Just a few years ago, “Cloud” was the hottest buzz word around, but if you asked many people – even those who touted themselves as Cloud providers – what “the Cloud” was, they had a hard time coming up with a clear, concise answer. As we move into 2013, however, the Cloud is increasingly approaching maturity in the market as enterprises understand how these services can streamline their IT infrastructure and applications when integrated strategically with on-premise solutions.
With Cloud services moving out of the hype stage and becoming a must-have IT solution, demand is growing from enterprises across all market sectors. At Liaison, we know that meeting the needs of our customers means helping them integrate and deploy today’s leading SaaS and cloud applications with their on-premise systems. We also know that achieving this goal begins with fostering strong partner relationships with the most in-demand Cloud vendors that have a track record of strong, consistent application development and provisioning.
This is why we’re so pleased to share that UBM Tech Channel has recognized the efforts of Megan Pulliam, our VP of Channel Sales, as a 2013 CRN Channel Chief. This elite list recognizes the channel executives who have driven channel growth through innovative programs and IT channel evangelism. This recognition follows closely on the heels of a similar accolade from Supply & Demand Chain Executive, which named Megan as “Pro to Know” in 2013.
Since joining us through the acquisition of Hubspan in August 2012, Megan’s deep relationships in the channel have been a great asset to Liaison, and we look forward to watching as her vision and strategy for our partners and customers continues to evolve.
