.
#1 - The Association is Now a 501c3 Nonprofit Dedicated to Creating & Educating New ICTMs, and
#2 - We're Rolling Out "ChannelPartner.TV" to Train ICTM Best Practices to Partners, Vendors & End-Users
The high points are all discussed briefly in the following video but, long story short, CIOs and IT directors need more than just a "trusted advisor" helping them select multi-location business technology & managed services - they need someone who can work with their IT departments on a daily basis to ensure multi-vendor, multi-location solutions are properly selected, installed and managed for the life of the contracted ICT managed services solution - enter the ICTM.
So watch the video below and then stay tuned for additional information. Email questions to Dan@ICT.ms
