Brocade has a strong and established relationship with our partners, and a clear strategy that is focused on building partner revenue, creating joint sales opportunities and growing with our partners to deliver best-in-class networking solutions to our customers. The one constant we can all rely on in our industry is change, especially as customers make the transition towards the cloud, which is altering how organizations share, protect, communicate, access and derive value from their 'data' and IT infrastructures. This period of transition continues to challenge Brocade and our partners to provide solutions that enable these customers to achieve their business objectives against a backdrop of unknowns. In an increasingly mobile world where the proliferation of data is growing exponentially, our partners are at the forefront of answering that challenge because they are "the point of integration". Where challenges exist, so does opportunity…an opportunity to embrace change, to grow your business and to play an active role in the channel ecosystem.
This forum is designed to offer a platform to keep our channel community informed and to share ideas and expertise on how we can continue to deliver the best solutions to our customers. I hope you will add your comments and feedback and come and join the conversation.
