GridSouth Networks Partner Programs
While the Internet and "Cloud Computing" have made conducting day-to-day business easier, management and security complexity combined with budgetary contraints make it difficult for businesses to keep current. Technology changes rapidly but businesses cannot understand and deploy new technologies as rapidly.
Services that were once deployed at end-user locations are being brought back into the cloud. In the near future, almost all IT infrastructure will be deployed as a service by providers like GridSouth Networks. As a result, IT consultants and solution providers will need to adapt in order to remain competitive and provide value to their customers.
As more services move to the cloud, customers will look to their solution providers for guidance about the best way to leverage these services. GridSouth's Partner Programs are designed to help solution providers quickly and easily capitalize on their position as a "trusted advisor" for their clients.
Partnering with GridSouth Networks provides an outstanding revenue-generating opportunity to resell some of the leading products in the growing cloud services marketplace. According to Gartner, worldwide cloud services revenue is forecast to reach $68.3 billion in 2010, a 16.6 percent increase from 2009 revenue of $58.6 billion. The industry is poised for strong growth through 2014, when worldwide cloud services revenue is projected to reach $148.8 billion.
According to a recent report released by the research firm Forrester, the cloud security market is expected to grow to $1.5 billion by 2015, with nearly five percent of IT security technology spending allocated for those services. As of Octber, 2010, the cloud security market is valued at around $200 million, with less than one percent of IT security spending allocated for cloud services. GridSouth's partner programs enable you to tap into this market without risk or high cost.
