XO, Verizon Sign On as Sponsors of Channel Partners’ CTTA Program
PHOENIX - VIRGO, an information distribution company focused on the most innovative and complex business-to-business markets that fuel the U.S. and world economies, announced the addition of XO Communications and Verizon as sponsors of the Cloud & Technology Transformation Alliance (CTTA).
These leading companies join existing CTTA sponsors, including AT&T, Cbeyond, Ingram Micro, Juniper Networks, RapidScale and SunGard Availability Services.
“We are pleased to have XO Communications and Verizon as part of the CTTA program,” said Katherine Clements, vice president of VIRGO’s Cloud & Communications Network. “The addition of these two companies as underwriters allows us to continue to provide our audience with the information they need about cloud and its impact on their business.”
CTTA is co-produced by Channel Partners and The 2112 Group, a leading technology channel consulting firm lead by Larry Walsh. CTTA is a community-based research program focused on identifying emerging technology trends and developing best practices for channel partners.
CTTA's premier education initiative is Cloud Insights (cloud.channelpartnersonline.com), a destination site for channel partners to find information they need to develop a cloud practice and to create business value for their customers from cloud solutions. The site includes reports, digital issues, slide shows, blogs and more.
CTTA also is sponsoring a concurrent education track on hot cloud solutions at the upcoming Cloud Partners (cloud.channelpartnersconference.com) event in Chicago, Sept. 11-13. The Wednesday track features cloud services that are “Door Openers”, including cloud data backup and recovery, unified communications-as-a-service (UCaaS) and cloud file sharing solutions. The Thursday track will cover solutions targeted toward the cloud-ready buyer, such as infrastructure-as-a-service (Iaas), desktops-as-a-service (DaaS) and cloud-based security.
