Don’t get stuck in the cloud:
Develop new high-margin offerings, pricing and service levels to get ahead


Wednesday January 18, 2012
TIME: 2:00pm ET/ 11:00am PT


If you are like many mid-size and large service providers, you have addressed the first phase in your cloud computing strategy by developing a new service offering using virtualized infrastructure, with some elements of automation built in. While still executing on that objective, it’s time to embark on the next phase and create a series of overlay services that will ultimately differentiate you from the competition. These new services will likely revolve around four core requirements: security, automation, orchestration and management.

This webinar will focus on the monetization of these services, made possible by the dissolution of traditional constraints and new ways to introduce and manage services. It will also include interactive Q&A with executive guest speakers from cloud service providers who will describe how they are expanding their cloud services catalog to drive business growth.

Other topics that will be discussed include:

  • New services opportunities for service providers in the cloud era
  • Providing and managing to SLAs
  • Monetizing the management of new services
Who should attend?

Decision makers at mid-size and large MSPs and hosting providers who want to introduce high-margin cloud or other value-added service offerings without creating management headaches.
