The IT industry is abuzz with discussion of digital transformation. Unlike smartphones and cloud, however, digital transformation may actually provide upside for traditional channel partners. In this document, Techaisle argues in favor of the proposition that digital transformation will deliver new opportunity for traditional VAR businesses.┬áThis white paper begins with a debate-style proposition: that digital transformation will benefit the reseller channel. Techaisle believes that the proposition is correct. The combination of product transactions, ongoing management services revenue and tangible contribution to customer business success makes digital transformation a compelling opportunity for channel businesses. Those that are able to develop the required skills and processes will have an opportunity to reverse the channel’s declines in impact and business value, and establish their firms as viable long-term partners worthy of commitment from customers, suppliers and strategic investors.
