New Sales Play for EMEA Partners! Engineered Systems for Managed Service Providers

Many thanks to those of you who joined our partner webcast on July 2nd, where we launched the new FY16 Partner Sales Play "Engineered Systems for Managed Service Providers" (ES4MSP)!

The re-play link, the webcast slides, and additional resources are available in the Community Workspace, in the FY16_Sales_Plays_Engineered_Systems_for_Managed-Services_Providers folder.Remember: you must be a Community member to access, and if you are not, please register here (select the "Exadata" Community when asked).

 Why ES4MSP?

Over the next five years, a majority of organizations will stop managing their own infrastructure. Many of them will make greater use of dedicated and shared cloud offerings from Managed Service Providers (MSP) datacenters.

According to IDC, European managed hosting revenues will grow at+20% CAGR in the same timeframe.

The new Oracle Engineered Systems X5 family provides MSP's with the most cost-effective, reliable, high performance and easy to manage infrastructure for their datacenters - hence allowing MSPs to grow their business and minimize their costs.

In the launch webcast, Olivier TordoPaul Thompson and Giuseppe Facchetti talked about:

  • Datacenter and Cloud market trends, and the business opportunity for partners
  • The Oracle Engineered Systems value proposition for Managed Service Providers
  • How to identify the best target customers for an MSP proposition
  • Contents and resources available to you, for growing your business by building an MSP offering.
