The world of technology has always existed in an environment of constant change. The pace is accelerating and recent shifts are causing tectonic disruption across all industries. Technology consumers are leveraging this trend for competitive advantage and rapidly adopting the services consumption model, known as XaaS or Everything as a Service. As customer acquisition models morph to subscriptions, traditional partnering models and ecosystems are being challenged and transformed where differentiation is achieved through business solutions and not features. New partner personas are emerging to respond to the customer, as old ones fade away.

Join the discussion with two industry leaders sharing real world examples and the key questions they continually ask themselves while navigating the evolving partner ecosystem to survive and thrive in today's fast paced digital world.

  • How to recognize and strategize for the current and anticipated future technology shifts.
  • What kind of cultural change is needed to better enable new partner models?
  • Will building the new business development processes be flexible enough to support ongoing change?
  • Can alliance leaders design "future proof" alliances that accommodate ongoing disintermediation?
