The voracious demand for application development, as the way to differentiate and gain commercial advantage has driven demand for a more agile computing environment. The meteoric rise of the public cloud appears to have satisfied this need, but not without its own challenges.

The two-tier go to market channel strategy typically adopted by vendors in the EMEA markets was designed around the sale and integration of hardware appliances. When everything is delivered as a service directly from the vendor the traditional value offered by the channel partners starts to drift into irrelevance, the challenge as always here is whether the channel partner can transform their business before this happens.

Inca identified this problem several years ago and was established in 2017 specifically to provide end user value over and above what is provided from the “as a Service” vendor. They acknowledge that this is a long business transformation and the necessity to continue to procure hardware, software, and services as separate component parts or managed services will continue for some while yet, however they believe it is unavoidable that these depreciating self-managed assets will have to co-exist with cloud services, with shared operations, management, security, and governance policies.

M-Tech understand the factors that influence their customer’s decisions and help them build an on-premise infrastructure, a full cloud deployment or a hybrid model that fits with the organisation’s needs.

Working with leading industry vendors and having access to a datacentre facility in close proximity to their head office means they can offer a range of services and SLAs not possible through other channels.

M-Tech recognise that today’s ever changing distributed workforce need tools to be able to collaborate and communicate more easily.

They will assess a company’s requirements and technical needs to see if a cloud based solution could benefit an organisation, taking into consideration such things as budget, flexibility and sustainability.

Moving wholly to the public cloud isn’t for everyone at this stage, so rest assured they will only recommend it if they think it’s the right fit.
