  • Building a big data practice

    For IT solution providers, there's big money in big data. That's because data volumes are growing at staggering rates, and SMBs are discovering use cases for big data. Perhaps even better for the channel, many SMBs don't have the skills needed to carry out big data projects. Yet big data is a largely untapped opportunity for the channel. This handbook aims to help solution providers that want to build a big data practice do so, with an exploration of where the biggest opportunities lay, how to build business cases, prep staff members, stand out from competitors, as well as a look at the steps two Microsoft partners have taken to build successful big data practices.

  • Channel appraises social media platforms for business

    Industry pundits have identified social media as one of the pillars of the next age of computing. And like another pillar of the next age, mobile computing, social media is an example of a consumer technology that is making its way into companies of all sizes, and in doing so, disrupting the status quo for IT organizations. In that disruption lies opportunities -- as well as challenges -- for IT solution providers.

    This handbook on social media platforms for business examines those opportunities, with discussions on social media integration, which is expected to hold the most opportunity for partners; professional services; and regulatory compliance concerns, where experts say conversations run much deeper than any specific platform.
