Shifting towards services: Directions and challenges in the IT channel

Throughout the IT channel, solution providers are, in large part, defined by the services that they offer. For companies like Acronis to continue providing our partners with the solutions and support they need, we need to be listening to them. What tools are SPs adopting? What are the challenges they face? What’s working — and what’s not?

To take the current pulse of the industry, Acronis partnered with Channelnomics, Pax8, Dropsuite, IBM, Microsoft, and Novacoast on a collaborative study. Here, we explore some highlights from the SMB Channel Services Transformation report.

Safer Internet Day 2021

Today is Safer Internet Day — a time to reflect on the ever-changing risks we face when using the internet, and how we can take smart steps to stay protected online.

Acronis pros recognized as 2021 CRN Channel Chiefs

As a channel-focused company, everyone at Acronis works to provide our partners with the solutions, strategies, and support they need to compete. While the service providers, resellers, and distributors we work with often praise that commitment, earning recognition from industry observers is a nice affirmation too.

That’s why we’re so pleased to learn that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, just named two of our key team members – Patrick Hurley, Vice President and General Manager of Sales, Americas, and Amy Luby, Chief Channel Evangelist – to its 2021 list of Channel Chiefs.

MSPs: Start the new year off with time-saving improvements

If we learned one thing in 2020, it was that time is valuable, especially when you’re trying to keep all of your clients happy, productive, and protected. Managed service providers (MSPs) don’t have time to waste on clunky platforms or solutions. They need technologies that are reliable and streamline things so they can address the next issue – or maybe even get home for dinner on time.

As your partner, Acronis wants to help your team make the most out of the time you spend helping clients. That’s why, in addition to making some welcome UX improvements, we’re rolling out some time-saving capabilities in the January release of Acronis Cyber Cloud.
