​Bring Your Own Licence demand strong as cloud purchasing moves up the stack

The current market for net-new, cloud-native application deployments is strongly overshadowed by bring your own license (BYOL) and application re-platforming

The current market for net-new, cloud-native application deployments is strongly overshadowed by bring your own license (BYOL) and application re-platforming, despite the onslaught of SaaS vendors and cloud-native applications in the marketplace.

Technology Business Research’s Cloud Customer Research Program finds that enterprise desire for cloud-based PaaS and SaaS solutions is rising as adoption moves up the stack.

Consequently, enterprises are seeking to re-platform, migrate or replace traditional applications in favour of cloud-based or cloud-delivered versions.

“BYOL acts as a steppingstone for enterprises on their way to cloud environments, allowing them to realise the benefits of cloud delivery without disrupting existing contracts or data consistency,” says Cassandra Mooshian, Cloud Practice Senior Analyst, TBR.

TBR claims that although application transformation through re-platforming is a growing need in the market that consultancies and cloud service providers are working to address, vendors that offer both legacy and cloud-based versions of their key applications are best positioned to meet the growing customer desire for application re-platforming or replacement.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
