What Customers Are Looking for in A Cloud Reseller
All types of businesses are considering Cloud Services to minimize their IT costs, move from Capex to Opex, drive mobility, agility, productivity and improve collaboration and coordination. Customers expect the service provider to help them take the first step in the cloud and be with them as a trusted advisor, service provider, support them throughout the journey. Their expectations on services are high, because if it was just about the product, they would have gone ahead and purchased it.
In other words, when customers are looking for Cloud Service Providers, they are looking for much more than Products & Solutions. They’re looking for a trustable partner who will help them plan and manage their Cloud Operations. They want help in integrating their current systems and flexibility to scale their systems anytime they need. They want their data to be secure and the Cloud Platform to be absolutely reliable in terms of speed and uptime.
