I posted a new Voice of the Partner Blog earlier this week. It focused on Cisco Solution Partner, Tegile, and their work with the Minnesota Wild of the NHL. I love working on the Voice of the Partner series, as it gives me the opportunity to see what partners are doing with customers in order to provide real life, effective business solutions.

See how Minnesota Wild achieved a cost reduction, reduced power usage, and increases data center agility with the help of Tegile. There is an included, full case study and we welcome your feedback.

Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference

Gary Serda wrapped up his coverage of Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) by giving us one last recap on the Channels Blog. Be sure to check out Gary’s final blog on WPC.

We had several guests on the Channels Blog this week, including Sherri Liebo. Sherri was back with the next post in her blog series on the Superheroes of Marketing.

This week focused on The Alchemist. Being able to blend the art of relevant storytelling with the science of planning, precise delivery and measurement makes The Alchemist capable of dramatically improving revenue generation marketing by giving you a closed loop that drives sales qualified leads and also measures how those leads perform. The Alchemist then takes those metrics and makes the next marketing mix even more effective.

Be sure to check out Sherri’s blog for and in-depth look at The Alchemist, and give her some feedback in the comments section, or via twitter (@sherriliebo). Read More »
