Our experts agree: Cloud was the key facet that defined channel business in 2013. While much of the talk at the beginning of the year was more about Cloud’s potential, if anything the application of the technology exceeded expectations.
That is just one of the key points that emerged as we asked channel thought-leaders for their view of the year – the hits, the misses, the surprises and the big trends that emerged. And they had plenty to say. But Cloud clearly covered 2013.
“It proved to be an even stronger trend than we predicted. In 2012 it was all about and talking about it and powerpoint demonstrations. 2013 was the year we actually started doing it. And it took off,” Channel Dynamics director, Moheb Moses, said.
