​Auldhouse launches live online training for Microsoft technologies

Long-standing Microsoft partner Auldhouse has launched a live online training service for ICT professionals.

Long-standing Microsoft partner Auldhouse has launched a live online training service for ICT professionals.

Auldhouse Anywhere provides customers with remote telepresence access to classroom training from anywhere, increasing the number of course dates while saving them time and travel costs.

“Travel expenses can make up a significant proportion of the cost of attending professional training particularly for organisations based outside major centres,” Melanie Hobcraft, Managing Director, Auldhouse.

“Each dollar spent on travel costs like flights, hotel rooms and meals is a dollar that could rather be invested directly into professional development.

“Auldhouse Anywhere provides our customers with the same high-quality Auldhouse training experience they have come to know and trust. It gives customers access to our industry-leading instructors, certified by the world’s top technology vendors, regardless of where they are based.”

Hobcraft says Auldhouse Anywhere is available now on a selected number of courses, including upcoming Microsoft Exchange Server 2013, Microsoft Skype for Business 2015, Cisco Network Security and ITIL classes.

In addition, Hobcraft says Auldhouse Anywhere is making a greater number of training courses available to organisations, enabling them to respond to technology changes faster.

“Our customers want access to training on the latest technology as soon as possible to be able to implement those solutions in their organisations,” Hobcraft adds.

“With Auldhouse Anywhere, customers no longer have to wait for a course to be scheduled at their nearest Auldhouse training centre. They can now join an Auldhouse Anywhere class.”

As well as joining an Auldhouse Anywhere class from office or home, Hobcraft says students can also attend a class in Auldhouse’s training centres in Auckland, Wellington or Christchurch, led live by an instructor from a classroom at any other location.

“Just as other Auldhouse courses, Auldhouse Anywhere classes are instructor-led and fully interactive,” Hobcraft adds.

“Students can see and talk to their instructor, view the trainer’s slides and whiteboard, ask questions, and even interact with fellow classmates.

"Auldhouse Anywhere uses the latest Citrix GoToTraining technology to provide a high quality, live virtual training experience.”

Hobcraft says Auckland Council recently attended a five day Auldhouse Anywhere course at the company’s Auckland Training Centre, led by an instructor in Wellington.

“At first we weren’t sure if virtual training would work for our people,” adds Raj Yama, Network Operations Centre Team Leader, Auckland Council.

“However, we found that with Auldhouse Anywhere it was just like being in an Auldhouse classroom - because you are in an Auldhouse classroom.”

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.
