Focus of Parallels EMEA Partner Roadshow
Server virtualization, automation and software provider, Parallels, will conduct a seven-country partner roadshow targeting Parallels’ partners and other hosters, cloud services providers and ISVs. The EMEA Partner Roadshow will supply attendees with revelations and best practices to deploy applications and services in a hosted environment. The roadshow will also provide practical examples of how hosters can use white-label reselling to form a moneymaking indirect sales channel with a wider portfolio of applications, while maintaining brand autonomy and customer commitment. Johan Vansimpsen, CTO and founder at Network Group Europe remarked, ”Network Group is using Parallels to balance an enhanced approach for delivering IT resellers the absolute best technology to ‘grow with the cloud’ from the start.
We have a commitment to delivering a significant hosted communications platform reseller solution and with Parallels, we are now able to employ new services 5 times quicker, so logically we are predicting 5 times more income. Parallels also permits Network Group systems integrators ( SIs ) and price added resellers ( VARs ) a fast entry to market option that gives them the quickest path to patrons who trust them to supply the most flexible software and services packages at the best price points. In this pay-as-you go approach, SMBs are afforded an easy-to-use inexpensive service. An Apr 2009, study by IDC uncovers that expansion in the SaaS market will be powerful in Europe notwithstanding – and in a number of cases due to – the puny business conditions.
The general SaaS market will grow from 237 million in 2004 to 6,005 million in 2013 ( 1 ). From several up to date IDC studies, it is clear that SaaS has become accepted by the conventional of user setups around Europe.
This will end in continued robust expansion, making SaaS a rising star in a largely depressed EU software market. Dan Germain, CTO at Cobweb Solutions remarked, ”Leveraging Parallels we managed to increase our average income per user, employ new services quicker and reduce operating costs. It was vital for us to get a provider in a position to correctly support white-label services at a modular and infrastructure level, so that our partners can resell Cobweb services under their own brand.
Parallels enables Cobweb to increase cash from every client, both now and in the future.”. White-Label Reselling lets hosters delegate service plans to their clients to resell and supply a wider array of applications, without the extended value of infrastructure involved in making and distributing the applications themselves. White-label resale also offers an indirect sales channel and lets resellers maintain their unique brand autonomy, as well as maintaining customer commitment. With white-label web hosting, it is possible for anybody to run their own web hosting business, while they lease or buy the precise web server space and services from a longtime hosting provider.
Resellers don’t have to take on the enormous investment that make-up a web hosting service like web servers, network connections, information center staff, server directors, server support technicians and web server software and system licenses. The 2009 Parallels Partner Roadshow will be happen in : Stockholm, Sep 1 ; Amsterdam, Sep three ; Warsaw, Sep seven ; Cologne, Sep 10 ; Paris, Sep 14 ; Madrid, Sep 17 and London, September 21.
