Around 500 Intel Technology Partners from Asia Pacific and Japan meet in Singapore this week at the 2014 Intel Solutions Summit (ISS). This week’s event is the fourth of five on the global ISS schedule, the company’s largest partner event.Ferhad Patel, director, reseller channel organization (RCO), Asia Pacific and Japan at Intel said the computing industry is undergoing rapid transformation, and that this presents a diverse and growing range of opportunities for the company’s channel partners.
“Intel’s strategy is to embrace computing in all its forms,” said Patel. “We are taking Intel Architecture into new markets, like IoT, while the 2 in 1 form factor is expanding into new verticals like education.” “Meanwhile, compelling new form factors such as mini PCs and all-in-ones (AIOs) are challenging traditional assumptions about desktops and driving renewed excitement,” Patel said.
ISS provides Intel’s Channel community with access to key marketing and business strategies, leadership, and information regarding specific customer solutions designed to help partners succeed in the marketplace. Along with informative learning opportunities, ISS is an ideal setting for partners to garner valuable knowledge from their peers and from Intel. Valuable programs include keynotes, the product and solution showcase, the annual Channel awards, education sessions and networking opportunities.
