Strategic improvements – including more seamless alignment across the channel hardware/software portfolio, and innovative IT consumption options – ensure we are their vendor of choice for all SP needs today and into the future. Examples of program enhancements available on November 1 include:
  • Flexible Capacity to enable Partners to align their data center operational costs with subscription revenues;
