ARN Connect - Transforming the data centre one block at a time
As businesses realise the importance of removing the IT shackles, in the quest for increased innovation, future-proofing the data centre has become a leading priority. Driven by a relentless need for more agility, control, simplicity and scale, partners are now tasked with creating full solution sets to meet the new demands of the customer.

ARN Roundtable - Finding and selling a niche in a digital world
As digitalisation strategies begin to take shape across Australia, organisations no longer accept the notion of a generalist technology provider. In light of the rise of emerging technologies, partners that can add unique layers of value are gaining greater prominence. Whether vertical or technology specific, forward-thinking partners now realise that staying vanilla seldom brings success, as customers place a premium on niche experts. Yet in parallel to the changing role of the partner, new influencers of IT are emerging across the business, with 72 per cent of IT buying decisions now made outside of the IT department. This exclusive ARN roundtable, in association with Telstra, discussed the changing dynamics of the channel in 2017, outlining how partners can specialise in a digital world, while attracting a new breed of buyer.
