Partner News Podcast: Avnet IBM Ignition '08 conference

At Avnet's event for IBM partners, solution providers laud the training they get from their distributor.

The Avnet IBM Ignition '08 conference took place this week in San Antonio. In this podcast, associate features editor Elaine Hom calls in from the Lone Star State to talk about Avnet's focus on training and certifying IBM partners -- specifically in government, healthcare and other vertical markets. It's all part of Avnet's plans to provide more value and drive more sales for partners.

The SearchITChannel.com staff also discusses changes to Hewlett-Packard's PartnerOne program, including the end of platinum, gold and silver designations.
