All sales kits contain material to prepare, attract, engage, present and demo PaaS and Middleware solutions. Especially I would like to highlight the cheat sheets. This one page overview contains key information to position the cloud services at our joint customers. Get this sales kits, adopt them with your service offerings and references, and forward them to your sales and marketing teams.
A great example of a PaaS showcase is the integrated cloud demo for air pollution control from S&P. Make sure that you promote your services and application in the Solutions Catalog and Cloud Marketplace. Let us know in case you have similar plans! Another highlight is the Red Summer School by Link Consulting. Four student teams got hands-on trained on the PaaS solutions.
One of the next cloud services to become available is API Cloud Platform Services. Watch the video why API Management matters and attend the community webcast to get an API Cloud Platform introduction by Robert Wunderlich on August 30th 2016. The API Management is a key component of a Microservices Architecture, read the SOA Mythbusters article to understand the difference to a SOA Architecture.
