The cloud and mobile : drivers for the midmarket

IBM just published a very nice video focused on the Midmarket and working with Managed Service Providers (MSP’s). I’ve embedded the video below – please take a minute to watch it.

A few of the take-aways that really stood out for me are provided below – none of these are new or a surprise but they are always worth a review. While the video is titled “Partnering with MSP’s“, there is some great nuggets in the video for any organization.

Video Highlights:

  • The cloud brings the capability for midmarket organizations to compete and level the playing field with larger organizations
  • Midmarket companies can pivot quicker than larger organizations – this is a key for competing with the ‘big’ companies.
  • Its not about just using technology…its how you apply the technology and how you make it relevant to that company and their customers
  • Mobile is driving business today and can be a competitive advantage for midmarket companies.
  • The Cloud is the enabler for mobile.

Enjoy the video…it is short but has a nice message in it.
